Almost every major city has its own character and style, and Kansas City has its distinguishing attributes. If you are looking into Kansas City real estate, and aren’t sure if you want to stay in the city, or you want to live outside the city but stay close enough to utilize the city’s advantages, here are 5 areas to think about buying land.
Harrisonville is the county seat of Cass County. Within a 45-minute drive from Kansas City, Harrisonville is a balanced combination of history and progress.

A quiet town of about 6,000 residents just a few minutes north of Kansas City, Smithville has all the advantages of big city diversity, but maintains its small town atmosphere. Home to the 7,200-acre Smithville Lake with abundant recreation; Paradise Pointe Golf Complex’s challenging 18-hole course; downtown Heritage District with quaint shops and restaurants, Harrisonville is a perfect small town on the cusp of Kansas City real estate.
Another small town gem just north of Kansas City, Riverside sits on the tree-shaded banks of the silent and swift Missouri River. Claiming a pioneering spirit and fierce independence, Riverside citizens possess long historic roots and commitment to their thriving community.
