Thinking of buying a new home in San Antonio, Texas?  If you’ve ever purchased a home you will know that the process requires careful research and a long checklist of requirements.  Finding a good neighborhood for you and your family requires you to ask important questions about whether your kids will attend quality schools, what activities are offered near home, and how long your daily commute would be.
