The Hottest Real Estate Markets to Watch in 2018 - The Open Door

The Hottest Real Estate Markets to Watch in 2018 - The Open Door | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
5. San Antonio, TX
San Antonio is known for its River Walk, an oasis of cypress-lined paved paths and lush landscapes where locals and visitors alike go to relax. But the city is bustling, too. In 2017, job growth rose 2.2 percent, and the national homeownership rate increased significantly for the first time in more than 10 years. In fact, homeowners make up two-thirds of the city’s population, at 65 percent. San Antonio’s top employers are a mix of military, city, and school districts, as well as private and public businesses, making this 300-year-old city flush with new job opportunities. These trends are expected to continue into 2018, with homeownership outpacing renting for the indefinite future.
Al Cannistra's insight:

San Antonio made this list - go San Antonio!
