St. Louis, MO is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $45,782 and a median rent of $840, the St. Louis, MO rent-to-own market is more affordable than the traditional housing market which has shown tremendous growth across the U.S. and with it, aggressive competition for home purchases. With the current housing shortage trend it can make it harder to become a homeowner, including in St. Louis, MO.
