Tips for Choosing a Neighborhood in San Antonio
Which San Antonio neighborhood best fits you and your needs? We’ve put together a few tips for the Alamo City house hunter so that you can make the decision with confidence.
1. Location, location, location
You may think it's cliche, but this token real estate phrase is timeless for a reason. The location of your neighborhood really is everything. From commute time to school zoning to traffic patterns and leisure habits, your neighborhood zip code should be a key part of your housing decision. For example, if you work (or spend all weekend) in Southtown, but you live on the Northside, you may find yourself regretting your neighborhood of choice.
If you have kids, then you know that for many, neighborhood choice is largely influenced by school districts. Check out district boundaries here, then double check with your Realtor that the particular home you're looking at is zoned for the school you like!
3. Cost of Living
Finally, we urge you to consider the cost of living associated with particular neighborhoods. For example: a luxury San Antonio neighborhood may also come with other heightened prices (from grocery to leisure to gas). You want to afford your mortgage payment and all other living costs!
