More Bang for Your Buck: 6 SA Homes With A Crazy Low Price Per Square Foot

We have all heard that San Antonio is affordable. While folks on the East and West Coasts are paying exorbitant amounts for, well, everything, we San Antonians are spoiled by cheap (er) gas, land, and housing. And even though the prices of those items have gone up in the past few years, there are still deals to be had. Especially on housing.

Given that the average price of a home in the Alamo City hovers right around $230k, outsiders may drop their jaws at how inexpensive the housing is here… especially when you consider that the average price per square foot here is $106 in comparison to the average price per square foot of $300+ in places like Boston and San Diego.  Yep.  $300.. Per.  Square. Foot.  Can you imagine??!

But we get it.. $106 per square foot still feels high and you want to pay less because, hey, everyone wants a great deal! Well, you are in luck. Even with the city averaging at $106 per square foot on residential housing, we found several homes that came in far below that. Take a look.
