Frequently asked questions about Missouri real estate
Is it a buyer's or seller's market in Missouri?
It is currently a seller’s market in Missouri — but it might not be for long. The overly-optimistic sellers are overpricing homes and properties are starting to take longer to sell. Although this is the overall state of the market, each local area is different, so check in with a real estate agent to know your city’s particular trends.
Is Missouri a good state to invest in real estate?
It’s a good choice to invest in Missouri real estate, especially in more populated areas like Kansas City or St. Louis. However, it takes a lot of preparation to do investing right, such as researching the best neighborhoods and creating a property management plan. Find out more in our guide to real estate investing.
Is it a good time to buy a house in Missouri?
Now might not be the best time to buy a house in Missouri, as both listing prices and mortgage rates are high. If you’re adamant about buying, then work with a real estate agent to help you find a decent deal.
