Howdy everyone!

Recently accepted a job located in Northern San Antonio and would like to begin to research homes, neighborhoods, etc. We are a 30 yr old couple (DINKS). We currently live in the heights area of Houston and would like to find a similar area in San Antonio but have NO idea where to begin!

We would like an area that's not extremely conservative, but not a hippie hideout! Progressive areas with homes with a 200k-300k range is ideal.

Any insight is greatly appreciated!!

Terrell heights sounds perfect for you.

Thanks smu!

I read on other sites that Alamo Heights is also another location that we should consider?

Job is located north san antonio, but I am not a fan of suburban living as its just not who we are. Any other advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

Alamo heights is a tad more conservative, than Terrell heights, it's also more expensive. They are both in the same zipcode but Terrell heights is in the city of San Antonio.

That's what i was afraid of, ending up in a conservative area of San Antonio. How's Palladium, sp?.... i was told by a friend that lives in Austin that thats something we should look into.

Never heard of an area called palladium in San Antonio, except for a garish movie theater way out in suburbia. The conservatism in alamo heights btw isn't the tea party style. They are fisically conservative, but socially more moderate.

Also, if you want urban and not conservative, look into Southtown and Lavaca.

I think thats the area they told us to look at... its over by 1604 and 10... not somewhere I would like to live but will look at them.

Another (yes another) quality I would like is a home in an area that easy to sell. My new employer tells me I won't be in San Antonio for 2-4 years! So resale value is important to us.

Thanks BoerneMan for the advice!

If you're only going to be here a couple of years, maybe it would make more sense to rent.

The areas outside of 1604 from 151 to IH 35 are going to be the most tea party conservative part of town. For the most part there is going to be better resale inside 410, just because of the growth further out keeps prices down on newer second owner homes. Why buy a 5-10 year old home when you can have a brand new one, mentality.
