With explosive growth ongoing throughout the city, San Antonio families are finding their way home to the Southside, and, especially, Mission del Lago, the fastest-selling community in its price range and one of the fastest-selling in the entire city. So why is this Southside masterplanned community the choice of so many San Antonio homebuyers? There are a number of reasons.

The Southside is hot

South San Antonio is the center of attention in a city that is thriving, and it’s attracting the attention of homebuyers who may not have been aware of everything the area has to offer.

  • The San Antonio Missions’ recent designation as a World Heritage Site has brought new attention to the city, especially on the Southside, where four of the five missions are located. The impact on the San Antonio economy is expected to be tremendous, with more than $100 million and 1,000+ jobs flowing into the city over the next several years.
  • Brooks City Base is the most exciting development in the city, and is being transformed before our eyes from a shuttered Air Force Base into a vibrant industrial/business park, mixed-use community, and entertainment complex.
  • Everything from large employers like the San Antonio Toyota Plant, to the Texas A&M University campus, which has grown faster than expected, has also brought more positive attention to the Southside.

The jobs

San Antonio was named the No. 5 “Hottest Real Estate Market of 2016” by FORTUNE and a “Best Buy City” by Forbes. The city also ranked highly on Forbes’ list of Best Places for Business and Careers, who noted that, “The San Antonio area has projected annual job growth of 2.7 percent, 26.7 percent college attainment and 1.5 percent high-tech employment.” For Mission del Lago homebuyers, the community’s proximity to the Toyota Plant on the Southside, new Southside businesses and employers who are expanding, and downtown, make commutes easy.

The legacy

For many, the Southside represents nostalgia, a childhood spent cultivating traditions and supporting family values. Today’s revitalized Southside welcomes back individuals looking to return to raise their own families with the same values and a whole new fresh outlook. Mission del Lago is an obvious choice for those who grew up in the area, but also for homebuyers drawn to the convenience, amenities, and lifestyle advantages of the community.

The family friendliness

Days spent at the Jim Mattox Park playground. Searching for rare birds at the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center just next to the community. Getting together with neighbors who’ve become friends at one of the annual community events. Walking to pick up the kids at Julian G. Gallardo Elementary School, a TEC “Recognized” school that’s located within the community. This is the essence of the Mission del Lago lifestyle and an important reason why so many families are choosing to buy a home on the Southside.

The mix of great homes and affordability

Real estate sales have been strong throughout the city, which means rising prices. Mission del Lago’s new homes in San Antonio start at just $160,000, with all the space and features homebuyers are looking for. New releases like D.R. Horton’s Express Homes and chic offerings from Lennar mean buyers have numerous options from which to choose. Quick Move Homes also give buyers the option of moving in right away without the wait of construction.
