How much do you want to pay for rent?
San Antonio covers a large area, so is it important to you to be close to a particular area for work? Does traffic or a longer commute bother you?
Are you looking for any amenities, like pool, workout center, etc., to be available in the apartment complex? Are you looking for a luxury apartment or would more basic options be fine for you?
How many bedrooms/baths do you need?
Depending on what you are looking for there are different options available. With the rental market as competitive as it is right now, narrowing down your desired area/complex is a great idea so you can be ready to lock one down when you are much closer to your move-in date.
Best of luck!

San Antonio is a large city and there are several excellent areas to live in. However, I highly recommend contacting an apartment locator to help you find an apartment. They will have through knowledge on what is available based on location and price. Since you still have some time before your move research some areas that you may already have in mind.
Have a blessed day!
