Rent to own Homes in San Antonio, TX

When a big city's population is on the rise, it should indicate that it might be a great relocation destination. Alamo City definitely fits that description. In 1691, Spanish explorers named San Antonio to honor Saint Anthony of Padua because their arrival coincided with his feast day. The city's estimated population of 1,547,253 in 2019 was a 16.7% increase over the 1,327,407 residents it had in 2010. It is now the seventh most populous city in the country - with the likelihood of surpassing Philadelphia's population count for the sixth spot within the next few years - and the third most populous in Texas. People are moving to the city at a rapid pace, and for good reason.

San Antonio, which encompasses 460.93 square miles, has a cultural environment and a rich history. Its professional sports teams have excelled recently, which helps boost city pride. The city's unemployment rate is below the United States' average, and future job growth expectations are above the national average. The economy and housing market are keeping pace with the population growth to make room for even more newcomers. A family-friendly environment, excellent restaurants, loads of attractions, and great nightlife are all part of what makes this city so attractive. If you're thinking of moving, you should stop by San Antonio to see for yourself what everyone loves about Alamo City.

San Antonio, TX is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $53,420 and a median rent of $1,025, the San Antonio, TX rent-to-own market is more affordable than the traditional housing market which has shown tremendous growth across the U.S. and with it, aggressive competition for home purchases.
