The New Market in San Antonio

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Net Branch Real Estate Services

According to a web site called NuWire Investors, San Antonio is the top city for real estate investment.  The rankings considered population, job growth, home values, vacancy rates and unemployment rates.  They also considered affordability, which was determinied by comparing median income for the area to average expenses.  According to CNN, San Antonio has one of the best job growth rates in the county for college educated business and technical professionals.


As a broker and appraiser, I am seeing first hand the opportunities that the community has to offer to those moving here and thereby real estate professionals. Prior to 2005, the city's growth was stable at approximately 5% per year.  Since the fourth quarter of 2005, San Antonio's growth has skyrocketed.  Downtown and North San Antonio has seen the most significant price increases, but each quadrant of the city has seen substantial growth in prices.

Darryl,  Did San Antonio have big appreciation in the past few years?  Why do you think prices are going up so fast in this market vs. other markets across the country?
