It is in zip 78239 in the 'Royal Ridge' area just South of the Randolph Blvd and O'Connor Intersection. Is this a good area? It doesn't seem far from windcrest which I've heard bad things about. Also, rent is 1,200 a month for a bit over 1600 sq feet, it is a 3br 2 bath. Does this sound close to market rate? Thanks!!!

I think you can do better somewhere else, unless it's an especially convenient location to your job.

I agree with the MOM above. You should be able to find a bit better location. Of course it depends on the age and condition of the house too. Good luck to you!

Actually Royal Ridge is a pretty nice area. The community was built in two parts one in the 70's/80's and then about 10 years ago. It's a solid middle class area. The elementary school there was built in the last 10 years as well.
I'm not sure why the other two posters don't like the area, and I'm betting they don't either.

For me it was the ratings of the schools in the area, and the number of sex offenders who lived in that zip code.

The middle schools and high school in that area are some of the worst in NEISD, but that particular neighborhood is not bad. The number of sex offenders per capita isn't among the best, but it certainly isn't the worst. 78212 has less people but a lot more sex offenders than 78239. San Antonio has several zip codes with over 100 sex offenders; 78239 has 67.
