Beacon Hill Ranks Among Nation’s Hottest Affordable Neighborhoods

San Antonio’s Beacon Hill neighborhood made the top 10 in Redfin’s ranking of the nation’s hottest affordable neighborhoods. It isn’t just the only Texas neighborhood to make Redfin’s ranking of in-demand neighborhoods with median home prices below $294,000; it’s also the only one in the Sunbelt.

Redfin agent Perry Sanders said the neighborhood, bordered by Interstate 10, West Hildebrand Avenue and Fredericksburg and San Pedro roads “combines old San Antonio charm with 21st century urban living.

“The architecture includes a mix of single-family homes, condominiums and townhouses,” he added. “Combine that with Beacon Hill’s plentiful shops and eateries, and you quickly understand why the neighborhood has gained popularity in recent years—a trend that’s likely to continue.”

Six of the top 10 neighborhoods are in just two cities: Philadelphia and Baltimore. McKinley Park in Chicago, the Boston suburb of Lowell, MA and Fircrest in Vancouver, WA round out the list.
