Live/Work St. Louis - Where We've Been?

Real Estate Agent with Prudential Select Properties 2006008903

There have been a few weeks go by since we have tapped on the keyboard to advertise a listing or talk about a real estate topic.  The good news is WE'VE BEEN BUSY.  Busy selling homes, taking out buyers, talking with sellers.  Why is that?  First of all because inventory is low.  We need homes to sell.  In our investigation there are over 600 less homes on the market in St. Charles county than there were this time last year.  Where did they go?  First of all, people have been buying them - imagine that.  Despite what we have been hearing third quarter 2008 over 2007 in St. Charles appears to have had only 10% less home sales according to the MLS but 2,000 less homes on the market.  If your home isn't selling you need to ask your realtor why.  You may also e-mail us for our Seller Survey - Why didn't your Home Sell? 

Buyers are still looking.  Yes there are less buyers at this time of year, but there are buyers looking.  Some people need to relocate, others are getting married, and others have other life changes that are causing them to look for a new home.  We pray all for the better.  The result however, is still the same that buyers are still looking for that perfect place to lay their head at night. 

September, October, and November have been some of our best months.  We want to keep the momentum going.  If you have a home to sell let's get started by educating you on homes in your area with our property investment profile, a complimentary monthly report available by registering at   The next step is to review your home and develop a more detailed market analysis. 

If you are in the buying mode you will want to register a listing alert giving you access to all the homes in the St. Louis Metropolitan MLS at  Define your criteria and e-mails containing information on new homes on the market matching your criteria will be mailed to your inbox.  We sit down to discuss your needs further and refine your search.  Then we are off on home tour to identify your next new home.

We can't predict the market but we are seeing some really great buys out there in pre-owned and new construction homes.  We visited one New Construction builder who had several buyers the day we were there.  They have been busy for several months.  Our search tools and marketing methodology can show you how to find these homes and get yours sold.  We have BEEN BUSY, but we want to be BUSIER.  We love our clients and make them clients for life.  We make them a part of our FAMILY.
