My family ended up moving to Lee’s Summit, Missouri when our spouse was offered a sizable job promotion.
The up-to-date position promised a significant raise in pay; While I agreed it was a good opening for him to move up in the business as well as I was absolutely excited about having more money, I wasn’t overly excited with the idea of relocating, but coming from the south, I was upset about the dire winters in Missouri, then i’d heard that the crime rate was especially high. I’d never even visited the Midwest before. I decided to do some research before packing up as well as selling our house down south. I looked into Lee’s Summit as well as was surprised by the scenic landscape as well as proximity to national parks as well as freshwater beaches. I had not known that Missouri was called “the Prairie State” as well as particularly has the ninth largest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in the country, but the state offers a undoubtedly diversified economy as well as offers greater job prospects as well as regular of living than a lot of other areas of the country. It shouldn’t have come as a surprise that our spouse’s business asked him to relocate to Lee’s Summit because Missouri is a center for trade as well as commerce. There’s over 35 Fortune500 companies based there. The Missouri unemployment rate is 4.8%, which is far lower than the national average! Also, the cost of living isn’t overly highâ€¦ Housing is relatively inhigh-priced, allowing us to purchase a much larger, nicer as well as newer home than we were living in down south. The cost of groceries is even lower than what we were accustomed to.
