I grew up in Boerne, the place is growing like crazy. It's a buyer's market, a great time to buy if you can do it. What exactly is suitable for you? You can contact me at TravisGlenWagner@hotmail.com.

Boerne is a great place to live with close proximity to San Antonio, and highly rated schools. I can save you 1000's of dollars, by offering you a Buyer Rebate of 1% of any home that you purchase. Let me know if you have any questions about Boerne, TX or any foreclsoure properties in the area.

I keep asking myself what Recession? This area of the Texas Hill Country is growing; it is a Great place to raise your Children or Retire to; very diversified population. The Attraction here is the Close proximity to San Antonio which has all you could want in a big Little City. In Boerne/Fair Oaks Ranch the School District is one of the main attractions!!

Janat,
There is such thing as a national real estate market. You're moving to Texas, and if you decide to rent while you get to know the area around Boerne, that is definitely your prerogative. But, five of the best performing home sale markets of 2009 were in Texas. We did not encounter the economic downturn to the same extent that much of the country did. We were not immune, but we were the last region of the country to fall and we were one of the first to begin showing signs of progress. Get to know the market with the help of a qualified Texas Realtor, and throw out everything you thought you knew about real estate. I, too, moved to Texas from California, and it's just a fact that things are dramatically different between these two states. Find a Boerne Realtor using the Find a Pro feature on trulia.com, and ask them to help you locate a rental property. One tip I would suggest is to try to find a home to buy, that you may consider leasing for a few years until you can purchase it. No sense moving twice if the owner here in Texas is willing to lease their home to you for a year or two. This has proven to be a mutually beneficial solution for many new Texans in the last couple of years. Even if the home isn't listed for lease, ask the agent to find out if the owners would consider a lease. The worst they'll say is 'no'.
Have a blessed day!

Janat - if you want to experience the historic charm of Boerne by renting, there is an incredibly unique 1902 restored home on an acre, just 1 mile from downtown.

The 3200 square foot 4/3.5 has three fireplaces, a copper slipper tub, two living areas, original hardwood floors, stainless appliances, a 6-car garage/shop, and underwent a 6-figure renovation in 2005. None like it in Kendall County. I'm not a realtor but you should check it out: http://www.4hillview.com

Janat,

Boerne is still a great area to buy in! As long as you are on the Northwest side of town all the way out towards Boerne there are still some great areas to buy. Many parts of San Antonio have seen some slow down, however the areas north of town are still doing quite well. I would be happy to send you the numbers for a given area if you feel they would be helpful. The national market is not necessarily an indicator for the whole country! San Antonio is still considered the #1 place to buy according to a recent article by newswire.com and we have been lucky to see continued appreciation. Let me know if I could be of any assistance. Until then good luck!

Janat,

I apologize for the delay in seeing your question.

Downtown Boerne is a little outside of my service area, but I can get you someone who could really help you with any rental needs you may have in Boerne. If you would like, contact me and I'll get you in touch with someone from our Boerne office. Hope that helps.
