Property of the Week


In case you missed my other posts in our Property of the Week blog series, please take a moment and catch up.


This week’s property selection is inspired by my love of unique experiences. Take a look at this lovely one-bedroom apartment in the heart of St. Louis’ famous Soulard District: Property #375651vb

What attracted me to this property:

Two things intrigued me about this property. First and foremost, the location of this property is wonderful.  The Soulard District of St. Louis is all about some of my favorite things; history, food and good times with friends.  It’s also close to downtown so great proximity to the St. Louis Blues, the Cardinals, many museums and of course the famous Gateway Arch. 

The second thing that charmed me is that the property is actually an apartment above a working store.  The wannabe city girl in me has always wanted to live above a shop in a downtown area.


What I love about this listing:

The description is short, but it highlights all the important things you need to know. The owner’s story is fantastic. I learned a lot about the building, the owner and the area just from reading that section of the listing. I really love some of the pictures on this listing. The pictures of the living area and the kitchen are well done. I also love that the owner included pics of the exterior and the historic park across the street. Lastly the reviews are just delightful!


What could be improved:

There are not enough photos and some are low quality.  The bathroom pictures are dark , and don’t show enough of the space.  The owner should consider reshooting or hiring a professional real estate photographer to take photos that better represent the home more effectively.  The only other area of concern to me is the owner’s response time.  It’s so important to me that I hear back ASAP. Waiting two days would make me wonder how responsive the owner would be during my stay, and if I could rely on the owner if something happened while I was staying.


Overall, I find this apartment lovely and I will seriously consider staying here the next time I travel to St. Louis. What’s your favorite part of this listing?
