San Antonio, TX, the “Alamo City”

Founded by Spanish explorers like many towns of the Southwest, San Antonio began as a mission settlement in 1718 and later grew as frontiersmen and women ventured west.  A living landmark representing the ideals of freedom and independence, San Antonio is the site of the famous battle of the Alamo in 1836, in which 189 men defended the old mission against thousands of Mexican troops in the charge of Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana.  Now the Alamo rests safe in the heart of San Antonio, and serves as a museum to the community and tens of thousands of visitors every year.

Although the mission draws the majority of tourism to the city, a lesser known gem is the San Antonio River Walk area, located downtown 20 feet below street level along the banks of the San Antonio River.  This peaceful walkway features cobblestone paths that wind their way through the city’s business district, where pedestrians can enjoy unique shopping, dining at sidewalk cafes, and frequenting their favorite nightclubs.

Between maintaining the Alamo and funding a project as extensive as the River Walk, it’s clear that the nearly 1.2 million residents of San Antonio take pride in their city and work hard to make it a fantastic place to live.  But the city also works hard for its residents; due to its steady increase in population, buying a home in San Antonio is considered to be a good, solid investment.  A typical three bedroom home in the area averages at $125,000, but tapping into the San Antonio real estate market will demonstrate that there are many options available when buying a home in San Antonio.

If you prefer to live in an urban setting, perhaps a low-maintenance condominium in downtown San Antonio is right up your alley.  Condos on the River Walk are some of the most desirable real estate options, providing luxury living and inspiring views of the city’s heart and soul.  Condominiums and lofts in downtown San Antonio average anywhere from $200,000 to nearly $800,000 for the most opulent models.

Single family homes in San Antonio range from turn of the century Victorian style houses to brand new constructions.  The city offers many distinct communities, such as the quiet and historic Midtown neighborhood of Beacon Hill, and the upscale Hill Country Village, with its country setting and spacious homes, some of which have tennis courts, pools, and even horse stables.  Whether you are looking for a majestic home with panoramic views, a historic renovation with a cozy fireplace or an effort-free condominium in the city center, San Antonio will meet your real estate needs.
