my husband is getting out of the military in 2 weeks and we're looking to move to san antonio are there any little surrounding cities that are cheeper to live in and still safe to raise a baby in? my husband and i are both going to be going to school so we're going to be relying mostly on part time jobs and college loans... needless to say we're going to be pretty broke, and im noticing that most bedroom apts are around 900/month.... that's way outside our price range...any info is helpful ive only been to san antonio once so i really have no idea what im getting into here...

How far out of SA do you want to live, and where will you be going to school? Depending on where you are used to living SA might seem a little different in the respect that there are not a lot of suburbs, like Los Angeles or New York. Usually, if you live in SA you actually live in SA or one of its "suburbs" that actually exist within the city limits (Alamo Heights, Balcones Heights), most suburbs here are 20+ miles away. In all honesty, unless you want to drive 30-45 min, your best and cheapest bet would be to live in San Antonio.

Anyway, $900 a month seems a little steep, but I guess that depends on how many bedrooms. My wife and I pay $700 for a very nice 1 bedroom. I'm sure most 2 BR's run in the $700-750 range.

As noted, much will decide on where you locate and the amenities offered. What college will you be attending? That will do a lot towards depending on what area of town you might want to consider. Some outstanding outlying cities, but without knowing where you'll be going to classes, it'd be foolish to recommend someplace that's a 40-50 mile trek!

There are some nice newer apartments that you can get adjusted monthly rates based on your income. You gotta ask about that when you check out apartments. My son lived in 1 w/his wife & baby (2 bedroom). They got a couple hundred $ break based on income. And those apartments were nice.
