June 2014

Relocating to San Antonio from Pensacola, Florida. It is time for a change and a decent job now that I have finished graduate school and have my Masters and other forms of graduate education. I am 53 young with no small children. Can you tell me what area of the city is safe for an single adult that so wants peace of mind when I come home. My masters is in Human Services (Marriage and Family) and a second in Pastoral Counseling. I am an ordained minister and will try to get a job as a Chaplain. I have taught high school in the past, but now I just substitute teach to stay involved with education. My son might move there as well, but get his own place. He is 27 and a mechanic. We are looking for a good place with art, museums, parks, etc. The cost of housing in Florida is costly and I am hoping this is not the case in San Antonio. I hope to be moving in the next week or two. Any suggestions? Thank you and blessings.

I would probably look at a townhouse or condo in the north central area inside loop 410. Alamo heights, an independent city or, San Antonio in the general vicinity would work.

What is costly for you? Do you want to live somewhere suburban or urban? To be very close to museums and art you would need to be downtown. That is pricey. But we are relatively small and you can get downtown in about 20 mi nutes from most places in the city. Based on your career path I would start looking in the Medical Center. Search for 78229 and 78240 online at websites like forrent.com. If you find one you like ask us and we can tell you if there are any safety concerns. That area can be hit or miss as Catholic Charities settles many of their refugees in that area making it prime Section 8 housing.

And just out of curiosity what made you choose San Antonio with no idea about the area or what exactly you want to do? A lot of posters will recommend securing a job in San Antonio before relocating.
