Why Invest in Kansas City Real Estate?

Kansas City, Missouri, continues to grow, while still managing to maintain its familiar, small-town feel. Its metro area, once known mainly for agriculture and manufacturing, has expanded its economic base and seen strong growth in its telecommunications, finance, and services sectors; the city also enjoys national and regional prominence as a distribution and manufacturing center.

Missouri’s economy is projected to generate more than 105,000 total new jobs (taking into account the time period of 2008 until 2018), a 3.9% increase, while wage and salary jobs are projected to increase by 3.2% (missiourieconomy.org). These spikes will fuel renter demand for rental properties, as a growing number of workers in the area will need housing.
