One suggestion would be to rent when you first move here, wait for your house back home to sell, then look to build. While not great, having to move twice, it will allow you to get into the area, research important info, like schools, neighborhoods etc, then make the decision on where to live. It will likely be less stressful knowing that you no longer need to wait for your home to sell, before you can close on your dream home.
In the meantime, to search for information about the KC area, please visit our website, http://www.RealtyXkc.com for information. Not only can you search for area homes for free, you can also get useful information on schools and city demographics.
