My family of three is relocating due to job transfer and searching for a home in the Arnold/Ballwin MO area. We would like to find a home for Rental/Lease Purchase agreement until our current home is sold and to better qualify for a conventional loan. Our new home is needed JANUARY 2014 for our daughter's school transfer after the Holidays. We have remodeled our current home and therefore would appreciate and are hoping for a home that is updated and move in ready. Functionality and space are priority over the amount of bedrooms it has and at least 2 bathrooms are wanted. Homes in Arnold that are in the Sherwood School district will not be considered.

Sherwood is in the Fox School District. Fox incorporates all of Arnold. Sherwood is only an elementary school. Why not Sherwood?

Move to Ballwin, and stay as far away from Arnold as you can. Your child would either go to Parkway or Rockwood School Districts depending where in Ballwin you live, and both of them are much more highly ranked than Fox. Plus, Arnold is a political mess and run like a backwater fiefdom. You do not need the aggravation.

Wow!!! What a treasonous bastard you are!! Some "Advice" you gave.

To the OP, do not pay attention to "Advice". Most "political messes" are engineered by local extreme right wing conspiracy theorists who also believe our government engineered the 9/11 attacks, that the WTC was a controlled implosion, that the Pentagon was hit by a missle. Ignore these people, please, and consider Arnold as a place of residence. There are plenty of homes still on the market to lease or rent.

And one more thing to discredit Advice. They are so paranoid they have false proxies to hide their location because they think people are out to get them. Most likely the person is wearing a tin foil hat, too. ;)

To familyof3andapet:

Be careful what you post on any of these threads. a couple responders to your request are notorious for being detrimental right here.

In all measures Ballwin has more to offer because it has a much better tax base, and therefore offers a much better school district withmany more benefits.

Not that there is anything wrong with Arnold, but Ballwin will give you more to choose from and your chilren will have an advantage of sorts.

And keep in mind that David Rutherford had admitted that he doesn't even live in Arnold.

Thankyou for your comments although this is not helping me find a home ... lol. I have checked newspapers, craigslist and various other websites. A gentleman that my husband is working with is transferring to a different position and relocating to Joplin. He has offered his home as a lease with purchase option. His home is nice but still needs some work and updating and is extremely large about 3000 sq foot and a bit much for just me my husband and our 5 year old daughter. I feel it might be more of a "money pit" for us then what we need and hate to accept it just because we are crushed for time. It has unfinshed rooms, bad water pressure ... and i checked all three bathrooms .. loI I will have to admit .... I think I would be happier in Ballwin just from my one and only visit there but could not afford the pricier homes although from everything I saw all of the neighborhoods look well cared for and it woild be much closer to my husbands work. I have family that lives in Arnold and they advised against Sherwood Elementary...... And as far as the government discussion ? I wouldn't put anything past them.

There are some villas for rent that would be in the Fox Elementary area if you are interested.

For a dog of that size it would be nice to have a yard for it to run off some energy.

actually he is a big baby and just wants to lay around all day and have his belly rubbed. A yard would be nice though. Our home now has a large privacy fenced yard.

Actually, Familyof3andapet, House Springs has lots to offer families with pets. There are lots of properties with big plentiful yards perfect for big dogs. You may consider calling Prudential-PhaseOne Realty and talk with Randy or Pat about what you are lookinf for. Plus you get the advantage of the Ever Improving Northwest R-1 School District and its many acomplishments recently. Plus you get that Warm Fuzzy Country Life feeling. We have many stores and some restaurants, lots of natural areas to visit. We have plenty of churches of all different beliefs, and we are conveniently located at the intersection of Highway 30 and MM/W, which can lead directly to St. Louis, St. Clair, Imperial, or St. Peters.
So consider us and good luck in your house hunting! HAPPY THANKSGIVING, TOO!

Notice how he said improving district. Northwest isn't as good as Fox. And House Springs is a good drive.

See, I told you he doesn't live in Arnold. He just likes to post on our board.

I do not live in Arnold for a reason. Nothing there that interests me, especially after reading all this s*&t about all the infighting amongst the Arnold Leadership.
Northwest R-1 has come a long way and has received some very - VERY - prestigous awards in the last several years. Cedar Springs Elementary is close to the top in Elementary Education in Missouri.

The drive is what makes our community much better than yours. You don't feel like being surrounded with people, crime, bad politicians, you know, the big little city stuff.

And yet you don't live here so you wouldn't know jack about our community. You hate our town so much that you choose to comment on out board. That makes no sense.

I said othing about hating Arnold. I read the newspapers and also have been in business a long time in Jefferson County. I am aware what goes on around us. I choose to comment on the City Board because of what is in print about it, nothing else.

So take your words of hate back and remember that you LUNN have a tendency to put yor words in others' mouths very frequently. So much to be said about your disdain for normal healthy debate. You seem to fill ewach thread you touch with that same hatred and your blather about what other people think or say. No wonder many people are insulting toward you!
