What $1,000 a Month in Rent Gets You in San Antonio


While, obviously, there are thousands of great places to rent and live in the Alamo City, let's face it, some places definitely give you more bang for your buck. A quick search on Zillow gives you an overwhelming amount of options, with $1,000 giving you 3 bedrooms here or a single studio apartment there. So in the name of curiosity, and a slight obsession with HGTV, we found some cool places to live in San Antonio for under $1,000 a month.

The Flats at Big Tex, E3, 423 Blue Star
Studio, 1 bath, 558 sqft
Right on the river in Southtown, this amenity-driven apartment complex is close to all the best of downtown living. Just a short walking distance from the Blue Star Art gallery, shops, restaurants and bars, this location is absolutely ideal, though what you can get for under 1K in these studio apartments is, like the square footage — limited.

HemisView Village A1, 401 Santos St.
1 bed, 1 bath, 684 sqft
In case Southtown isn't close enough to the Tower of the Americas for the puro San Antonian, this listing is a few blocks walk away from Hemisfair Park. With state-of-the-art interior and exterior amenities, this new addition to SA's downtown living scene seems to be more worth its size.
