With just over 8,000 people living in the Helotes area, many new homebuyers are looking at the area for its space, Hill Country views, and affordable pricing.
Helotes is a very tight-knit community, one that focuses on fun for the whole family. In fact, Helotes was the 2013 selection for “Best Small Town in Texas to Raise Kids.” There are four huge parks for people to enjoy, including the city park with a playground, Helotes Creek Linear Park, a disc golf course, and the Iron Horse Canyon Natural Area.
Residents enjoy a lot of “local flair” when they move to Helotes. There are plenty of unique options for BBQ, Mexican, Chinese, or delicious “homestyle” food right in the area. Beer lovers enjoy the many watering holes in the area, with quite a few cafes and even a winery nearby. You don’t have to venture into San Antonio to get some good eats; Helotes offers it all!
And of course, being a great place to raise kids, there are also some stellar schools in the area. Northside Independent School District has a wide selection of campuses in Helotes and the neighboring areas, making it easy to find a school perfect for anyone. There are also a ton of options for sports-loving kids to enjoy football, softball, track and more.
In Helotes, families and individuals can buy their groceries and basic necessities at Wal-Mart or take a quick 5 minute drive to H-E-B Plus! Just down the road a bit further is Helotes Plaza, Huebner Oaks Center, or The Shops at La Cantera for bigger shopping trips and “Big Box” stores. Being centrally located on Bandera Road means that Helotes residents don’t have to go far to get where they want to go!
There are a handful of emergency rooms and health care options like the Helotes Medical Clinic and Baptist Emergency Hospital, as well. Local family practitioners, dentists, and veterinarians are right off Bandera Road in the heart of Helotes.
But for many homebuyers, the proximity to San Antonio is a huge selling point. Just a quick 22 mile jaunt southeast on I-10, Helotes commuters can be in downtown San Antonio in about 30 minutes. What’s not to like about that?
On top of that, new home builders are loving the area and building homes left and right. Show your homebuyer clients the amazing new build options in Helote – homes start in the mid $100s! Seriously!
