House #1: $194,500
This two bedroom apartment is located in the very cute neighborhood of Demun. It is across from Washington U. in St.Louis intramural fields and backs up to Concordia Seminary. It is also a short walk to Kaldi's coffee (a St.Louis staple) and several bars. I like that the apartment is bright and open with hardwood floors.
House #2: $358,500
This property also located in Demun and just down the street from the first seems like a great investment opportunity. The price is for the whole building which includes two two bedroom duplexes. The property has great bones and location just seems to need some updating.
House #3: $539,000
This property is great because it has lots of curb appeal and is located super close to downtown Clayton. One drawback is that it is one a busy street but with so much charm it might be worth it.
House #4: $850,000
This house is located in the Moorlands neighborhood - a very cute and close neighborhood to downtown Clayton. It is conveniently located near local shops, a school and a park. It needs some updating but would make a great family home.
Have a good weekend everyone!
