Most Expensive Neighborhoods
More than half of San Antonio renters are burdened by the rising cost of rent, but which neighborhoods are to blame?
Zumper has released a report detailing the most expensive areas to rent in San Antonio right now. The real estate website combed through thousands of listings to determine the median price for a two-bedroom rental across San Antonio.
Downtown San Antonio racks up the largest bill. A two-bedroom unit in this hot 'hood has a median price of $1,690 per month — $680 more than the San Antonio median of $1,010. In second place is Olmos Park Terrace. Rent in this historical district, comprised mostly of cottage-style architecture, is $1,320 a month.
Medina Valley is the third most expensive neighborhood in Alamo City. Rent in this growing suburb is $1,280 a month, due to new construction, high square footage, and stiff rental competition. A similar phenomenon is happening in Eckhert Crossing, No. 4, where rent is $1,245.
Following close behind are two of San Antonio's most affluent neighborhoods: Stone Oak ($1,225) and Monte Vista ($1,220). Rounding out the top 10 most expensive neighborhoods are Willshire Terrace ($1,195), Oak Park Northwood ($1,150), Terrell Heights ($1,150), and Alamo Farmsteads ($1,135).
