San Antonio is considered a global market, attracting people from all over the country, and internationally.

New Master-Planned Development in the Works
An exciting new development is coming down the pipes in San Antonio.

The $100 million dollar development will span across 880 acres just west of the city, emcompassed by the Briggs Ranch Golf Club.
The community has yet to be named, but plans consist of several subdivisions with up to 3,000 homes and 900 apartments in addition to real estate space and office space. Homes in the community are estimated to cost between $230,000 and $690,000, and developers plan to break ground in fourteen to eighteen months.
