With so many available rental homes in San Antonio, how do you pick which one is right for you? There are many amenities you should look for in house rentals in San Antonio, especially if you are looking for luxury real estate. Here’s a list of rental home amenities we think you should look for. 


1. A Washer and Dryer (or Hookups)

No one enjoys lugging laundry to the laundromat. First, you have to get it all into your car before you drive to the laundromat that may be crowded or dirty. Then, you have to pay to use shared machines that may have just been utilized to clean who-knows-what off of strangers’ clothes and blankets. On top of all that, the industrial dryers often burn or damage clothes. 


By having your own washer and dryer in your home, you save yourself a lot of time, money, and stress. Even if you look for San Antonio houses for rent that only have hookups and buy the washer and dryer yourself, it is preferable to having to go to the laundromat. We think this is one of the most important things to look for in a rental home. 

2. Hardwood or Tile Floors

Hardwood or tile floors are easier to find in San Antonio rental homes than in other cities. Hardwood or tile floors are easier to clean, less likely to grow mold and mildew, and more aesthetically pleasing than carpet. If you have pets, it is also much easier to handle the dog or cat hair with hardwood or tile floors. You can always add rugs for warmth. 

3. Central Air Conditioning

While you would be hard-pressed to find any house rentals in San Antonio with no air conditioning at all, we advise you to stay away from rental homes that use window air conditioning units. Central Air will allow you to use a smart thermostat and stay comfortable throughout the hot Texas summers. 

4. Walk-In Closets

Walk-in closets are something you don’t realize you need until you have them. Walk-in closets add a touch of luxury to your bedroom and allow you to stay neat and organized. If you are looking for a rental home in San Antonio, check to see which ones have walk-in closets. 

5. A Dishwasher

Something that may be lacking in older homes, a dishwasher is something that is often overlooked. If you are considering a rental home in San Antonio that is in an older or historical neighborhood, check to see if it has a dishwasher. 

6. Parking

Does your potential San Antonio rental home have parking? Whether you need a carport or garage, deciding on the parking you need will help you narrow down your home search. 

7. Outdoor Living Space

With amazing year-round weather, you will want your San Antonio rental home to have an outdoor living space where you can relax and entertain your friends. Whether you only need a small porch or balcony, or a full-on deck or pool area is determined by your lifestyle and preferences. 

8. A Great Location

A great location for a rental home in San Antonio may mean different things to different people. Deciding on an area might mean choosing a neighborhood with great schools, or an easy commute. You may want to make sure your neighborhood is walkable or is close to the places you love to go to. If you want a large lot or you prefer urban living will also change what makes a location great to you. Whatever your preferences, choosing which locations in the city are best for you will quickly narrow down your home search.
