Why Do People Want to Live in St. Peters?
People want to live in St. Peters. Don’t take it from me. Let’s look at the numbers.
The St. Louis Business Journal has been tracking home sales numbers, and St. Peters is at the top of some impressive lists. In fact, for two straight years (2015 and 2016), more homes were sold in St. Peters than any other community in the entire St. Louis region. The Business Journal reports that a total of 1,317 homes sold during 2016 in the 63376 zip code, which is almost all inside the St. Peters city limits. In 2015, there were 1,225 homes sales in St. Peters.
That’s over 2,500 home sales in two years all in St. Peters!
The Business Journal also reported that homes in St. Peters sold at the fourth-fastest rate among communities in our area (43 median days on the market).
So, why are people so eager to live in St. Peters? I think it comes down to a simple fact that your home is usually your biggest investment. You want to buy in a community that offers great services, amenities and value to protect that investment. You want to live in a city that you can trust will provide steady, affordable services and invest the resources needed to maintain critical infrastructure, year after year.
St. Peters does all of that. We have the best water/sewer service and best trash collection service around at the lowest rates. We have great neighborhoods, made even better by all of the parks and trails—nearly 1,300 acres of parks and 20 miles of paved trails, not to mention the world-class St. Peters Rec-Plex. Our roads are maintained with an annual repair program, plus major improvements when needed. Our award-winning water and sewer systems are maintained for efficient, reliable service. Our Proposition P projects address storm water quality through improvements to neighborhood detention basins and streams. Our neighborhoods are safe, protected by one of the most professional municipal police departments you can find. We have so many other top-notch services … and if you have a question, call the Citizen Action Center or stop by City Hall. We always have someone available to talk to you. Real estate agents talk about St. Peters’ great parks and services for good reason!
If you are new to our City, we welcome you and hope you are enjoying your new home and neighborhood. Please look through our website at www.stpetersmo.net and check out all that we offer for residents—including extra benefits that you get with your Resident Privilege Card! We like to call St. Peters “My Hometown” because it is such a wonderful place to live, work and play. We hope it’s your hometown, as well, for many years to come!
Our national motto, “In God We Trust.”
