SAN ANTONIO

If any city is the embodiment of determination, perseverance and resiliency, it’s San Antonio, Texas. It’s a national treasure — home to one of the country’s most celebrated icons of liberty. Over the nearly 175 years since the heroic Battle of The Alamo, San Antonio has grown into a world-class destination among travelers and those looking to relocate. It is truly the cultural gateway to the American Southwest. Today, the 26 million people who visit the city each year can attest to its broad appeal. From its magnificent, romantic River Walk and rich history to its Tejano culture and theme park attractions like SeaWorld and Six Flags Fiesta Texas, San Antonio offers vacationing families a memorable, fun-filled retreat.

But the greatest perks belong to those who choose to live in San Antonio. Despite the recession and the downturn in the national economy, the city remains one of the top 10 most-active housing markets in the U.S. and the country's second most recession-proof municipality. Ranked the 3rd fastest-growing market in America, San Antonio is among the 10 best cities for home sellers and among the top 5 cities to buy a home. What's more, home closings in San Antonio continue to outpace starts and the city ranks first in the nation in home price appreciation*.

San Antonio resides deep in the heart of a state that continues to dominate the national economic statistics, outpacing and outperforming the rest of the country. Thanks to an expanding economy, high energy prices, its lowest unemployment rate in 25 years and the advantages of a gradual appreciation in home values over the past several years, Texas consistently boasts a healthy housing market.

San Antonio. There's no better place to live, work, start a business or raise a family.

* Based on population of at least 1 million and more than 10,000 new home starts/ closings.
