The San Antonio real estate market is going to be hot this year. (Warmer than Austin!) And San Antonio rents aren’t going down. From finding your perfect new home to negotiating rental prices, finding an apartment in San Antonio can be quite the experience. Taking inspiration from our sister publication SFGate in San Francisco, MySA reviews local properties showcasing the best, the worst, and everything in between right here in the Alamo City. Let’s guess the rent.

Buckle up, San Antonio. This week we are leaving behind a home near the airport for this newly renovated east side two bedroom home. There are many new additions to this home that go beyond the typical touch-up.

We have what looks like fresh coats of paint, new appliances and new bathroom fixtures. It’s a charming upgrade to a 1,056 square foot home built in 1925, according to the Craigslist post.

But is it worth the monthly price and the requirement that tenants pay three times the monthly rent? Let’s dive into it.

The house opens onto a fairly spacious living room.

A well-lit living room and hardwood floors greet you through the front door of this home located at 1619 Nolan Street. We also have an upgraded kitchen view.

Yes, I see the accent wall over there. Just be patient. We’ll get there when we get there.

The devices are still boxed, so at least you know you're getting new ones.

It seems like shaker cabinets are the functional yet stylish solution to modernizing the kitchen these days. The microwave is still wrapped in plastic in this photo, so you know the appliances are cool.

This accent wall is something else.

OK. Here is the wall. I this this could be the dining room area. Either way, the wall is eye-catching to say the least.

This bathroom has certainly been modernized.

A new sink with black brushed steel fixtures make up this updated bathroom.

Lots of natural light and hardwood floors in this room.

This bedroom has lots of light and a nice spacious closet. It does the job.

There is a fairly spacious shed in the back yard, but it will cost you to use it.

And now we come to the backyard. This is important because the listing mentions a shed in the back, but if you want to use it you have to pay an extra $50 per month.

So how much will this one-bedroom apartment in the Eastside pay? The Craigslist post is asking for $1,500 per month plus a $1,500 security deposit.

If the listing says tenants have to pay three times the rent, that’s $4,500 a month. It’s a big question. Zumper says the average rent for a two-bedroom house in the area is $950 a month. That doesn’t seem… fair.
