Military PCS to San Antonio: To Buy or Not to Buy a Home

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Real Estate Muses

 So what should you do when your permanent change of station order to San Antonio arrives?

 

One of the most important questions that you have to settle is whether to buy a home or to choose military housing.

 

For most people, buying a home is a fulfillment of a great dream. It is one of the largest investments one will ever make.

Here are important factors to consider why you should buy your own home if you're under military PCS to San Antonio.

However, buying a home for military families tend to be more complicated because they move frequently and sometimes with short notice.

 

So, should you buy or not? Here are some reasons why you should consider purchasing your own home.

 

Location Options

When you buy your own home in San Antonio, you have the freedom to choose the neighborhood where you are going to stay.

 

Does your family prefer an urban or a country lifestyle? These options may not be available with some military housing.

 

Do you have kids? Purchasing your own home also gives you greater control over the school district and your kid’s education.

 

Remember that the neighborhood where you choose to settle will affect the amount of peace and quiet you have, lot size, proximity to shopping, entertainment, medical services, and anything else you might want or need.

 

Quality Housing

If you choose military housing during PCS season, there is no assurance that you will be assigned to a living area that meets your standards. In fact, in some areas it is easier to find high-quality private homes than adequate on-base homes.

 

Purchasing your own home when in a Military PCS to San Antonio gives you the freedom to choose what type of home suits your needs.

 

How many bedrooms and bathrooms do your family need to live comfortably? Is the amount of space you need now the same amount of space you'll need in the future?

 

As your real estate agent, I can help you narrow down your options when searching for the most suitable home.

 

Independence

Living on base may make you feel connected to military community. However, there are some military personnel who prefer to buy homes because the idea of owning private property appeals to them.

 

If you choose to live off base, you will have the opportunity to connect with the town and with the people in the community.

 

Having your own home also means you won’t have to abide by some of the strict rules that often come with military housing, like lights-out policies, surprise home inspections or home and lawn care limitations

 

You have complete freedom to come and go as you please!
