Case Study:
We have a 2 year old and another on the way. We are looking for 3-4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Our price range is between $300,000 and $400,000. We would love to educate ourselves on and to visit some of the many charming neighborhoods of St. Louis, preferably with some walkability and retail/restaurant components. We would love to look at a few houses to see what our price range can afford us in which neighborhoods and to better understand the local market and we need to be close to Washington University’s School of Medicine.
It is a bit overwhelming to look into all of the different neighborhoods (switching between a map to conceptualize, google directions to understand distance to WashU medical center, and blog/website urls to get a sense of the each vibe), but I want to maximize my exploration time in St. Louis…In addition to the TGE and South neighborhoods, do you have any other neighborhoods on which I should do some research and/or look into exploring on my own time …would love suggestions on maybe neighborhoods/locations that would be nice to check out and grab breakfast/coffee or dinner (and to take a 2 year old to).
