Cheap houses for sale have become quite common in some areas of San Antonio, Texas as foreclosed homeowners try to sell off their properties or just walk away from their mortgages. As more homes are abandoned by their owners and more people relocate, the crime rates in some areas of the city also escalated.

The East side, one of the areas that offer some cheap houses in San Antonio, has initiated a community program aimed at improving the condition of the neighborhood and, hopefully its housing market. Residents of Council District 2 have been having problems with stray animals, vandals and increased prostitution as the number of boarded up and abandoned homes increases.

In an effort to address these problems, the council conducted a series of meetings to formulate plans on how to improve the neighborhood’s safety records and also battle the impact of housing market woes precipitated by foreclosures and escalating number of cheap houses in Texas. The community has sought the collaboration of code compliance officials and local agencies to put a stop to vandalism and prostitution and control the population of stray animals in the area.

According to area leaders, the program has produced some promising results, but a lot are still needed to be done before the problems are eliminated or at least, minimized. Although the area offers some very cheap houses for sale, not a lot of buyers are interested in taking advantage of the low prices mainly due to the condition of the neighborhood. The lack of buyers contributed to the deterioration of the neighborhood where abandoned homes can be seen in most streets.

However, residents are optimistic that the program will succeed and that eventually, a lot more people buying houses for sale will come to the community. This optimism is not misplaced as local police have reported a significant drop in vandalism and other crimes since the program started.

With the project starting to make a difference, residents and officials of Council District 2 in San Antonio are hoping that the neighborhood will soon become a secure and healthy place to live and that home buyers will start buying the cheap houses for sale offered by the community.
