San Antonio is home to many businesses across a diverse array of industries including medical, financial, technology, data management, manufacturing, sustainability, aviation, defense, retail, office and transportation. As San Antonio continues to offer an elite quality of life relative to other U.S. cities, the MSA continues to induce corporate relocations, company expansions, and commercial development. This economic growth and limited apartment supply will continue to strengthen multifamily fundamentals in San Antonio.

James D’Argenio, Principal for Bascom, comments, “We acquired a well-built, low-density asset benefitting from a great school system and a stable resident base. The interiors offer an upgrade opportunity when compared to newer, more expensive apartments in the submarket.”

Tony Ferrell, Director of Portfolio Operations for the Texas region adds, “North San Antonio and the surrounding markets continue to show strong apartment fundamentals and household economic statistics relative to other Texas markets. The property along with the neighboring properties are all high 90s occupancy with healthy resident analytics.”
