Default Converse??

My wife and I are moving to SA from Nebraska with our 2 month old daughter. We are looking for housing. What do you think about the Converse area? What areas would you recommend in the 150k-170k range?

Thanks!

I can't answer your question about Converse but I am from NE and moved here last January. We love it here! Welcome to the area!

I heard that you guys had some school closings, bad roads, etc...
I can't say I miss the snow, I love when my friends/family call from NE and I can tell them it is 70-80 degrees and sunny here!
Can I ask, what part of NE you are from?

Me too! (well I grew up in a small town about an hour sw of Lincoln but have lived in Lincoln for a big portion of my adult life)
We were just back there last week, they have really done some changes to 48 & O street! Almost didn't recognize it. Went and saw National Treasure down at SouthPointe and ate at Old Chicago. They don't have an OC down here so my husband was jonesing for their pizza!

I would think you would want to live close to where you work at. Converse is a pretty nice area. You can find some shopping areas nearby which have just been built (walmart). Also a lot of little shops and of course the Forum is right down the road (on IH 35). Judson High School is right there in Converse and some other schools. There are a lot of choices in that area as far as 150-170k houses. I think most of the movement is going towards Schertz, Cibilo which is a couple of miles further down FM 78 (which is the road that runs right through Converse). Again it would be important to know where you plan on working.

I agree, I have heard good things about the Shertz, Cibolo area.
We are over on the far NW side so not really familiar with that area of the city.

I think with your price range, you can afford anything in my small town.
Edit: I'm in Converse.

Parts of Converse are nice. You can easily find housing in your price range, but that price range can take you many other places in San Antonio as well. Will you be working in or near Converse? If not, you may want to focus your search closer to where you will be working - don't forget that you will need to factor in traffic... much more traffic here than Lincoln (except maybe right before or right after an - ugh! - Husker game.) :-)

My husband and I moved back here in August after about 7 years in Omaha. We are so happy to be here. I have never once wistfully thought of the snow and ice. When my mom calls and tells me the high is going to be 6 degrees or they just got another 2 inches of snow, I sadly tell her that our high is only going to be in the mid-70s.

If you are considering any other areas in San Antonio, you may want to make a new post since there are people here that are familiar with the various areas - they might be more likely to read/respond to a post about their area of expertise.

Good luck and an early welcome.
