Despite the houses up for sale, there really is good news when it comes to San Antonio housing. With the constant influx of military and a recent report of 1,000 jobs being brought to San Antonio by USAA, lots of houses will be bought and sold soon in S.A.
But there is even more good news, if you can believe it. According to Builder Magazine, San Antonio is the fourth healthiest housing market in the U.S.
With housing prices declining just 1.8 % last year (which is huge compared to other areas) and the average house costing $50K less than a similar house in other markets, San Antonio is still a great market for buyers and investors.
Incredibly, all of the top five cities on the list were in Texas. Houston ranked 1st, Austin 2nd and Ft. Worth third. Dallas came in fifth after San Antonio.
