Moving to Lee's Summit Missouri

My family ended up moving to Lee’s Summit, Missouri when my husband was offered a huge job promotion. The new position promised a significant raise in pay. While I agreed it was a great opportunity for him to move up in the company and I was certainly excited about having more money, I wasn’t overly thrilled with the idea of relocating. Coming from the south, I was worried about the harsh winters in Missouri. 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 and selling our house down south. I looked into Lee’s Summit and was surprised by the scenic landscape and proximity to national parks and freshwater beaches. I had not known that Missouri was called “the Prairie State” and actually has the fifth largest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in the country. The state offers a very diversified economy and offers greater job prospects and standard of living than a lot of other areas of the country. It shouldn’t have come as a surprise that my husband’s company asked him to relocate to Lee’s Summit because Missouri is a center for trade and 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 high. Housing is relatively inexpensive, allowing us to purchase a much bigger, nicer and newer home than we were living in down south. The cost of groceries is even lower than what we were accustomed to.
