11 Affordable Houses Close to SA Military Bases

As a city nicknamed “Military City USA,” San Antonio has its fair share of active duty perks. From local discounts to military support organizations and veteran resources, this city goes above and beyond to extend open arms of welcome to the brave men and women who protect our country.

And it’s no wonder! This city is the proud home of Joint Base San Antonio; a unit made up of Fort Sam Houston, Lackland Air Force Base, Randolph Air Force Base, and San Antonio Military Medical Center (the Department of Defense’s largest inpatient medical facility!). JBSA employs over 80,000 people and ranks as one of the largest bases in the country.

So how exactly does such a large military population find affordable housing close to work? While (yes) some military members choose to live on-base, many choose to pour their hard-earned salary into equity (and a more well-developed sense of “home”). Below are a few of our favorite San Antonio homes in close proximity to these active duty epicenters.
