New Home Communities in Monroe County

Monroe County lies on the south western edge of Illinois State, adjacent to Missouri State on the other side of the Mississippi river. As such, Monroe County also forms part of the St. Louis Metropolitan Area, with the regional home to numerous Fortune 500 corporations. This has evidently benefited residents of Monroe County, who enjoy high household incomes at a lower cost of living.

The county seat of Monroe County is Waterloo, where many residents are of German ancestry that can be tracked to a region in Northern Germany, Porta Westfalica. As such, Waterloo hosts the “PortaFest” every summer in honour of its sister city. This partnership has since assisted the formation of other sister cities between the United States and Germany, including that of Columbia, the largest city in Monroe County. In 2001, it declared the city of Gedern, Germany, as its sister city, and has gone on to win Reader’s Digest ‘Sister City Award’ for its share in securing world peace.

Schools in Monroe County are managed individually by their cities. In Waterloo, there are 7 public schools that cover students from elementary school to high school, whereas in Columbia, there are 4 public schools and 1 private Roman Catholic grade school.

Most important of all, is the safety and peace of mind that Monroe County offers to all citizens. In Waterloo, property and violent crime rate is an astounding 50% lower than the national average. Columbia does not fare any worse, with a violent crime rate of 25.2 points compared to the average of 41.4, and a property crime rate of 27.6 points compared to the national average of 43.5. Bearing this incredible statistic in mind, come on down to Monroe County today to visit your new home.

The top builders in Monroe include BeazerUSA, Rowles Homes and NVR, Inc. with their latest developments in the Northview Estates, Stonechase and Auburn Estates communities.
