The Maplewood Market Is Hot

 

With record-low inventory and demand on the rise, now is the time to sell in Maplewood. If you’ve ever considered selling your Maplewood home, there’s no better time than now. Buyers are vying to get into the award-winning MRH School District, but with so few homes on the market (currently there are only 9 active listings) it’s not an easy feat. (To search all active listings, click here.)

Not only are buyers faced with the challenge of low inventory and high competition, but home values are on the rise. This means if you’re serious about buying in Maplewood, you must be willing to pay at or above listing price.

Maplewood ranks high on national ‘hipster’ list

Maplewood (ZIP code 63143) has been ranked 14th nationally on a National Association of Realtors’ list of “hipster” places to live — beating out cities such as Eugene, Oregon, and Minneapolis. Hipsters, according to the study, are “those who embrace the indie culture and tend to embrace lifestyles of artisanal coffee and avocado toast.” Maplewood has at least half a dozen shops to find ‘artisanal coffee.’ The director of economic research for realtor.com® said hipsters have a knack for getting it right. “Based on our research, there’s clear evidence that ‘hipster’ popularity — in markets like Austin, Texas — has led to mainstream interest and higher home prices over time,” said Javier Vivas, director of economic research for realtor.com®.
