Tegan Larsen, Home Buyer in San Antonio, TX

I was curious if there were any publicly available resources for trends within individual San Antonio suburbs (demographic, populations, rental rates)

I am just beginning to look in to investment real estate and want to start identifying areas of interest. Any information would be a huge help!

Hi Tegan! Yes, the San Antonio Board of Realtors provides this information...check out this link:

http://realestate.sabor.com/pages/city-and-neighborhood-info…

If you type in an address, and click the various tabs, you can get crime stats, school info, community stats, etc....hope this helps. I am an investor locally also (holding for long term gain and asset accumulation). If you are beginning as an investor, please check out my Blogs: http://www.trulia.com/blog/dddrealtor/

If I can be of any assistance, please let me know. Have a great rest of your weekend.

Hi Tegan,
There are a lot of resources and most give general data. For specific data you will need to have access to the main systems such as the San Antonio Board of Realtors MLS or have someone such as myself gather the specific information for you and share it.
As an investor I look at the very data you are seeking so I'd be happy to discuss this with you.
Please call me at 210-232-2310 to discuss.
Sincerely,

Indeed there are... you are on one of the sites now. Trulia.com and Zillow.com are not bad ways to start... and then the San Antonio Board of Realtors put us a nice tool for the general public to use as well..

Nothing will replace an experienced agent running you comparables and sending you up to date lists of good investment homes... but you can do a lot of homework on your own as well..

Home investment is not just all about numbers on a computer screen though... I did 1498 investment homes over a 10 year period... and must have looked at literally thousands of homes per month, and all of them were purchased based on gut feelings and the comparables in that specific neighborhood... and the best advice I can give you is... SPEED is the key... when you see one that looks good on paper and in person... you have all the time in the world to send them a solid offer as long as you do it in the first 5 minutes. ;)
