My wife and I were just in San Antonio and were looking for areas to possibly move to. One area that seemed nice was to the west of the city on Potranco, a little west of the 1604. Another was in the northeast in the Schertz area just off the 35. Does anyone have an opinion on which area is better? The Alamo Ranch and Indian Springs areas were also nice, but were a little out of our price range. Are there also any plans to build new stores and restaurants near that area off Potranco? Thank you for any opinions or info you may have.

I live about a mile from Potranco (outside Loop 1604). Restaurants are coming, a Chili's behind Bill Millers. There should be more in this same area and across in the HEB area. Up Loop 1604 around Culebra there will be more in the Alamo Ranch area (there will be about 100 stores in 2008 at corner of Culebra and Loop 1604). Most new homes in the Potranco area start in the 130's now. You might try preowned homes that can be found in the low 100's and up.

I'll answer your Potranco question first.

Pontranco is slated for massive retail within the next year.

Read these two threads for a better understanding.

Movie Theater on 151/Wiseman? Alamo Ranch Development

The Schertz area is also very nice. Seem a large surge in population the last few years. The Forum is at 1604/35 and then there's Rolling Oaks Mall a couple of miles to the west of Schertz and a couple of miles north of The Forum. Also, a 1 million sq. ft. retail center will be bilt across 35 from The Forum. It will be called The Fountains at Live Oak. The Fountains of Live Oak will include restaurants, retail stores and services, plus a 600-unit apartment complex.

In Alamo Ranch, currently prices range form $130K-$300+K. The biggest builders are DR Horton ($130K-$300K) and Pulte ($170K-$300+K). BTW, the Pulte homes are in four separate communities (mostly gated). Pulte Del Webb is also located in this area. There are several other builders in this area that will have up to 15,000 homes on 3,100 acres.

Hey 210 from what I know of this area I bet the houses at the Rim and Cantera are going to start out high than the posters price range.

Thank you for all the info, I appreciate it. We didn't actually have time to go to Alamo Ranch but heard nice things. We did go to Indian Springs. I liked a couple of the Pulte Homes and a couple of The Wilshire Homes. The floorpans were pretty nice. The price sheet we got from Wilshire had some homes in the high $100,000 range. The rest went into the $200,000. It seemed like this north central area was the priciest from the short time we were in town. I don't know if this is true or not though.

From just past I10 on the west side to just past 281 on the East side is going to be pricey ( moreso than west or east of that area. Its true. Also the further you go out in that area it gets pricey also cause of the hill country and everyone wants to be there. You might try the NE side of things and look into Schertz, Ciblo and those areas. Always been an area that has not been as expensive along with the NW side also

That actually isn't the pricest area of the city. There's tons of areas in the 500-600 range as well as places like The Dominion, Elm Creek, Shavano Park, Greystone, Terrell Hills, Alamo Heights and Olmos Park. Homes their range from just under 1 million to 5 million on average.
