Rehabbers Club Users Group
1789 Members, Archives: Membership required
The Rehabber's Club is a collection of folks interested in rehabbing in St. Louis City. They meet each month in a different neighborhood with the mission of visiting all 79 neighborhoods in the city. Topics range from *historic tax credits, how to work with contractors, how to find a property to fix up, how to finance that property, residential to commercial properties, working with long-range commercial redevelopment plans or rehabbing a bathroom in your house, Co-housing, energy efficient renovation, and a host of other topics...from working on a faucet to redeveloping lofts, investing in multi-families or first time buyers wanting to take on a major old home.
Learn about city neighborhoods, and financing packages, too. Meetings are usually held the 3rd Saturday of each month from 9:30-11:30 am. Often times, the group tours homes currently being rehabbed in the neighborhoods they are meeting in. Also, the group has a listserve on the internet where they share information, ask questions, etc. There are about 1800 members with a wide range of experience, so many a question gets some good answers.
You can subscribe to this *free* listserve by sending an email to *firstname.lastname@example.org*. The group is an official on-going project supported by ReVitalize St. Louis. For more info, call Marti Frumhoff @ 314-368-6373 or visit our website at www.rehabbersclub.org

This web site was developed to serve as a resource to both novices and experienced renovators working in the City of Saint Louis. Saint Louis is composed of 79 distinct neighborhoods, each with its own unique mix of historic buildings ranging from small frame shotgun homes to multi million dollar mansions, corner storefronts to massive warehouses. Preserving, restoring, and renovating these buildings helps enhance the city's overall character and appeal.
