I grew up in Colonies North by Wurzbach & IH-10! It looks the same now as it did 30 years ago (minus all of the growth, when we first moved there were cow pastures on Wurzbach!)

Definitely not an expensive neighborhood, and yet I prefer it to just about any I have seen in San Antonio. Big yards, old trees, people just naturally keep up appearances. Cannot tell you why, maybe just a sense of community...who knows. Occasionally there are a few houses that need a coat of paint, or weeding, or a good lawn mowing.

So damn what!?

I spent three years in Iraq supporting our soldiers fighting for our FREEDOMS!!!! HOA's are direct insult to the American dream that if you OWN a piece of property, you can do whatever the hell you want to on that property as long as it does not hurt someone else.

You wanna know what drove down home prices? Ask Barney Frank a& Bill Clinton who pushed Fannie & Freddie into giving people who had no discernible signs of income hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy houses in nice neighborhoods...then they obviously didn't have the means to keep up the maintenance on those houses!

We looked at a home in The Hills of SO and didn't find the houses shabby at all. As a matter of fact, the neighborhood looked like a well kept middle-class neighborhood.

You get a mixed bag. I like the neighborhood I am in because it is tucked behind a .7 mile access road so not many people even know we are here. You get the occasional knucklehead who doesn't understand the meaning behind not leaving your dogs out all damn night and day...
