Renting With A Family

Surprisingly, more than one-third of renters have kids at home.  Although renting has always been characterized as a lifestyle choice, market factors have driven more people in the direction of renting.

For those renters with kids at home, balancing the rising apartment rents along with the costs of raising a family can be a stressful challenge. According to the new analysis, San Antonio renters spend just as much money on their monthly rent payment than they do on their childcare costs.  

The cost of raising a family can be expensive, but that cost looks very different depending on where you are living.  In San Antonio that cost includes $1,300 on rent and an additional $1,200 on child care.

As apartment rents keep rising finding the best apartment deal has never been more critical. Our apartment locators know the best San Antonio apartments for renters with kids and can help you lock in the best deal for your budget.

Rent Continues To Soar In The Alamo City

The average rent rates In San Antonio continue to rise, despite the high occupancy rates. While occupancy rose to 89.9 percent, average rent also increased to $928 during the month of May. Not only did rent increase, but so did the average size of an apartment to 850 square feet.

Rent continued to increase, even as hot markets developed across the city. Areas like Leon Springs, Boerne, Kerrville and Brooks have all seen significant annualized growth. The Northwest submarket, I-10 and Loop 1604 continue to be one of the most active areas for multi-family development. These areas have continued to see price increases, driving renters towards more affordable deals further along North I-10.

If you are in the market for an apartment, take note that concessions will continue to decrease as summer rolls in.  Call our expert apartment locators today at (210) 802-1112 to start your free home search!
