I'm not a big fan of SA, mostly because of the hot weather and awful drivers, but I think this is probably the best place for me to be as far as stability for the near future. Which translates to it sucks, but I'm sucking it up because it could be worse.

The ranking proves San Antonio still remains competitive with other cities. This national exposure along with continued job growth will make our city more attractive to large companies. We have plenty of houses in inventory now given the current market situation. But we still remain a "great" investment if you are looking for affordable housing. I heard that Mexican investors are still very interested in our SA market. The recent peso devaluation might slow this down. But 2009 looks to be a better year for the housing market. With BAMC relocatees coming into SA and the possible BioLab we could see another influx of qualified work personnel.

Anywhere there is job GROWTH will be a great place to be...and SA continues to be one of the few places in the nation with secure job growth.

Between the military and the medical communities, SA has two MAJOR sectors that will continue to be required and employeed regardless of the downturns in other areas...both help make our wonderful city a sound investment opportunity. Thanks for posting!!
