I have been so interested in the information everyone so kindly provides about the different areas in and around San Antonio for those of us who have decided to make San Antonio our new home. Could some of you provide me with the names and possibly the builders of the different subdivisions in the Potranco and 1604 area? We were looking at Live Oak, but are open to other options. We are younger retired ( at least I am the younger) so not looking to spend over $175,000 or there abouts. Is that reasonable? I have to do most of my research on line until we get back to TX in a couple of months. Thanks again for all the beneficial info! It will make the move smoother.

You can definately find things on this end of town (Potranco/1604) under $175K, depending on the size/amenities you're looking for. Trophy Ridge (Medallion is the builder) has some smaller homes in that range (and they are inside 1604 which is nice!), DR Horton has Amhurst, KB Home has Sundance (2 different series), Standard Pacific is building in Bella Vista and there's smaller homes in the price range there. Several others also, just depends on whatcha want!

$175K will do you fine in this area as long as you're not looking for something super huge or full of upgrades.
Better get in quick, though, as things are appreciating at a pretty rapid rate.

You can call any Real Estate agent to help you look for a New house in San Antonio, if you are from out of town is the best way cause they know the city and the builders salespeople share their comission with the agent, so their service is free for you

check out the thread of "potranco and 1604" for a mountain load of information of the area.
i think for the quality you get for your money you should be looking at Medallion's Trophey Ridge. They make an excellent home and the neighborhood is great

We bought in an older area of Westcreek......home is 20 yrs old, less than 175k. We wanted a home that was established w/ mature trees. We are VERY happy w/ the neighborhood. There are lots of homes in Westcreek undr 175k. Go to realtor.com and put in zipcode 78253. Good luck

We live in Stonecreek (between Marbach and Potranco - inside Loop 1604) and are really happy with the neighborhood. The builder is Armadillo homes and we've been really impressed with the quality of the homes - good bang for your buck! It's a new development so there is still lots of building going on but there are a few homes up for sale/rent in the section that was first developed and is more established. We border a huge greenspace out back and it is so quiet - like being in the country. Lots of trees and greenery. If that's your type of thing - it might be a good neighborhood for you. We are renting for the time being but are seriously considering buying in this neighborhood when we're ready. Oh, and Trophy Ridge is also quite nice, too. It's just off Potranco behind the HEB - very convenient to lots of shopping if you like to walk to get your groceries etc.

Good luck with your search! San Antonio has so many choices - you're sure to find the right fit!
