Carondelet area has long been a community within South St. Louis area highly rated for people who enjoy city living, with the inviting atmosphere that suburban communities garner. So much so, this area has their own website. Go to, for more information. As any area, especially in the city limits of St. Louis, there will be incidences of crime. There's another website that I use called, there you can click on advanced search and see a specific 30 day span for the last 6 months of any area. This is a beautiful home, let me know if I could be of any more assistance to you. Thanks. Janel Williams-Broker's Corner Realty-314-827-5478. ... more

Unfortunately, there are no specific obligations for the seller to disclose break-ins prior to the sale of a home in the state of Missouri. However, it can be a part of a good faith understanding to share experiences that can help a buyer understand what precautions he/she can take living in the home. It's always a good idea to inquire about police statistics before moving into a home when these concerns arise. ... more

A real estate agent is not allowed to address that type of question. There are web sites that could assist you.

Check with the local police precinct of the neighborhood in which you are considering living in. It is also helpful to get a feel for the neighborhood by driving through the area after work, on weekends, during the day (if possible).

Good luck!

The best answer is to go to the neighborhood and talk to the residents. As a real estate agent, I am very hesitant to direct my client to a web site as they can be very accurate. But, talk to the neighborhood residents regarding their experiences. It is especially helpful to direct your questions to long--time residents who can provide you with the history of the neighborhood and its evolution.

I am glad to hear that you are relocating to the St. Louis Area. St. Louis City has many distinct and fantastic neighborhoods and the Tower Grove area is certainly one of them. If you are concerned about crime statistics you can gather that information from the St. Louis Police Departments Website.

Just to give you a little background on the Tower Grove Area: this is one of the most popular up and coming areas in the city. Over the past few years there has been a ton of rehabbing and renovation in the area, and it is now a hot spot for young people and families who are looking for a great home in the city. There are many new businesses, shops, and restaurants who cater to this neighborhood. However, you should keep in mind there are still some areas in transition. My best advice is to work with an agent who is knowledgeable about the CITY (You will find there is a difference between the City and County in St. Louis), tell the agent about your needs and what you are looking for in your new home. Things like price, type of home (single family, multi family, loft), neighborhood amenities, proximity to work locations, and schools are all things that a good Realtor should ask about. Once we have this information we can steer you in the right direction and ultimately help you find the home that is perfect for you.

As a Realtor who works extensively in the city, I would be more than happy to answer any further questions you may have. Please don't hesitate to contact me.

Here is the answer to your question directly from the St. Louis County Police Website.

I'm thinking of moving and would like to know what type and number of crimes occurred in the area. How can I find out before I make my decision to move?

The County Police Department keeps a breakdown of crime statistics. Call the precinct station nearest the area you are interested in and talk with the Neighborhood Policing Officer. If you are considering moving into a municipality, call that municipal police department. [top]
