We will know this week, but my husband may be getting orders to the area. I have been looking for rentals since we are not in a position to buy right now. I have a few questions.

1. What areas are good to avoid?
2. Are there rental companies that should be avoided?
3. Does anyone specialize in rural area rentals?

We have a very large family and my kids need room to run. Living in a subdivision with a tiny yard does not work for our family. We've tried that and we were all miserable so the bigger the better. We need at least an acre. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Please take a look at the sticky that new2sa provided. It's located at the top of the SA page. It'll answer a lot of the questions that you may have. Good luck.

Some of the historic neighborhoods are great. if you want a large yard your going to have to go for older housing. The new neighborhoods are very nice but most lots are just that....lots. Most are not even 1/4 of an acre. try something near a park with good shopping nearby. OP Schnabel park area is nice (camino Bandera). They have a saturday night at the movies at the park which is nice. The grocery store is nearby and you are within 10-15 minutes of sea world and fiesta texas. It also depends what base your husband will be at......
