@Ryan Mainwaring I haven't been there in a while.  I ran the nationwide marathon a few years back but everytime I'm there it changes quite a bit.  I had a cancer as a kid and was up there a lot (from portsmouth) and then all growing up was there at least once a year.  And then more recently my niece had leukemia so my brother and sister in law were spending a ton of time there.  That hospital has a special place in my heart, and it's nice to see places around it getting nicer. 

Texas is great!  San Antonio is a really great city and not a bad place to invest either.  

@Aaron Bihl   Thank you for sharing your history.  Glad to see the Hospital really helped you and your family.  

This area has changed a ton in the last few years, for example this property is on miller avenue in driving park. A few years ago I would have only bought properties in southern orchards, old oaks and merion village but now I would buy in those areas plus driving park, all areas down to vasslor village, and all areas down to reeb-hosack.  The city plus private investors are doing a great job to make this area nice and safe.

@Ryan Mainwaring

Great work and nice BRRRR for motivation.

I am surprised that you mentioned driving park as a favorable area, while I was recently looking in that neighborhood was told by a couple of PMs that it is many years far from any gentrification.

I think you are in good shape because Miller ave is just around where Driving park begins?

I recently purchased a duplex around 7-8 blocks south of E Livingston in southern orchards and is going through a rehab for long term rental.
