Popular Kansas City Zip Codes for Real Estate Investors

One of the questions I get asked a lot by investors who want to invest in Kansas City is, “What zip codes are good to invest in?”.  Any seasoned investor will tell you that this depends on several factors such as: amount of money to invest, type of tenants, level of risk, and investment strategy.

In an effort to help those who are not familiar with Kansas City but are interested or looking into investing in Kansas City, I have put together a very general overview of the zip codes in and around Kansas City, MO.  These are all on the Missouri side, not the Kansas side.

Keep in mind, this is a general overview meant to help guide those who are not familiar with Kansas City.  There can be good investments in areas I have labeled bad and there could be bad investments in areas that I have labeled good.
