Was quite surprised at the opening paragraph of this article: "... the Gateway City always seems to win at our expense, so it’s hard not to sulk." Chi-town is sulking, SULKING, in regards to little ol' St. Louis?!?!?! Wow... Honestly, wouldn't think that would be word I'd ever hear in this regard. More likely StL is ignored by our friends there, I'd think. Nonetheless, its always interesting to hear/read what other's say about our beloved city/region, and what they recommend to see/do there. Nice find STLCB'89.

Default Best Cities To Buy A Home

I know Forbes is generally considered to not be the best source, but St. Louis is #3.

How is Forbes not a good source???

Cool news though - wish I could buy there right now!

I just worry that when I decide to move back in 6-8 years it'll be too late! The secret will be out and I won't be able to afford it!

If it gets pricey like Chicago, I'll be doomed to live in the suburbs! Right now I can buy a newly updated historic 3/2 SFH in Tower Grove Heights for less than a 1/1 condo in the neighborhood I live in in Chicago (and it's by no means the priciest 'hood either!)

But shhh don't tell any body!

That Forbes listed SF as #8 seems insane to me. I grew up in the Bay Area, got out at 20 and still wonder how on earth my friends manage to "live" there.

In Sacramento, we're a family of 4 living on one income and no, my husband is not making huge bucks. We're at about $90,000 and that includes his great benes package.

SF might be a great place to buy a home for investment purposes, but good luck having much quality of life. You're just too poor to do much unless both partners work full time.

A median home price in SF of $805k?!?!? Good golly... wow... makes all the others on that list very attractive. Man, I love San Fran, and knew it was expensive, but yikes, that is insane. Yea, I'll take StL and the Blues for a fourth of that! Interesting the locations of their selections.

Default Banks in St. Louis

I read where U.S. Bank is the largest bank in St. Louis. Is that correct?

What do you mean by largest? Most branches?
