Also, on the far southside, the development of the Toyota Plant and a new Texas A&M San Antonio campus has driven growth in that area also. ... more

Wow. This is one of the tougher questions to answer in this forum! Like recommending a doctor, each person's requirements and expectations are different.
There are definitely day care centers that pick up kids from schools in that area. KinderCare, Kids 'R' Kids and Apple Tree Day School are 3 of the larger centers in the area, but there may be smaller ones that can pick up your kids.
I hope that helps, but call if I can help you with this.
Good luck!

I am sure they can find something, however what is their credit score and what can they do to fix it. They may be able to get their score up enough to buy by December. Their are some lenders that will do 600 credit score and a few that will do 580. Have them call me and we can see what is the best way to go for them.

Depend on what you consider diversity. For High Schools, Churchill, Macarthur & Clark are excellent. The elementary & junior schols that feed into them are excellent as well. Many of the areas of the city have diversity. It might be more dependent upon you price range and then it coud be narrowed down by area or vice-versa. Call or email me and I'd be happy to assist you. ... more

Depend on the repairs.
FHA has a rehab loan.... it is called a '203K loan'.... it is a more expensive loan than a regular '203b' FHA purchase loan. Fees & Rate is higher.

But.... if the type of repairs are allowed to be escrowed.... there is a better option. Not all lenders offer this option.
Basically... it is allowable for some repairs to be escrowed into the loan. So the repair amount is added to the loan and that money is held at the title company after closing.... to be dispersed to a contractor on the completion of the work.

These are done on a case by case basis.
Let me know if you would like to work thru a scenario.... I have done these.... Pretty straight forward deal.

Rav, that's a tough one. I do know of some property on 1604 just west of 10, frontage to 1604, located between 10 & Braun. You may want to take a drive.

I know of a listing in Bandera but it requires finish out. How many parking spaces do you need? Do they have a strong leasing history????
