If you like I can send you a list of Active homes as well as homes that have sold in the Big Springs area in the last 6 months. I will provide you with a Compared Market Analysis (CMA) and give you an idea what the homes in Big Springs are listing for and more important what they are selling for. You can email me at crivera@sell-satx.com

As a former resident of Big Springs, I can attest to the appeal of this community (we only moved because we outgrew our home). You are surrounded by wonderful schools (I have had 3 children through Canyon Ridge, Barbara Bush Middle School, and Reagan High School), easy access to highways, airport, retail, dining, and entertainment. Although our local market has been impacted by the relocation of AT&T executives to Dallas, along with the recession, we are starting to see some of the inventory selling, and prices stabilizing. As such, I believe that the homes currently listed in Big Springs are reflective of the market, and the area will continue to be popular with buyers. In addition, as others have mentioned, the traffic in Stone Oak is not great. One of the biggest selling points for Big Springs is that it's located right off of 281, so you do not have to spend additional time commuting through Stone Oak like you would in other neighborhoods. Good luck with your move!

My best friend just moved into Big Springs in October and he loves it. Seems to be a pretty tight knit community with a lot of kids, my friend has three. Has a nice nature walking trail, basketball courts, tennis courts and nice swimming pool. Home values in the Stone Oak area have taken a hit due to the recession and the big AT&T move that put many homes on the market that have listed or sold for below market due to the relocation package given to the sellers. It is picking back up though but still a buyers market there. The schools are some of the best in the city and overall a great area for shopping, dining and entertainment. I would say one of the best buys in the Stone Oak area in the high $200,00's to Low $300,00 and would highly recommend looking there as you can get a great deal right now.
Contact me if you need anything.

Regards,

MJ,

The Big Springs area is a beautiful area (in my opinion). The whole area up there in general is scenic (not just Big Springs). Here's the biggest drawback - traffic. Although if you live anywhere near 95 in Boston, I'm sure it will seem like a joke to you. The Stone Oak area of San Antonio (which is the general term for that area) is well know for traffic snarls as the growth of the area wasn't matched with transportation needs. There are some "fixes" coming, but as with any public works project you never know a) if they'll solve the problem and b) when they'll be finished. Here's some articles I've written about those:

Big Springs is part of the North East ISD, which is a highly regarded school district here in town. You can get more specific info on individual schools within the district at:

http://www.greatschools.net/schools.page?district=745&state=TX

If you're interested in market reports for the area, my site provides them (use zip code 78258) - this will give you an idea of current trends in the area.
http://www.rerockstar.com/ (just look at the bottom middle pane - "FREE MARKET REPORTS")
If you want help with that, just send me an email and I can email one direct to you.

Hope that helps and if you have any questions, feel free to let me know.
