NOTE: For all new members, please familiarize yourselves with the City Data Terms of Service, commonly referred to as the ToS. If you're new to the San Antonio area or the San Antonio forum on City-Data, please take a few minutes to read through the helpful information below as the questions you have may have already been answered.

NOTE: When asking questions about a location, give as much detail as you can, so we can zero in on the info you need. If house hunting, what is your price level or rental amount. How many BR's, Baths, square feet, lot size, etc, do you need? Pets? SFH, TH, Condo, mobile home? In-town, rural, college town, military town, mountains? Schools for children? Gated community, golf course community, active senior community? Do you need to stable a horse? Is there an RV or boat trailer to consider? The more you tell us, the sooner our regular posters can reply with specificity. Same for any other criteria you have. Please avoid open-ended requests like "I'm moving to your city, tell me EVERYTHING I need to know."

NOTE: To all new real estate agents and other businesses -- we welcome your valuable input and participation as members of our forum. Since you're new to the forum, please familiarize yourself with this helpful City Data real estate and business information and the City Data rules that apply. See Terms of Service, Real Estate Agents and other businesses

NOTE: This index is limited to general San Antonio metro links. However, there are tons of previous threads that focus on specific counties, cities, towns or areas within the San Antonio metro with questions that have already been answered filled with info you may be looking for. The best way to find this specific information is to use the Advanced version of our Search tool in the menu bar at the top of forums... select Search, select Advanced Search, include Key Word to search, select Sort By Last Date & select San Antonio as forum to search. See About-Forum and FAQ for more useful tips!
