San Antonio attracting more millennials than any other city

San Antonio is a Best Buy City and one of the best places in the nation to get a job. It’s perhaps not surprising then that the city is attracting one particularly elusive group. According to Forbes, millennials are “flocking to San Antonio in droves.” The publication used population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau, finding that “the Alamo City saw the greatest increase in its millennial population, people ages 20-29, out of all U.S. metropolitan areas during 2010-13: 9.2 percent.”

So what’s the draw? Forbes laid out several compelling reasons.

1. “It's pretty cheap to live here.”

Forbes used the Zillow Rent Index, which showed that, “The median rental rate for a home in San Antonio is $995. Other places like Houston, Dallas and Austin have median rental rates above $1,300.”

The affordability extends to some of San Antonio's most popular new-home communities, like Mission del Lago on the Southside. The realization that brand-new homes start from the $150s is increasingly turning renters into buyers. Builder programs at the South San Antonio community, like D.R. Horton’s DHI Home Buyers Club and Lennar’s Home Buyer Solutions Group (HBSG), also help prospective buyers improve their credit to get them in a position to buy a home at Mission del Lago.

Known as “Military City USA,” San Antonio is one of the most military-friendly cities in the nation. And homebuyers in the city are drawn to Southside community Mission del Lago, where veterans are welcomed home and celebrated on Veteran’s Day and throughout the year.

San Antonio, and especially the SouthSide, is the easy choice for military looking to buy a new home. A study by USAA and Hiring Our Heroes called San Antonio “the best in the nation for military retirees, beating out Washington, D.C., Virginia and San Diego, California,” said the San Antonio Express-News. “The study looked at such things as the proximity of installations to veterans, the presence of VA hospitals and health resources, government and civilian jobs, opportunities to leverage post-9/11 education benefits and military pension taxation. With Joint Base San Antonio, and ample opportunities for work, the results weren't surprising.”
