Information Technology (IT) & healthcare jobs are in demand and Kansas City is the #10 city on the hottest job market! With an abundance of job openings in these areas, Kansas City is seen as a strong job market.

 

Monster.com has also singled out Kansas City as a hot market for retail jobs! There are new incoming retailers such as Trader Joe's in South Kansas City in the Ward Parkway Shopping Center and Leawood - and now Nordstrom Rack, which plans a store in nearby suburb Overland Park, Kansas.

Of course, the benefit is not only having job opportunities available for those that are currently in the Kansas City job market, but it can also strengthen our relocation housing market. Jobseekers who are looking specifically for IT, or healthcare related jobs can give Kansas City a fresh new look as a place to live. Our cost of living is low with the average home prices in the metropolitan area having increased by just 1% over the past year.

 

The average existing home price for December 2010 in our Kansas City metropolitan area was $145,583, almost the same as one year ago - $144,789. So, for under $150,000 a homebuyer can purchase a 3+ Bedroom, 2 bath home with 1+ car garage depending on the neighborhood. Or, a 2-3 Bedroom condo in a variety of neighborhoods from downtown Kansas City to the suburbs. So, Kansas City has the benefit of having affordable housing, a low cost of living and being a hot spot for trending jobs in 2011. Come on to the perfectly convenient and centrally located Kansas City - in the great Midwest.

You're right Scott, we are lucky. Now, if only we could do something about these foreclosures...  : )That's a national trend that I wish we could get away from. Thanks for checking in!
