There are 2 Kansas Cities ("KC" for short): Kansas City in Missouri (Jackson & Platte Counties) and Kansas City in Kansas ( Wyandotte County ). Many surrounding counties and cities comprise the greater Kansas City area. Some of the largest ones are Kansas City, Lee's Summit, Independence, Blue Springs, Grandview, Raytown, Leawood, Lenexa, Shawnee, Overland Park, & Olathe. Shawnee Mission in Kansas is not a city, but a postal address (& school district) which includes all the cities in Johnson County, KS except for Olathe.

As the popular song goes, "Everything is up to date in Kansas City", aka "the Heart of America." In fact, Overland Park, KS, has consistently been one of the top 25 best U. S. cities. Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine recently ranked KC as #6 "smartest places to live." Several area school districts are award winning and among the top in the nation. Many universities/colleges are located in or nearby KC. There are many cultural activities, 5 casinos, golf, lake, and maintenance provided communities. KC enjoys the 4 seasons with relatively mild winters (snows only a few times a year). Recently the Piper area in Kansas City, KS was selected as the best spot for Universal Studios newest location. This area is starting to boom. Many hotels, a huge water park, and possibly a casino are in the works.
Kansas Tornados ("The Wizard of Oz") are not as numerous as in many other states. However, basements are popular here just in case! Home prices are affordable with choices in city or suburban living. Single family homes,2 stories, split levels, condos, lofts, town homes, patio homes, farms (equestrian properties), airplane/hanger/runway homes, lake homes, golf properties, half duplex, full duplex to multi-plexes, apartments and other investment properties are available. 1031 exchanges are often done by local and out of towners . Many home styles are found here. Single story is often called "ranch" style. Reverse story & half has become popular. One or two bed rooms are on the main level and the rest are in a walk-out or walk-up finished basement. Split entry is another name for bi-level style. Unlike in many other cities, the square footage of a resale home is typically not on the listing information. All brick homes are not very common. Brick trim or mostly brick fronts are found here. Homes equal to those seen in "The Rich and Famous" are seen here. My easy to use web site is very informative and helpful in finding real estate in greater Kansas City.
