I'm hoping by now you've found the answer you were looking for and even better yet, found a home. The Realty Pak is a great source for this kind of thing. It lists all the current builder incentives, inventories, projected finish dates, and prices for Realtors to use as a resource when looking for new homes for clients. Speak with a Realtor and feel free to ask them specifically about the Realty Pak as a guide to what's available if you're still looking. Hopefully that will get you started on the right path, if you haven't already found what you were looking for.

Any Realtor can help you find what you are looking for. The main thing to consider here is that extra inventory is dwindling in SA and Builders will not offer you the same incentives if you are not represented by a Realtor. I strongly suggest you contact a Realtor you feel most comfortable with and allow them to help you reach your goals.

I agree with both suggestions from the other answers. Do you have any idea what side of town you want to be on? If you are okay with going to the East or the West you may be able to find what you are looking for. I would maybe even suggest the Cibolo/Schertz/New Braunfels area if you don't have to be in the actual city of San Antonio. I have another client looking for that exact thing and we just couldn't find what we were looking for on the Northside of town but have had much better look by expanding our area. Good luck and let me know if I can help any further!

My best suggestion to you and for your family is to get prequalified with your bank or a mortgage company. The loan officer will provide you with the loan product and inform you of the the seller contribution amount (if any) that is needed for closing costs. However, since you will be working with a builder most or all have there preferred lenders. Once you prequalify with a builder or mortgage company this prequalification is good for up to 3 months. Many of the builders in San Antonio and surrounding areas want your business. They have good incentives on inventory and incentives on dirt sales. Because the builders salespeople work for the builder you will want to have buyer representation (from a Buyer Agent )before you start your house hunt. Should you wish to have buyer representation. Please contact me at laurazunigac21@hotmail.com or you may telephone me direct at (210) 363-4782 to schedule a homeownership orientation meeting. At this meeting we will discuss Information of Brokerage services, General Information to Buyers, the Buyer representation agreement. Plus, discuss the area builders that you will want to visit in and around San Antonio. I look forward to helping you with your homeownership needs,

Hey there!! Buyer Builder close out is a great idea... however, the super deals are pretty much gone. When the market dropped dramatically, all of teh builders discounted all of their available inventory and unloaded as fast as tehy could. It was a feeding frenzy. Now, most of the builders are operating more carefully. With that said, oftne a deal will fall through and they will offer the "spec" home at a special deal and it usually goes fast. I recommend getting a good realtor (Gee.. I'm available :-) ) and do some investigation, choose a few areas, and then wait for the next one to drop.. then buy it fast.
Now, second to that, there are almost new homes available as short sales and as quick sales.. some deals are there to be had as well. Again.. find a realtor...etc.. As for schools, that is something you will have to investigate. There are many sources for research... you can visit my site or many other like it and find good info. If you give me a call, we can talk more specifically. Good lukc - Happy House Hunting!!
