If you are looking for property in Texas take a look at San Antonios five sought after neighborhoods. For instance Alamo Heights is a tranquil setting offering residents high-end gift shops and quaint vintage boutiques. San Antonio prides itself on being a large city with a small-town feel. From downtown bungalows to luxury estates, there’s a home and neighborhood for any lifestyle. The average cost of a home in San Antonio, according to real estate reports, is around $ 140,000, and buys around 3,000 square feet with a four bedroom home that has 2.5 baths.

On average Alamo Heights homes cost about half a million dollars, with residents paying for the name, the school district and a small-feel community in the middle of a large city. This city has been turned into a shrine of sorts and is a quiet place to relax. The Alameda is the first formal affiliate of the Smithsonian outside of Washington, D.C. It is found near Market Square, which presents live music over weekends. It’s a great place to experience the city’s culture through music and food.

The Stone Oak which is the fastest growing section of the city. Middle and high income families which send their children to attractive public schools in the northeast district have bought rows of cookie-cutter style homes. Huge malls anchored by popular stores are surrounded by trendy bars and health and beauty salons. Young members of the San Antonio Spurs can be spotted often at the pubs and stores. An average home in Stone Oaks costs around $ 350,000 and residents forgo huge lawns for more square footage.

King William has attracted young professionals looking for something other than a ranch for decades. Buyers are purchasing bungalows and run down homes built in the late 1800s and are restoring them to their original glory. The nearby public schools have dramatically improved and include dual-language curriculums. King William homes were once purchased at bargain prices, but those days are long gone. Home values have soared and the median cost of a home is about $ 650,000.

For the young professional families that can no longer afford King William have chosen Mahncke Park and have started refurbishing the run down homes with wraparound porches.

Then there is Helotes which is home to acres of land where children can be seen trotting on their horses.
