Really depends on the price point and the style of house you're looking for.

looking 175-225, garden home or a 2 story prob up to 2250 sf. I know the Presideo outside NW Military is a good one. Thoughts on Stone Oak?

but as far as re-sale value, are values increasing over time? I haven't been able to get a good feel from it as far as an investment is concerned. Any thoughts on the UTSA area?

Southtown, King William, Government Hill, Alta Vista, Monte Vista, Mahncke Park( my favorite). That will give you multiple price options, size and all are areas with young professionals, close to bars, downtown, fun stuff.

Where will you be working? The commute is important too.

For a young single guy I'd look at a condo/loft around the downtown area. Lots of young single professionals, walk or ride a bike to bars/restaurants, less space to clean, and no yard! There have been a lot of great pool parties at my loft on SoFlo.

This.

Being young and single, you probably will be best off living close to where you work.

Absolutely. Where do you go to more, work or the bar?
