Converse Real Estate
Converse is one of many growing suburbs within and surrounding the San Antonio metroplex. Located along FM 78, spreading to Loop 1604 and I-10, in Northeast San Antonio, Converse runs between two historic military bases — Fort Sam Houston and Randolph Air Force Base (now known as Joint Base San Antonio) which makes it a popular choice for military families PCSing to the area. The city supports its own police force and fire department and a rapidly developing park system. With a median home price of $133,000 (much lower than the median home price in San Antonio region which is well over 200K now), it is one of the most affordable areas to buy in the region! Established in the late 1800s and named after the chief engineer of the Southern Pacific Railroad, Major Converse, who saw the location’s potential and bought the tract of land that is now downtown, the city is steeped in history. In 1896, home to just two cotton gins, a saloon, a quarry and a handful of residents, today it is home to more than 21,000 residents and 250-plus businesses. Converse is projected to grow by leaps and bounds in the coming years with plans to annex adjacent unincorporated segments of the county. Come call Converse home!
