Sorry I should have preferences my response with this.
I got asked this question so i thought i would post my reply.
Can you give me a little bit of information about the St. Louis, MO market as well as some credible sources to back it up as a good market to buy and hold properties?
How does a person know if they are buying in South St Louis city? what zip codes is this area. A realtor sent me a listing at 30k. I am offering less but it is hard to tell if it south st Louis or not.
You can look at a map anything south of 44 is considered south st louis in my book. Here is a Map just zoom in and out to fide they zip code.
Even in South St Louis there are certain pockets that you want to stay away from. I think it is good to have someone act on your behalf here who can do some due diligence on the area. You can also look at Zipskinny.com and get some demographics info to make an informed decision.
I consider S. St Louis to be south of I-64.
