Need to find a place to live near Fort Sam Houston ? (San Antonio, TX)

Asked by kokkalisrr, San Antonio, TX Sun Jul 21, 2013

My fiance is moving to San Antonio to be nearby while I go to school on base. Anyone have suggestions? I don't have my car readily available to drive around and search visually for a nice apartment, and I am also very busy during the week. If I could get some good suggestions on where to start I could make time though. Anyone have ideas? We need to find a place ASAP. Thank you for your help.

Is there any way I can talk you into taking advantage of what will probably be the best buyer's market we may ever see in our lifetimes?

The market is rapidly turning into a seller's market
Interest rates are WAY DOWN, but they are headed up

If you buy a home now:

* You will get more for your money - Rentals never stack up to homes you can buy for the same payment

* Tax Write-off - You can write off the interest you pay on your mortgage, you can't do that with rent

* Build Equity in the home - Each time you make a payment, you are that much closer to owning it!

* Gain Appreciation - Homes tend to go up in value... the home is worth more than you bought it for!

If you rent a home: You get nothing!

Are you at all interested in a rental home? There are 5 homes for rent within a 1 mile radius of Ft. Sam. They range in price from $475 - $1000 per month. If you would like to view these properties (and any others!) you can go to and view listings that fit your criteria. You can also set up listing alerts that will let you know if something comes available.
Good luck!

Good afternoon!

There are several new apartment complexes along the Broadway corridor available to rent now near The Pearl Brewery. A few options include:

1800 Broadway
1221 Broadway
The Can Plant

I offer up these three due to their proximity to The Pearl, which features several restaurants, bars, access to the San Antonio river (jogging, cycling, walking) and all are just minutes away from Ft. Sam Houston.

Here's some more information about The Pearl:

Best of luck in your search!
