Living in the Lone Star state brings back good memories. Are you currently searching out the best apartments in San Antonio, Texas? There is literally no way to get to know the city well in fast forward mode. I’m not saying you can’t pick a good apartment and skip the locator service or real estate agent. After all, you want to get to know the city regardless. It could be argued though that they can help show you around and fill you in as locals.
Since I lived in Texas, 25 miles from San Antonio, for years, I could even help you navigate the city better if you were new to the area. San Antonio is a super sized city of course, and not only that, but the various areas of the city are so different from one another. There is a unifying feel though, even to the outlying rural areas that are still considered part of SA. Familiarizing yourself with the major roads and highways and how they loop in San Antonio is important, and you should also get familiar with major landmarks for navufational purposes.
Certain parts of San Antonio are easier to navigate, but then you get into the major parts of the city, which can be confusing. You’re going to want to know these things as you pick an apartment. In other words, you don’t have to live right in the city. But make no mistake about it, the traffic can still be heavy at times, even in the outlying areas. Plus, those back roads in some places can be a bit scary with traffic allowed to drive so fast. That is Texas for you though.
Living in San Antonio is an especially good choice out of all the cities. I lived in Seguin, went to school in San Marcos, know all about New Braunfels, traveled all over San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Waco and more. Any of those places is nice, and just wait until you see your apartment choices in SA. Do you want to move into a luxury apartment? Maybe you want an apartment for rent by owner deal.
You are going to find different properties and lease situations. Being a single guy, I would prefer a downtown loft apartment, but who knows if one would be available. I moved from Texas to South Carolina five years ago, but Texas is a fine place to call home. You’re not too far from much if you live in San Antonio, so plan on feeling just a little bit spoiled.
