Hy,
Next summer i am moving from EU to San antonio. So i was wondering if you can tell me anything about living there. I have 2 small kids- so i was thinking to buy house with at least 4 bedrooms becouse i have 3 more grown up kids but they are staying in europe. so can you tell me with how much money per month i can live there. (bills, taxes, food and stuff...)
Is 400,000 $ enough for decent 4 bedroom house in some nice neighborhood.
My monthly expenses here in EU are around 15,000 euros (around 25,000$) is that enough for family of 4 (without house rent- becouse i plan to buy house in cash)
appreciate every answer
thnx

Yes, that's plenty of money for a decent house and expenses. Enjoy.

You'll do extremely well here. Go to Realtor.com and look for San Antonio properties in that price range. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how much you'll get in the price range.

Also MySA.com has a real estate section with all the local listings that are in the MLS. Don't worry about location in town ...just search by price.

Welcome to San Antonio!

Actually, you might find it a bit difficult to spend that much on living expenses if you're excluding the mortgage. The median household income in San Antonio is $36,214 according to Wikipedia, which means you would be spending 8.3 times as much as the median.

You'll probably have fun trying! Good luck and I hope you enjoy San Antonio as much as the rest of us!

Welcome and thanks for boosting our local economy.

Yep, a little fishy.

On another note, 15,000 euros is more like $19,250 at today's exchange rate.

Hy, thanx for answers. Actually my husband and I are retireing ( i don't know is that spelled correctly)- anyway. We are not really old (lol) but we have enough money to stop working so we decided to enjoy the rest of our lives and our grown up kids are now running our company. So we adopted 2 boys and we are planning to live now aroung the world. We are not sure where to live in usa. I looked little for houses in vermont and san antonio and i think that we can buy better house in SA than in VT. So thats the reason why i wrote on both pages. So what do you think. We are probably not gonna live there for ever. Maybe 4-5 years until kids start school and than we are planning to move back to EU. And if we like it maybe we'll stay.
Thanx.
