At Home in Kansas City

If you’ve never been here, chances are pretty good that you think Kansas City is a flat wind-swept city in the heart of America, where cows outnumber people at least 2 to 1. That may have been true 100 years ago, but these days, Kansas City, MO is a thriving metropolitan city with a diverse population of more than 2 million people.

Newcomers are always surprised to learn that a city with such a rich history seems to thrive on reinventing itself. Communities across the metro continue to be revitalized with renewed purpose, and people across the country have taken notice. In fact, U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Kansas City, MO #49 on their list of best places to live!

The vibrant night life of the Power & Light district, First Fridays in the Crossroads District, world class shopping at the Country Club Plaza, and countless other “perks” of living in Kansas City, MO, have made it a hugely popular destination for younger homeowners. Millennials who come for jobs in tech and other industries are staying put and calling Kansas City home – and with good reason — the cost of living in KC is relatively low compared to other growing cities in the US, the job market is optimal for younger people, and there is so much to see and do here!

It’s no surprise that with younger homebuyers entering the market, real estate trends have shifted. South Kansas City suburbs are no longer the first choice for first time buyers and young families. These days, a more urban vibe is preferred, and walkability is key. Close proximity to shopping, dining, and entertainment is a must-have for millennials, which is why Westport, the Plaza and the Crossroads district have all become hot spots for apartment living. And this year, with development of the Plaza Heights neighborhood underway, homeownership in the most popular part of Kansas City is finally an option for buyers!

Please stop by our sales center on the Country Club Plaza for more information about the newest Kansas City neighborhood – or contact our agents, Susan Palmer and Allison Rank. We can’t wait to meet you!
