Homes are now considered as medium-priced for the area, ranging from $ 80,000 to $ 220,000. They are definitely being sold, but at a slower pace. So buyers have more choices and can use free will. At present it takes longer to sell, ranging from nearly 3-5 months and there are frequent foreclosures than before. Landlords are very happy as there are more good tenants and it's been easier to rent. Moreover, rents have rose by about 5-7%. Home prices have slightly declined by about 5-8%. Mortgage Rates are also going down just like everywhere else. The market still maintains a better value ratio than in many other cities (such as Florida and California) and homes are still extremely affordable.

The St. Louis market is definitely a buyers market at this present time. According to the "Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight" committee, the home prices in the state of Missouri rose last quarter by 1.03%. For the past one year, homes are appreciated by 5.02%. Negative appreciation could be seen in New Hampshire and Rhode Island for the past quarter. Another important point to look at is the rural versus the urban. In rural Missouri, appreciation at 2.7% and urban shows a 1.4%. So, we feel rural is a better investment at this time. But, not necessarily so. However, when it comes to investing in real estate, can start with the country, state, city, then neighborhood to research the pros and cons of investing. Real Estate is still a great investment.
