As suggested below, Monte Vista/Alta Vista has some really cute one bedroom apartments for the amount you want to spend. They are close to downtown and college campuses. so there are many young people in the area.
In addition, you can check out the Stone Oak area. There are many nice apartment complexes and even more bars in the area. The rent can be steep, but a small one bedroom should be around your price range.
Let me know if I can help!

Please tell me the most ideal place. Willing to spend up to $1200 a month including rent/utilities/etc. I will be an outside sales rep so I would like to live in the most ideal spot possible, not worried about commute, just quick access to major interstates. 29 year old single male who likes to be social. Would prefer a one bedroom flat/condo/apartment. thanks

Welcome to SA! I would recommend the Monte Vista and Olmos Park areas which are close to downtown and have many bars and restaurants close by. Also, check out Alamo Heights or Oakwell Farms areas. Both have great options for condo or apartment rentals. I have in mind some specific rental communities I could give you more information on in your price range.

Just call or e-mail me! I am happy to help!

Cass,

Congratulations on the move, San Antonio is a great place to live. I am in the same age group and I highly prefer the Downtown or even uptown area. The Quarry is also a great place to live. Local bars, restaurants, shopping are all very close. But I feel for the price range it may not be doable since rental rates in that area are increasingly high. I would get in touch with an apartment locator.

Best of luck with the move,

Cass,
I currently live at Artessa, but am sad that I meet no one in my hallways and we don't do many resident mixers. Would the Pearl or somewhere down that way be better?

Is there any way I can talk you into taking advantage of what will probably be the best buyer's market we may ever see in our lifetimes?

Prices are down
Interest rates are WAY DOWN
Sellers are willing to wheel and deal

If you buy a home now:

* You will get more for your money - Rentals never stack up to homes you can buy for the same payment

* Tax Write-off - You can write off the interest you pay on your mortgage, you can't do that with rent

* Build Equity in the home - Each time you make a payment, you are that much closer to owning it!

* Gain Appreciation - Homes tend to go up in value... the home is worth more than you bought it for!


If you rent a home: You get nothing!

:)
