Are there suburbs or smaller cities in Texas that are affordable, safe, less crowded but still within a 1-hour drive to the San Antonio Airport (the closer to airport the better)? Any direction- N E S W

I work remotely so don't care about living on the outskirts of town, but it seems like San Antonio proper is both too big and expensive.

I'm in Corpus Christi now and I like the size of it and the affordable housing. I don't like the crappy airport here. I'm just looking for a place ( hopefully still in Texas) that is within 1 hour drive to a major airport and still has affordable housing under $250K (no condos).

For reference I just bought a 3 bedroom 2 bath 2 car garage 1050 SF home for $167K in Corpus Christi. I'm looking to buy something similar but within an hours drive to major airport - looking for ideas. Thank you.

I honestly don’t think you’ll find anything “safe and affordable” without needing a complete gut job within an hours drive of SA in that price range. Below 200k was about 7-10 years ago…before I moved from SA.

An hour from the airport, safe, affordable and under $250K? Good luck but you may find some around $250K...just not much lower if it happens....that opportunity passed by several years ago.

There are homes in nearly all the towns I just mentioned that fit the bill.... And no, they don't need gut jobs...

Hondo and Castroville are getting pricey these days. Not sure about the others you listed.
