Missouri Apartments and Homes

Overview

The Show-Me State has a great deal to show visitors and residents--including fertile plains, picturesque hills, rolling prairies and historic rivers. The Mississippi River forms the state's eastern border, while the Missouri river winds across the state. These waterways made Missouri a land of travel early in its history, sending supplies west with the pioneers. And these days, there are many factors that make Missouri a great place to call home!

What to Expect

Missouri's economy is diversified into a variety of industries. Manufacturing, retail and agriculture are all significant components. Some leading products include automobiles, beer and other beverages, and defense and aerospace technology.

Tourist and residents alike are drawn to Missouri's numerous attractions, located all over the state. Popular sites include the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the country music of Branson, Mark Twain's boyhood home in Hannibal and the Harry Truman home and library in Independence. Not all of Missouri's attractions are man-made, though; of equal interest is the natural beauty of the Ozark region, numerous lakes and great rivers.

Where to Explore

Missouri is a welcoming state in many ways, one of which is its affordability. The cost of living is generally below the national average, and that includes apartment rental rates.

Kansas City Apartments

Missouri's early settlers, who formed a trading post in 1821 on the land that would become Kansas City, probably couldn't have guessed that 200 years later, the area would be home to about 500,000 residents. It's known as the "Heart of America," and its most famous attributes are pure American: steaks, barbecue and jazz. As if good food and good music weren't enough, the cost of living here is below the national average, and apartment rentals are relatively affordable.

St. Louis Apartments

With a population of about 310,000 and a cost of living below the national average, St. Louis has a great combination of big-city amenities with small-town costs, and friendly people to boot. The most recognizable feature of St. Louis is the Gateway Arch, symbol of the city and the nation's tallest man-made monument. Other attractions stretch the gamut from museums and galleries to wineries and eclectic restaurants, as well as riverboat gaming and pro sports (baseball and hockey are represented by the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues). When it comes to looking for apartments for rent, you can take your pick of a cool loft downtown, a posh condo in the Central West End or a variety of other styles of apartments in one of St. Louis's unique neighborhoods.
