San antonio home sweet home
San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the nation and one of the fastest growing cities in Texas. Its current population is 1.3 million, which represents a 2.8 percent increase from 2008. The population will continue to grow, as experts predict an increase of more than 25 percent by 2020. By 2040, the Texas State Data Center predicts that San Antonio’s population will be approximately 2,512,021. On a regional level, Comal and Kendall Counties are experiencing the fastest annual population growth at 50.3 percent and 48 percent, respectively.

San Antonio offers a vast selection of both multifamily and single-family residential housing. According to Apartment MarketData Research, the average rent per square-foot for multifamily housing in San Antonio is $0.82, compared to $0.83 in Texas as a whole. The average multifamily residence occupancy is 93.4 percent. Furthermore, approximately 20 percent of San Antonio homes are leased to renters.

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the median home price in San Antonio was $152,800 in 2009. This is 25 percent below the national average of $200,500 for the same year.

SABOR also reported that sales were up 52 percent and the average home price was down six percent from November 2008.

SABOR indicated that the increase in new home sales may be getting a boost from the Homebuyer Tax Credit Bill which was recently expanded and extended into 2010. The bill provides an 8K tax credit for married, first-time home buyers (4K if you are single) and a $6,500 tax credit for current homeowners. There is an 800K cap on the cost of the purchased home to be eligible for the credit.

The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M reported that during 2006 – 2008 the majority of homes sold in San Antonio were in the $120,000 - $139,999 price range.

Location, Location, Location
It is often the case that location will dictate where you choose to purchase or rent a home. Perhaps it is a particular school district that attracts you to an area or maybe a close proximity to your job is important. Are you the type who prefers the hustle and bustle of city life or does a quiet suburban atmosphere appeal to you? Whatever the case may be, when determining where to live, location is paramount.

The economics of where you purchase a home is another consideration. You may find the most value per dollar by purchasing a home north of the city. If you are working on the west side of the city, it may prove economical to purchase a home nearby and save money on gas. However, if you prefer vertical living then the Downtown area may be a good option, as it is home to many new high-rise developments.

If you are looking for multifamily housing, then the south part of San Antonio may be your most economical option. There has been a recent spurt in apartment building construction in that area. Conversely, if you are in the market for lots of acreage then the areas to the north of San Antonio may be just what you’re looking for. Situated on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, North San Antonio living offers houses with large yards surrounded by nature and breathtaking views.

With so many different areas in San Antonio, determining what location is best for you can be an arduous task. Especially when you consider that as San Antonio continues to grow, more areas are incorporated on the outskirts of town. These areas are becoming “incorporated cities,” often with their own civic services such as police and fire departments. The following pages of this chapter will provide you with a glimpse of what San Antonio has to offer. It will serve as an introduction to many of San Antonio’s communities with detailed information on select neighborhoods, as well as information on new subdivisions or multifamily developments in the area.

Downtown
The Downtown area is at the heart of San Antonio, surrounded by three freeways, I-35, I-37, and I-10. Downtown is a very popular tourist destination with attractions including the Alamo, Historic Riverwalk and the Tower of the Americas. It is also home to the popular Rivercenter Mall. The Downtown area is within the San Antonio Independent School District.

The Downtown area is comprised of many districts, including the Alamo District, Alamodome District, Central Business District, Convention Center District, Historic Civic District, Houston Street District, King William Historic District, Lavaca District, La Villita District, Market Square District, North Downtown, River North District, San Antonio CO-OP District, River Bend District, South Flores Warehouse District, SoSo (South of Southtown), Southtown, Eastbourough and the University District.

— King William Historic District
The King William Historic District is located immediately south of downtown San Antonio on the east bank of the San Antonio River. The area has a rich cultural landscape, which includes some of the oldest homes in the city. The neighborhood is rich with culture including art galleries, restaurants and quaint lodging. The Blue Star Arts Complex sits on the outskirts of the district offering a significant contribution to the area’s cultural heritage. Southtown, the area’s commercial section, is a flourishing epicenter for local businesses.

Residential properties in the King William Historic District range in size from small bungalows to mansion-level proportions. There are variety of architectural styles, including Greek cottages and 16th century Italian imitations. Many of the lavish homes were built in the 1800s and represent an opulence and ornate style symbolic of the period.

Residents in the area come from a variety of backgrounds, yet, are united by an “urban-village” lifestyle. The similarity in lifestyle and heritage has compelled residents to form a 300-member neighborhood group called the King William Association. The association has been “designed to address urban neighborhood issues, communicate ideas to city officials and provide information to residents and visitors.” For more information on the King William Historical District or Association visit www.kingwilliamassociation.org.

— River North District
Recently a master plan has been developed to transform the River North District into an “urban village” with a sound residential constituent. The River North District Master Plan results from the realization that, while the Downtown District has a significant population of residents and businesses, the River North area is underdeveloped. The River North District consists of 377 acres between the Downtown District and the I-35 and I-37 expressways.

The master plan calls for the creation of new residential units, storefront retail space, office space, infrastructure improvements, structured and on-street parking, landscaping and the formation of public spaces connecting to the River. In addition, the plan proposes the development of meandering sidewalks, a new streetcar line, a vibrant new performing arts district and the construction of a major new plaza at the San Antonio Museum of Art. Once completed, the master plan will help reduce congestion and sprawl, promote managed growth, enhance neighborhood identity, utilize existing infrastructure, reduce energy consumption and produce a more sustainable economy for the River North District.

Primarily a residential area, Helotes has one well-known attraction, the John T. Floore Country Store. Not a store at all, but rather a country dance hall, the venue has hosted the likes of Willie Nelson and other legendary performers. In San Antonio, Helotes is best known for its annual Cornyval.

The area defined as Pecan Valley is encircled by Roland Avenue, East South Cross and Pecan Valley Drive. It is a neighborhood that, after a period of decline, is now part of a large-scale restoration effort. There are thousands of homes in Pecan Valley that are relatively modest in price.

— China Grove
China Grove is a small town located in the southeastern corner of San Antonio. With only 4.12 square miles of land, the area is truly a close-knit community that provides refuge from the constant growth of the nearby city. Homes and condos in China Grove are moderately priced with an estimated median value of $193,100. For people looking to spend less to purchase a home, there are many mobile homes available for around $35,000. However, if you are looking to rent as opposed to purchase a home, China Grove may not be the most conducive to your plans. It is estimated that only five percent of the area’s 400 plus homes are rental properties.

The median age of residents in the area is 39.8 and the median household income is just over $80,000 per year. Slightly over 1,300 people currently call China Grove home making it a great place to get to know your neighbors, especially considering the population density is approximately 317 people per square-mile. Students in China Grove are serviced by the East Central Independent School District.

Any discussion of China Grove requires a mention of what put this quaint town on the map. China Grove, the song, was recorded in 1973 by the Doobie Brothers. Legend has it that while riding through San Antonio in a taxi cab, the band members saw a sign for the town and became inspired to pen the lyrics to the now famous song. Alternate theories speculate that the band was told of the town’s existence after the song was written.

Much More to Offer
While this chapter of Relocating to San Antonio has provided an overview of San Antonio’s neighborhoods and communities, it is important to remember that the city has much more to offer.

Additional city, community and neighborhood information can be found on the same Web sites used in the compilation of this chapter, including www.city-data.com, www.census.gov and www.sanantonio.about.com.
