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?

I'm sure you're going to love the KC area. Overland Park and Leawood are great areas and you are sure to find a nice home to fit your needs there. The market in the KC area is much more stable than those on the coasts, however it is tending to lean a bit to the buyer currently. Let me know if you would like more information on KC - I'd be glad to send you some information.
