Are you relocating soon to San Antonio TX?
San Antonio is known as "Military City USA". The city has five military installations located in its perimeter.

If your next duty station is Fort Sam Houston, you’re probably thinking about where your next home is going to be. Picking out a new house can be exciting and challenging at the same time. How do you choose the best location? How do you know if it’s the right one?
Let me share with you a few tips that will make the process easier for you as you decide which to choose among the Fort Sam Houston homes for sale.
1. Set your priorities
Before looking at any houses, take time to identify and write out everything you want in your next home. Don’t forget to ask input from other members of your household. You can’t start house hunting until you know what you’re looking for.
How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you need? Do you want a private garden? What type of home do you want?
The homes near Fort Sam Houston come in nearly all sizes, styles, and not to mention, prices. There are ranch-style homes, vintage looking houses, and modern properties.
The homes can be as small as 960 square feet and as large as 3,200 square feet. Most of the properties have between three to five bedrooms and two to four bathrooms. There are features such as swimming pools, large living spaces, and access to nearby parks and playgrounds.
Be realistic with your list and determine your must-haves and what you would be willing to compromise on. This will definitely make your search easier.
2. Determine your budget
You need to figure out how much you can afford. You don’t want to look at houses that are way beyond your price range.
The prices of the homes are influenced by their distance to Fort Sam Houston. Single-family detached homes, condos, and townhomes which are approximately fifteen minutes driving time from Fort Sam Houston usually range from $100,000 to $500,000.
On the other hand, properties that are a bit farther from Fort Sam Houston can range in price from $100,000 to $300,000 and up.
