Realtors are not a good source for CRIME information;
If we comment on CRIME, RACE, RELIGION, etc. we can be accused of "STEERING", which can cost us our license.

GOOGLE or contact your local police. ... more

J Pacheco

Hello. I am 22 years retired Air Force and have lived in San Antonio for 17 years now. There are lots of areas near Ft Sam that are very nice. It all depends how much you want to spend and what you are looking for in a home. If you are buying or renting and how long you depend on being here. I know being in the military you don't always know how long you are going to be here, but sometimes they do give you some idea of a tour time.

If you would like to give me a call or an email, I would be happy to help you find a home. I have been a Realtor since I retired 8 years ago and have helped numerous military personell transition to San Antonio.

Welcome to SA!

Actually 93 Autumn Pass accepted a contract with another buyer this week.
I have shown several condos in The Villas of Westlake and talked with maintenance employees who seemed friendly and kept busy. There is a security gate that remained open every time I visited. Non of my buyers purchased here; they thought the HOA fees were very high.

Your best bet is to contact the local police or sherrif's office for the crime reports for the area. Also do a search of crime reports in surrounding areas for comparison. Most of the time, depending on the municipality, you can get all of that information on line.
Good luck with that.

The reason most people seek this type of transaction is because they are not eligible from a mortgage from a traditional lender. Any work around to side step the mortgage underwriting guidelines shifts the risk from the lender to your side of the ledger, greatly increasing the odds of disaster. The guidelines are actually fairly liberal despite what most people believe. I have linked below some info on rent to own, but there are several other topics on my blog that may protect you. I hope my observations keep you away from harm, good luck. ... more

Shawn, every once in a while, you can find a pretty good deal on a foreclosed property, but most are not for everyone. Many are in very bad shape, and you can often make a better deal on a resale.

You can contact me with no obligation FMI, and I'll help you get oriented to the possibilities in the market.
