Greetings from San Antonio

4 Replies

Hello everyone, I'm Tomas and currently in San Antonio. I arrived 1 year ago, and originally left when I was 17 to Los Angeles for 15 or so years. There was no was I could afford a home being an artist in the LA economy. I'm currently a product designer (web/mobile apps/ipad) and I have saved a nice nest egg to invest and want something that will continue to grow and provide for me down the road of life. I've been reading on investing to own a rental property (I hear in SA SFH's are better then multi-units) and now I am here! I'm looking to learn from veterans, get advice and if anything give some value where I can. Cheers everyone. - T

Hey @Tomás Moreno

Welcome to BP, SA is a good place to be.

The thread above is a little dated but a great place to start.  I'd also recommend getting plugged in to some of the meetups around town.   If I can be a resource hit me up.

Thanks I went throught the forums searching san antonio and found this so I already read it, I also grew up in "south town" which was called the south side back in the day lol I know the city quite well so a lot of that is spot on good stuff! I would say that the Eastside is booming, but the area where your home is next to will matter quite a lot, not just location.  T
