So, I'm climbing back into the homebuyers saddle...or bike...or whatever.
With that in mind, as well as how much I plan on spending, I am able to hone in my search. Online real estate search engines are a wonderful thing. I've looked at a lot of places without ever changing out of my pajamas (sometimes, I do it in my bathrobe). When I am able to meet with a realtor, I can show my list of favorites...and they can not bother me with the house that has the lime green kitchen with pink cabinets.
I know I want a place with a yard, possibly 3 bedroom, and a garage. What stumps me is where to move. Sure, I like the Northland, but I don't want to limit myself. I know there are lots of good areas in KC. However, I also know there are also bad areas. If at all possible, I would like to avoid living in Meth City, a Shooting Range for Thugsters, or a trailer park.
That being said, I am enlisting the help of my friends and avid blog fans. Where's a good place? Lee's Summit? Grandview? Belton? Gladstone? Liberty?
What places should I avoid??
