St Louis Housing Market Recovery Underway

St Louis Realtor, Dennis Norman, Past President St Louis Association of RealtorsIt’s hard to believe that it has been over 5 years since the housing market bubble burst but, as we begin this new year, it is good to continue to see market data that supports a St Louis housing market recovery is underway!

As we have been reporting here on St Louis Real Estate News, over the past few months we have seen a solid recovery trend in the St Louis real estate market.  Home prices have increased as have home sales, the new home market continues to make progress with new home construction and sales on the rise and distressed home sales (foreclosures, REO’s, etc), which cause downward pressure on home prices and make a sustained recovery difficult, are on the decline.

St Louis home prices for 2013 were at the highest level since 2008.  As the chart below shows, homes in the 5 county core area of St Louis (city of St Louis and the counties of St Louis, St Charles, Jefferson and Franklin) sold in 2013 for a median price of $142,281, the highest level since 2008 when the median home price was $142,990.
