When it comes to rent affordability, San Antonio is one of the best places to be. The area’s year-over-year rent growth (4.6%) came in below the national average of 6.4% – in stark contrast to its neighbor to the north (Dallas), which saw rents jump upwards of 7% in 2015, Yardi Matrix data shows. Moreover, San Antonio’s rental market is expected to cool down even more this year as there’s been a supply of new apartments coming online, something which is set to continue, giving renters more options to choose from when looking for a home.
How much does an apartment cost in San Antonio?
San Antonio offers you more for your money than most other markets, too. While the national average rent in January was $1,170 a month, San Antonio’s came in at just $939. Even more surprising? For just a few hundred more than the national average ($1,326 a month, to be exact), you can get a spacious 3-bedroom apartment in the Alamo City.
