St. Louis is a mixture of quaint cottage style homes and 6 bedroom luxury estates. While there are definitely buyers for both kinds of properties, they each have their own specific set of challenges when thrust into the current real estate market of the region. Every home requires a strategy, and no home is impossible to sell.
PROPERTY VALUES IN ST. LOUIS
St. Louis is home to a true blend of property styles, and because of this, values are drastically mixed. A buyer could purchase 6 homes in The Ville for the same price as one home in Compton Heights, as the variations are so remarkably dramatic. A significant portion of St Louis is old construction that has yet to see any major improvement. These homes are valued much lower because of the contrast they strike against the properties in neighborhoods that are updated.
Homes in The Ville or The Greater Ville rarely go up for sale, because there aren’t many interested buyers. These homes are generally smaller, and are more likely to resemble apartments. The lack of interest has pushed values and sale prices down. It’s not unusual to see a home in one of these areas list and sell for less than $10,000. The majority of buyers prefer larger homes in more developed areas closer to the major metropolitan areas which command a higher value due to their in-demand status. Areas like Central West End also have their quirks, with some homes going for as low as $160,000 and palatial homes selling at over $1,000,000.
CURRENT MARKET IN ST. LOUIS
The St. Louis housing market reached its lowest point in November of 2012, and it has climbed back a little since then. In Spring of 2007, the peak average of area home value estimates was at $131,000. Today, it’s closer to $111,000. The ascent has been slow, but it’s steadily happening at a rate of about 5% a year. This value increase is good news for homeowners, but it does little to nothing to affect the overall market health.
The market in St. Louis is considered to be stable, ranking in just below average. This is less than ideal, but stable is better than outright unhealthy. Approximately 0.2% of homes are faced with negative equity, which is double the United States average. One in every 5,000 homes in St Louis is foreclosed upon annually, compared to the nationwide average of 1 in every 10,000. Things aren’t going very well, as St Louis is slowly dragging behind in housing market recovery.
Homes are sitting on the market for seemingly unreasonable periods of time, causing many homeowners to lose hope. Of the homes that sell in a given year, over 20% sell at a significant price cut. The market is neutral, and neither buyers nor sellers are getting a lot of action. Because of this, a lot of homeowners have declined the opportunity to relist their home. Listing times aren’t going down, and properties aren’t selling for as much as they probably should.The statistics are stacked against the average homeowner, but this doesn’t mean that everyone is out of options.
WHAT IF I CAN'T SELL MY HOUSE?
The market is stuck in something of a deadlock. A lot of St. Louis homes aren’t selling – including homes that would otherwise be considered highly desirable. The facts and figures relating to the market don’t inspire optimism in buyers, and a lot of them are making the decision to bypass St. Louis entirely. The properties that do sell are generally mid-value homes in neighborhoods perceived as mildly affluent. Most other properties never get a second glance.
Homes in The Ville and The Greater Ville have other factors working against them. Most of these homes are very small, designed for only one or two occupants. Since they’re also old, they often need repairs and renovations to be perceived as appealing. In many areas of St Louis, monthly rent rates are going down. People who don’t require a lot of space would rather rent an apartment, where maintenance and renovation costs will be the responsibility of their landlord.
COULD YOUR HOME USE UPGRADES?
If modernized, these homes would probably sell a lot faster. Converted to an open floorplan and optimized with space saving amenities, these smaller homes quickly become a much better value than an apartment. Renovating the spaces will undoubtedly improve sale potential, but doing so comes at a price.
Since so many of these homes sell for below $30,000, laying out a few grand in cash to renovate them could easily become a misappropriation of your funds. Sure, the house may sell, but the homeowner ultimately winds up losing money after the transaction is completed.
CAN AN INVESTOR HELP YOU?
Investors will purchase just about any property – regardless of value, location, or state of repair. In the market’s current state, it takes a really tempting offer to draw in the average St. Louis buyer. Investors purchase properties, modify them to suit the tastes of the local market, and then resell them.
They purchase homes in cash by making homeowners offers that reflect the price of the necessary repairs or renovations. The homeowner spends nothing out of pocket, and the sale is finished in a timely manner.
