I have properties in Ferguson and Webster Groves. I don't have any issues with the areas. Even with the riots, i consider Ferguson a decent city. The problem I have with both are the cities themselves. In my opinion corrupt, and looking to soak the big bad evil landlord.
@Jason Miller I'm also curious what kind of problems you've had with Webster Groves as a landlord.

I undestand what you mean by "targeting" people, landlords among them. Florissant Road is notorious as a speed trap with Ferguson Police, and it's even worse with Calverton Park. Go 36 in a 35, and you will know what I mean.
If investing in St Louis again, Webster Groves would be at the top of list for places to consider scouring for a buy and hold.
So would you buy either property again, knowing what you know now? Do you have property managers taking care of them?
Is Southern Illinois a bad place to purchase properties?
