I agree with Gregory, but I would also add that it really also depends on your personality. I have had many buyers lately not find exactly what they are looking for in the preowned market and they have decided to build. Now, I will say that it is very difficult to build a home when you are not here, but I have had clients take a vacation here and we did some shopping in the new home construction as they new they were particular and they found exactly what they were looking for at the time. I was here through the building process and took numerous pictures and made sure it went smoothly. However, this is not for everyone. But I wanted to make sure you knew it was possible and it does take some time so you must take that into consideration if you want to build.
Additionally, I have had 4 children go through the school district here and I have found that whether you have children or not, schools do matter for resale purposes, so please keep these in mind. Also, access to highways in San Antonio are very important. I would be happy to send you maps and a welcome package if you are interested.
If there is anything I can do to help make your transition easier, pleaes let mek now. I was in the Air Force for 22 years and I know what it is like to move to a new location. Transitions are difficult, but they can be made a whole lot easier and that is my job.
I am looking forward to welcoming you to San Antonio.
