Josh,

I live in the area so I drive through twice a day (plus all the trips through there in the course of business). It doesn't matter what day you head through its bad - weekend actually might be worse, because I think the lights are timed differently.

I think it will help alleviate the bottleneck from Callaghan to Ingram during rush hour and hopefully ease the drive from southbound Bandera in the mornings. I'm going to hate the day when it opens, because it will be mass confusion. It will probably take a few weeks to get it figured out. I can only imagine the anger Ancira had over the plans. They just built the new Bill Miller's BBQ there and the Luby's closed down (although I now see signs for Zorro's Buffet - coming soon, be interesting to see what that is). I think the Schlotzky's there won't last long (I never see much traffic through there). It will definitely be interesting to watch how it all shapes up.

Matt

The Bradley,

Please forgive Josh and I for doing what agents do best...compare notes over our city. We all have our opinions. Of course, when we talk about congestion and traffic as a nightmare, it doesn't compare to what NYC or the East Coast in general is about, so don't let it scare you. San Antonio traffic is still preferable to Philadelphia or Los Angeles traffic, but in our city it is an issue we talk a lot about. The good news is that Texas is very fond of roadworks and there are constant improvements going on (as opposed to Philadelphia that never seems to do much in the way of new construction), so although there are inconveniences in different part of the city's road system, they are typically the result of trying to solve the problem.

Hey there Matt,

Yes, I can't wait either. I've been going nuts w/ that intersection and can't wait til it's fixed. I've got some family that live around that area and it seems to be a pain to drive into that mess on a Saturday (like today!! I've never seen 410 and Bandera at a standstill like it was today. I know they shut down 410 to put up a HUGE section of the interchange today, but still.. WOW..).

How well do you think it's going to do even though it still will exit off into stop lights. I wonder if it's still going to back up 410 quite a bit. I know Ancira was not happy about that interchange going in.

Josh,

I just wanted to comment on your mention of the 410/Bandera exchange.

I can't wait until that's complete. I'm hoping it will help in that area (I commute through it everyday). On the way home we usually get off at Evers (now Callaghan, since Evers is closed) and use the back roads. Until the fix that last bit of the interchange and open it up, getting off at Bandera is a nightmare (even more so now that Evers is closed).

How are things in New York?

That is a great home in a great location.

Address is 6011 Forest Ridge. That area off of Bandera road between Huebner and Wurzbach has a great neighborhood feel to it. There are homes around that Forest Oaks area ranging from $89k to $225k with most of them averaging about 30 years of age. The area is a great area and I think right now it's being slightly affected by the 410 ramp that is being constructed way up Bandera road. It's actually a pretty interesting design, but I'm sure it will help increase the flow of traffic at that Bandera/410 bottle neck in the long run. Also, Bandera road is full of stop-lights throughout so it's not the favored of roads to get between outer loop 1604 and inner loop 410. Matt is correct as there is only 11 photos uploaded into the MLS and that particular agent does not have a virtual tour listed. This could be either smart marketing or lazy marketing. Perhaps since you are still up in NYC, you may want your Realtor to start sending you video tours of homes that have caught your eye.

If so, we do that for our out-of-state transfers.

God bless,

Josh

The Bradleys,

I have located the listing in our MLS system and there are 11 photos of the property. Send me an email and I will send over the MLS listing (I couldn't find any general internet info for it, otherwise I would have just provided a link to it). This home isn't too far from my home, so if you need additional photos, let me know and I'll take a look and see if I can set up an preview of it, so I can grab a few more.

Hope this helps.

Matt
