Pros/Cons

Here are some of the PROs and CONs from our impressions:

  • PRO: Solid and stable market – Established industry and military presence
  • PRO: Diversity in employment – Creates a reliable tenant base
  • CON: Limited growth – San Antonio has been growing, but not as much as other markets

Money could definitely be made, especially for established local players.
Limited upside potential with the lower growth rate and limited Deal-Flow we found.
