Luxury Living in Alamo Heights
As a native of San Antonio, I look around in amazement at the number of luxury homes for sale in Alamo Heights area, including Olmos Park and Terrell Hills (collectively known as the Tri-City area in real estate circles). For decades, San Antonio was a military town and a tourist town, with relatively few homes in the luxury category. The technology boom has created a increased market for luxury homes in our area as we continue to attract larger corporate residents employed by companies like Rackspace, Valero, NuStar, USAA, AT&T, Geekdom, Medtronic, and a plethora of start medical device start-up companies like Bluegrass Vascular Technologies. These types of companies bring higher paying salaried positions which leads to…. more luxury homes.
Just where are these homes located? The good news is that luxury homes are located all over the city: downtown, north, south, east and west. There are some master developed areas which have been strategically placed near areas near large corporate headquarters (USAA), the airport, downtown, golf courses, etc.
Alamo Heights, Olmos Park and Terrell Hills have long been the luxury neighborhoods of San Antonio. These towns continue to hold their appeal and value as their proximity to downtown, the airport, the arts, shopping and restaurants, combined with some of the best schools in the city, make them desirable and enjoyable neighborhoods.
So, you were just transferred to San Antonio and need to find a luxury home for sale. Where to start?
Each Buyer has unique needs for choosing the location of the new home. It is generally related to proximity to work or to a specific school. If you search has lead you to the Alamo Heights Independent School District (AHISD), you have arrived at a website which specializes in homes in this school district.
