We will be relocating to San Antonio in very near future. Does anybody have any opinions regarding Sequin vs New Braunfels for living? We would like a few acres in the Country for horses and hope to find it for around 200,000.00 or so. Home can be a fixer upper (hubby talented). Is it hard to find a place where they will allow horses that doesn't flood? I am very afraid of snakes. Will it be a big problem there? I have visions of walking into the barn and finding a rattler. Also, our Miniature pincher has always had a doggie door into our home. Is that a non-no there (snakes), and do I have to worry about her being bitten by them or do they shy away from housing areas?

I'd choose New Braunfels if you want a town on the verge of being a city. Seguin if you want a town that's not on the verge of being a city.

Seguin vs. New Braunfels

That's kinda like "Do i want to be thrown to the lions or just jump off a cliff?!"

New Braunfels is more German than Seguin...so if you like your german festivals, then NB. Plus they have Schlitterbahn so that should be the clencher there.

Regarding land, it's flatter in Seguin as opposed to NB which is rather hilly.

New Braunfels is white collar while Seguin is blue collar.

Some of my grandparents lived in Seguin. Very nice very quite little town. The one thing I would do your homework on if you want to buy out that way is to look into the Trans Texas corridor and see where the land you want to buy is in relation to it and is that why you are getting land so much cheaper...lots of freeway traffic with that one.

If you're going for rural (allow horses) in Texas, well, then there probably WILL be snakes. Sorry.

I don't like NB or Seguin so maybe I shouldn't answer... but I'm familiar with both so maybe I should.

NB is more monied. Seguin has had a bad rap in the past, nicknamed "Saigon" and such, but my mom lived there for a decade and was fine with it (although she did live on the edge of town, semi-rural).

NB, IMO, prettier.

Seguin, smaller, more poverty. Nice park though.

There are other "country" options for you in the SA area... like Bulverde, Canyon Lake, Spring Branch, Blanco, all north... I am sure there are some South too but I don't know names of areas off the top of my head. All depends on how close to SA you want/ need to be and what you're price range is.

One thing for sure though, it's always something.. snakes, scorpions in the country.... stray dogs in the city. lol!
