Abby if you are referring to the Visitation Park Area of St. Louis. Its a fairly decent area the crime rate has decreased but there are some specific blocks that are considered quiet or more "habitable" then other blocks. The area is named for the church and school that used to operate at the corner of Evans and Taylor Ave. I grew up in the area in the 80's and 90's and it was very friendly at that time. My mom still maintains a home in that area and people are still friendly that I've encountered.... more

Of course, working with an agent that only sells a 4 or 5 deals a year isn't really all that helpful either. Find an experienced full time agent and you will be much better off.
Lots of times, in by owner transactions and negotiating with home builders agents, the general public feels they may be saving on paying 3% to an agent and they end up giving away 15% because they aren't knowledgeble about the factors above and don't have experience on thier side.... more
I come up with 89.6% of list price for what it sold for. There are more variables when negotiating for a new home. What kind of add-ons are you including in your purchase price or will they be purchased later.... more
