That is a great question. Part of it is forecasting, which is hard to do. And, the other part is looking at the history of growth in Kansas City Metro, which of course, you have full access to. In your quest for the "best investment", do you also think about live-ability, affordability, and lifestyle? If you answer those questions then you must ask yourself if you will be living in your home for a "long-term", and if you will even get the opportunity to reap that gain. Maybe you should be looking for a short-term growth opportunity. Is there such a thing in real estate?
