Looking for a new home in San Antonio? Buying a home in Alamo City is a popular choice—one that FORTUNE recognized by naming San Antonio the No. 5 “Hottest Real Estate Market of 2016” by and a “Best Buy City.” But with so many choices, how do you know where to buy? This list of 10 reasons to buy a home at Mission del Lago should make your decision a little easier.
The ability to tailor your home to your lifestyle
Whether you’re moving to San Antonio for a job thanks to the Southside’s vibrant job market, are looking to raise your family in the revitalized area in which you grew up, or are seeking multigenerational living options, you’ll find what you’re looking for at Mission del Lago.
The wide array of buyers
The South Side is the ideal spot to put down roots for everyone from those who work for large employers nearby like the Toyota plant, to military homebuyers in San Antonio who want a relaxed and valuable place to live that’s close to Fort Sam Houston, Randolph Air Force Base, and the New Braunfels VA Clinic.
San Antonio was recently named America’s Friendliest City by Travel and Leisure as “a big city with small town vibes,” and the Southside has become one of San Antonio families’ favorite communities. A few reasons why: its location in the heart of the fastest-growing area in the city, an abundance of jobs, and great amenities for dining, shopping, culture, recreation, and family fun. And don’t forget about the schools. Julian G. Gallardo Elementary School is located within the Mission del Lago community and is a TEC “Recognized” school. But, perhaps most important, families moving to Mission del Lago love where they live and extend that warmth to new neighbors, creating networks of friends for every member of the family.
Real estate sales have been consistently strong throughout San Antonio, and Mission del Lago is the fastest-growing community in the San Antonio MSA. A byproduct of that popularity: rising home prices. Home prices in San Antonio are up overall and have risen at Mission del Lago by $20,000 in the past year—with future gains predicted—because of the strong sales trends. However, homes at this Southside new home community are still some of the most affordable in the city and are even comparable to rent in some of the newer apartment complexes.
The revitalization of the local area
No place is hotter in San Antonio than the Southside, with great new amenities and activities, dynamic employers, and a thriving San Antonio real estate market. The area continues its revitalization with new businesses and infrastructure, especially in and around Brooks City Base, and recreational opportunities like the seven-mile Mission Reach, which connects four of San Antonio’s Spanish Colonial Missions.
The variety of amenities
Indeed, there’s always something great to do on the Southside, which is where the best entertainment, cultural, and recreational spots for fun activities in San Antonio are increasingly located. Playing at Jim Mattox Park or Julian C Gallardo Park and Playground, walking or riding the Medina River Trail, playing a round of 18 at Alamo City Golf Trail’s Mission del Lago Golf Course, and birdwatching and enjoying nature at Mitchell Lake Audubon Center are a few ways people on the Southside enjoy the city.
The convenient location
Work at the Southside Toyota plant? Attending the new Texas A&M University campus? Looking to be close to Brooks City Base or within easy access of IH-37 or downtown? You’ll appreciate living at Mission del Lago even more.
It’ll surprise you the first time you visit Mission del Lago and take in the abundant natural beauty of the area, including the rolling greens of the Mission del Lago golf course that wind through the neighborhoods. When you’re here, it feels like you’re a world away from the city, yet you’re just minutes from all the action.
