About San Antonio
San Antonio was the second fastest growing major metropolitan area in 2018 and is Forbes Magazine's #4 boomtown. The city is projected to add a million people over the next 20 years, closing in on three million people by 2040. This, in part, explains the rapid rise in home prices. From June of 2018 to June of 2019, the average home price shot up by 6.5 percent to $283,674 from $266,367.
San Antonio's Far West side is currently a hot spot for this growth, driven to a large extent by the number of major employers within a fifteen minute drive including Joint Base Lackland, Port San Antonio (Boeing, Lockheed Martin, etc.), USAA, Citibank, American Funds, and a concentration of data centers and call centers on nearby Highway 151.
San Antonio's Far West side is also a kid-friendly, excellent place to raise a family. Nearby outdoor activities include swimming, boating, and fishing at Medina Lake; hiking at Government Canyon; and cycling on San Antonio's 70-mile linear park system. Nearby Big Country Elementary School received an 8 of 10 rating and residents can also choose from three highly rated nearby tuition-free charter schools - IDEA College Prep, Great Hearts Western Hills, and Harmony Science Academy.
