I live in that area and I see prices around 135k which is the average home price in San Antonio. There are going to be some better areas and not so great areas.

Buying Now,

Bandera Landing is a well maintained community located just off Bandera as you said. This is a community that is not appreciating as well as others due to the west bound growth toward Alamo Ranch, Helotes, & then outside Loop 1604 on Potranco. Some people want newer homes with many community amenities. That begs the question, why are you moving? Do you need amenities? Does traffic concern you? Where do you work? Do you want to deal with new construction noise? Does appreciation or depreciation concern you?

If you’re not already work with a realtor you should. I can help you with many of those issues. We’re not just about finding homes and transacting paperwork. I’m an objective, knowledgeable, experienced realtor that you can trust to help guide you toward making the right decision.

If what you are looking for is specific statistics, you need to go to the SA crime website:

Overall, I think you will find that most of the greater San Antonio area is declining in value largely due to the number of foreclosures and we have not seen the last of them yet. However, we are not seeing the decline in value as other States because we did not have the spikes in value they had. We also have a strong employment position that will keep us from seeing too much decline.

Buying Now... that is an awesome name. I am thinking about naming my next child after you.. is that okay with you?

Just kidding...

I think the area is nice, and doing fine. There are always those homes that are neglected, but most of those homes are well cared for and show pride-of-ownership. I was just over there yesterday, showing another "Buying Now" client and we are making an offer on an home over there...

Let me know if I can help. By the way, make sure you have professional assistance when buying a home.. otherwise, you will change your name from Buying Now, to "Deeply Regretting"

All the best

This is a great question, Buying Now! I've helped several clients in the past few years to buy beautiful and affordable homes in this area. I agree with Matt's answer that many of the homeowners are moving out of there in order to move up or to downsize, but that it is still a very desirable and affordable area. It's very convenient to the medical center, UTSA, many major employers like USAA, and in the acclaimed Northside school district. I would recommend driving around the neighborhood in the evening and on the weekends to get a better feel for it as well as taking time to tour some of the homes in order to help you form your opinion of the area.

If you have further questions, would like me to send you homes in the area that meet your criteria and schedule a time to show them to you, or need anything at all, please let me know. Happy house hunting!

Best regards,

Buying Now,

I just moved out of that area. I think a lot of the movement out of there is the result of homeowners having been there for a long time and looking to downsize or move-up (depending on their position).

I loved the neighborhood - it was a nice mix of suburban area with a lot of trees.

The last time I was in that area it seemed to be stable. Exactly what do you mean by is it going down? If you are interested in if there are many foreclosures in that area check out the Bexar County Clerk website. If you mean crime statistics check with the SAPD website.
Sorry, but I am not sure just what you want to know and for what reason.
