St Charles Homes for Sale
St. Charles resides just northwest of St. Louis and partially flanks the Missouri River.
The city, at one time, actually served as the temporary capital for Missouri in 1821 while the city of Jefferson was being developed. Lewis and Clark even called St. Charles as one of the last “civilized” stops before entering into the great unknown west.
The casinos in the area are the largest employers followed by the St Charles County and the St. Joseph Healthcare company. What makes this city so appealing is its access to the city of St. Louis, as well as the natural, recreational aspects of the state.
St. Charles Recreation & Entertainment
The city sits at one end of the Katy Trail, a 225-mile recreational destination for hikers and bikers. On the north side of the city is one of the newer parks made for the four-legged type. This park is part of the DuSable Park-Bales area and allows dog owners to run their dogs off leash.
The city owns the 11,000 seat Family Arena known better as the St. Charles Convention Center. The professional soccer team, the St. Charles Ambush actually use the Family Arena for their games. The community focal point, however, is the riverfront downtown district boasting both a residential living and small business main street.
Some of the city’s notable celebrations include the 4th of July at the riverfront, Oktoberfest, Christmas displays and events throughout December and the Irish Festival that takes place in September each year.
St. Charles Schools
There are 31 schools (public and private) in the city’s districts with almost 20-elementary schools, roughly one-dozen middle schools and about 8-high schools. These schools are served by three districts with the Francis Howell School District being the largest. 43% of residents are said to college educated.
St. Charles Real Estate
An incredible 85% of St. Charles residents are homeowners with the median home price coming in just over $253,000. One thing to note is that St. Charles homes move very quickly, with the average home only sitting about 15 days on the market.
Homes sold in just the first part of 2019 have exceeded 2018’s numbers in the same period by almost 6%. Active inventory is down in early 2019 by nearly 9% compared to 2018. Even the “pending sales” statistics are up, and sales overall are 11% higher than last year. This means, if you are looking for a St. Charles home, you’ll want to work with a knowledgeable real estate professional who has inside knowledge about the market.
