Real Estate Market Update for St Louis, MO
Welcome to September's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of August.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 13%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was 150-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 14% year-over-year, and decreased 4% month-over-month.
