Land in St Louis Missouri

7 Replies

This is my first post and I'm not even sure I'm in the correct forum.

My grandfather (who is a rather smart investor in Hawaii) was duped and invested in a get rich quick scheme a few years back and is now saddled with a piece of property in St Louis Missouri. He wants to sell the property...

Should I...

A. Rehab and flip the property myself. I don't live in or near St Louis.

B. Call up a local real estate agent and list it as is.

C. ???

Please help... Especially if you live in the area.


I live in the area and know people who buy that sort of thing. Pm me the details Please.

Okay! Still getting the info from my grandfather. I will pm you by tomorrow! Thank you for replying.

Hi @Pili Yarusi  I'd be interested in taking a look as well.  Fell free to send me the details if you like.


As well, I'd be interested in more details. 


@Pili Yarusi  

That's a very tough area.  Is it burdened with debt?  Honestly the best bet would be to liquidate quickly (at least priced to sell), the market is only going down hill over the long term.  It's filled with crime & a lot of issues, it makes Ferguson look good (which is nearby).  

Without knowing the rest of the details I would find a qualified agent that specializes in North County (Jennings included).  Price it to sell & never look back.  

Do you have any property details yet?  Location, size, zoning etc?
