A little about Missouri

Missouri has 6,137,428 residents and the population of the state is growing by 0.3% each year. This puts some natural pressure on home prices.

According to our market conditions team, Missouri is currently a cold market, which is good news if you’re a buyer.

"Clever was Fantastic! Our Agent was a constant professional, who responded to questions almost immediately. He come to view our home & had a professional photographer take pics within a few days! His marketing strategy & contacts within the industry were great. We had our home under contract in 3 days with an over- ask price after receiving multiple offers! Clever & their agent were incredible! Why pay 6-7% for a full service agent when you get a full service agent through Clever for substantially less!! It's a no brainer!!"
