Living Near the MetroLink

In May of 2009 I wrote a post titled: Homes Under $200,000 near St Louis MetroLink stops and I was thinking about revisiting it because I just met a new clients who thought they had to live in a specific area to have access to the MetroLink. At our initial meeting they expressed interest in a 2 bed 2 bath condo. And as I was clarifying their desired amenities, I realized that they were actually  interested in single family homes but that they weren’t sure where they could go and still be close to a MetroLink stop.

Then I saw this on NextSTL.com. As St. Louis lost 29,000 residents from 2000-2010, 6/7 Neighborhoods with Light Rail Saw Gains.

And I realized it was definitely time to revisit the idea of living near MetroLink stop.
