Renting? Get the Biggest Bang for Your Buck in These Cities | Katonah Real Estate

Kansas City isn’t just topping charts for its barbecue this summer — it’s also where renters can get the most for their money. According to Zillow’s latest analysis, Kansas City is one of 10 big cities offering the best combination of:

  • Current rental prices
  • Price per square foot
  • Low year-over-year changes in cost of rent
  • Low cost of rent compared with the cost of buying a home

If you’re looking to rent, this could mean the difference between a 2-bedroom with a private patio and a 500-square-foot studio. And for prospective buyers facing the current rise in home values and low for-sale inventory, renting in one of these cities may present an attractive alternative.
