Our area is rich with many desirable communities throughout the city and suburbs with lots of different housing types and communities with many different personalities. Virtually every housing type is available in every price range. As Johnson County stretches to the south to Miami County and to the north to Wyandotte County which has its own expansion into Leavenworth and Platte Counties, the Kansas City metropolitan area is developing all over. The new home market is complimenting our existing communities to meet the desires and needs of today's home buyer. Jackson County diverse life style is matched with opportunities in housing. The exciting new development downtown with the Arena and the Entertainment/Crossroads district has the attention of the entire nation. The inner city condo/ loft market is at an all time high with many new developments and conversions being offered all the time. To the east, Lee Summit continues to be one of the fastest growing cities in Missouri and the Raymore/Peculiar areas are expanding with more and more community features and offerings being added all the time. The Northland is certainly expanding just as fast as anywhere with so much growth continuing from the Zona Rosa/Barry Road corridors all the way into Pleasant Valley and Liberty areas in the north eastern corridor. Platte Counties amazing growth along with Leavenworth in the northwest and the truly amazing Village West in the western corridor have been sensational.
