My husband and I are thinking of moving down south and San Antonio sounds like the place for us nice and hooot!! We would appreciate any imput available from anyone.
We are looking for a friendly family oriented neighborhood being that we have 3 little ones 6, 3, and 4mos. We also would appreciate any information/recommendation on a good (preferably) catholic school. Suburbs are ok as long as they are not too far from the city, shopping and hospitals close by as well. We are thinking of driving down there soon to look around and decide where to live, so specific community/city names would be appreciated.
We would like a house with a big yard and are looking to spend around 300k give or take.

I guess the first question I'd ask is where will you or your husband be working? That will directly influence the neighborhoods I'd suggest to you. You will want to factor commute time into the mix. That being said, there should be plenty of housing choices for you at that price. The cost of living here is relatively low and the home prices are quite reasonable.

Red face Hi,

I would recommend you look at Boerne or New Braunsfels or Fair Oaks Ranch areas. San Antonio is heavily hispanic populated which makes our mexican food the best in Texas, the schools are over crowed and traffic is worse than you would think. Best wishes,

Try Alamo Ranch if you are looking at the Sea World side of town! All price points and plenty of yard for your kiddos!

Look at all those fine areas, but decide where you will be working and go from there. Also, it seems people have found it best to rent for a year and get a lay of the land and then buy.
The traffic can be bad: the price of growth, schools are filling faster than can be built: the price of growth, the best mexican food(TexMex really): the cause of outward growth in the middle and thighs.

My husband and I just moved from San Antonio to Colorado Springs and I am so homesick for my beautiful city. Anyway if you move to the far northwest side Huebner / Lockhill Selma area crime isn't bad, you'll be fairly close to the Medical center, new shopping areas like La Cantera, The Rim, Fiesta TX theme park, and Sea World. Antonion (Catholic) High School is close too, but don't know about Catholic school for young ones around that area. Warning - if you suffer from allergies to cedar or mold watch out - take your meds with you, this city is a breeding ground for them and San Antonio is very hot and humid, you will rarely need a jacket. Good Luck I hope you grow to love San Antonio.
