San Antonio is currently one of the more enticing markets for investors in all of Texas. Specifically, it offers favorable returns and stable property operations. These have significantly increased investor interest in the region. In 2017 alone, there was over $750M in total sales volume in San Antonio, the highest in 10 years.

The Downtown San Antonio Central Business District (CBD) submarket contains approximately 305 office buildings, comprising over 9.1 million square feet. With vacancy now hovering around just 10% and nearly half a million SF of office product currently under construction, the CBD is one of the quickest growing office markets in San Antonio. The market contains a concentrated area of large office buildings, mostly appealing to investors interested in large assets.

The average rents are in the $23-$25 range, which is the highest rate in the San Antonio market due to the prime location and the growing level of competition. The CBD is nestled between I-10, I-35 and US 281, and aside from its thriving business culture, is known for its entertainment and tourist destinations like the Alamo and the River Walk.

With an average vacancy around 10% and rents in the $21-$23 per square foot range, this office market is comparable to the North Central submarket.

Home to many upscale master-planned communities like Encino Park and Stone Oak, and stretching along most of the north side of Loop 1604, it is no surprise that retail dominates this submarket.

In general. this is one of the fastest growing areas in Metropolitan San Antonio. In light of this, it is experiencing rapid growth in the retail and multi-family markets. This submarket includes Sea World San Antonio. Furthermore,  it is in close proximity to Lackland AFB which attracts many military families to the area’s residential communities. Many developers are eyeing this submarket as it continues to boom.

South San Antonio Commercial Real Estate

The South submarket covers the largest amount of land of all the submarkets in San Antonio. It spans beyond Loop 1604 on the east, south and west side. That said, most commercial properties in this submarket are found inside Loop 410. It contains nearly 285 office buildings, totaling over 3 million square feet.

Vacancy is traditionally around 10%-11% and average rents are typically around $17 per square foot. This submarket contains most of the Class C office buildings in San Antonio. On top of that, it boasts a strong industrial and retail market.

Northeast San Antonio Commercial Real Estate

There are nearly 348 office buildings comprising over 6.7 million square feet. So, this submarket contains a healthy amount of office space primarily off of Loop 368 and Loop 410. It does, however, claim the highest vacancy rate in the entire San Antonio market at over 12%.

Average rents in this submarket are in the $20-$21 per square foot range. Perhaps the reason for the struggling office market here, are the many industrial properties that saturate the area.

Most of the office buildings are situated near I-35 in New Braunfels or near US 281 in the Bulverde and Spring Branch area. There are over 900 retail properties in this submarket. This is due in large part to New Braunfels, which is a busy tourist area. Investors will also find many opportunities in the industrial and hospitality markets here.

Kendall County Commercial Real Estate

The Kendall County submarket consists of nearly 180 office buildings totaling over 900,000 square feet. Vacancy typically hovers around 10% and the average rents are usually around $22 per square foot.
