San Antonio Growth Fuels Real Estate Market

Anyone looking for a rapidly growing real estate market need look no farther than San Antonio, Texas. As the nation's eighth largest city, San Antonio, is poised to move even higher in the rankings. The Alamo City had a 2004 population of more than 1.2 million, a four-year jump of 8 percent. The only other big city nationwide to gain more than 5 percent was Phoenix (Pop. 1.4 million). If San Antonio keeps growing at its current pace, it will pass San Diego, CA., to become the seventh largest city by 2010.

All this population growth means that the real estate market continues to grow at a steady pace as well. And, with the population predicted to double by 2020, real estate investments should continue to appreciate.

Wow - I didn't know it was such a large city, since there are so many other large cities in Texas, and from your post it appears that it's poised to become even moreso. Possibly larger than San Diego by 2010!
