Thinking about moving? The market is currently excellent for both buyers and sellers. In an July 4 article titled “Pent-up demand and low mortgage rates lift St. Louis housing market,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that through May, the number of homes sold this year in St. Louis County was 5,008, up 11 percent from the corresponding period in 2015, according to figures from the Multiple Listing Service. St. Charles County sales rose 9 percent, to 2,275. Jefferson County sales were up 14 percent, to 1,290. The only decline was in the city, where sales dipped 1 percent, to 1,181 houses.
The article also stated that counties in the St. Louis, Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland and Philadelphia metro areas are among the 25 most affordable U.S. markets determined by the percentage of wages needed to buy a median-priced house, according to a new report by RealtyTrac, a housing data firm.
