Your city-taxes will be higher if you live in the city limit. In regards to payment estimation, you can go ahead and discount a 20% down payment. A 20% down payment is typically only required if you are acquiring the home as an investment property, or a second residence (vacation home,etc.). If you get an FHA (Federal Housing Administration) loan, you need 3.5% down, if you are going to get a conventional loan, plan on around 5%.

I think the best bang for your buck is going to be in the Live Oak area. I live off Topperwein road, and there is an autism treatment center right off loop 1604. Alternatively, if you head down 1604 south, towards St. Hedwig / La Vernia, you can find some nice land tracts.

Just wondering if you made your move yet? My husband and I have been in Wisconsin for the past 4 years and had our hearts set on South Carolina too but I was a little weary concerning unemployment and cost of living so I did further research and found San Antonio to be a pretty nice fit. I'm from South Florida so I'm actually looking forward to the heat but a little nervous about the electric bill lol

New Braunfels, Cibolo area both come to mind. We're currently looking along the same lines, and you'll find prices in the $250-400k range for a nice place with one-three acres.
