Guess the rent of this updated 3-bedroom, 1970s Schertz home

More people have been looking to move to San Antonio in 2022.(Especially from Austin!) And San Antonio rents aren’t dropping. From finding your perfect new home to negotiating rent prices, searching for an apartment in San Antonio can be quite the experience. Taking inspiration from our sister publication SFGate in San Francisco, MySA is looking at local properties showcasing the best, worst, and everything in between here in the Alamo City. Let’s guess the rent.

Last week’s midcentury apartment off Broadway was very charming (even the pastels), but this week we’re headed out to Schertz to take a look at this three-bedroom home built sometime in the 1970s but recently updated. 

The outside of this 1,745-square-foot home at 800 Brooks Avenue doesn’t look like much, aside from looking like it was built in the 70s. But it does have a rather large backyard.

Is it the inside that counts with this home, and is it worth the monthly price? Let’s dive in. 

The vaulted ceilings make this living room look huge.

The bedroom is pretty but isn’t much in terms of windows and natural light. That could be a deal-breaker for some. 

There are two bathrooms in this 3-bedroom home.

Now on to what could be the biggest selling point (or not) for this home. A large backyard. There’s plenty of space to do whatever you want in the yard.
