SAN ANTONIO - Like other major metros in Texas, San Antonio’s apartment sector showed strong growth coming out of the recession. However, unlike those other metros, San Antonio already appears to be reverting to a slow growth pattern that is more consistent with its own historical performances, according to MPF Research.

Structurally, the San Antonio metro is a more moderate-growth metro — heavy on government-related jobs, but not on large private employers.

Eight of San Antonio’s ten largest employers are concentrated in either the public sector or in health care, which helps during economic downturns but limits upside potential during prosperous times.

Still, San Antonio’s relatively strong performances coming out of the recession led to increased apartment development, especially in northern submarkets along the metro’s growth path.
