Things are really moving in the city now, which explains my lack of posts recently. The April 30th deadline to get under contract for the 8k tax credit is coming up fast, and as of today it’s probably not too late to get moving (though it’s getting tight!).
For this post I’m just going to show a great new listing available in the city. This is a great home that’s been well maintained and boasts a first-floor floor plan that is really sought after in city homes. See more pictures of the property at 2330compton.com.
Take a look at the information below, and more information and more new listings are coming to the site in just a few days!

I get excited about all my SOLDS, but this one was a major accomplishment. 1411 Hebert is the first full renovation to sell in Old North St. Louis for market value. Of course I would like to believe it was the incredible marketing and fierce sales tactics of the agent but the house really sold itself. It truly was one of the most original and thoughtful renovations that I have seen. In fact for the duration of the listing, it was one of the most popular houses Circa had. Additionally it had no less than FOUR written offers. In the end there was one contract accepted as well as one back up offer. The folks in the back up position went so far as to offer to buy the first offer position by giving the people in first position $5000 and refunding any costs they incurred while under contract. That was a first for me. Hats off to the former owners who put so much of themselves into the renovation! And congrats to the new owners who are so looking forward to becoming an integral part of the ONSL community!
