My husband (who is originally from Missouri) and I will be moving to Missouri some time this year. We currently live in Ontario, Canada.

My husband would prefer to live fairly close to Harrisonville, as that is where his immediate family lives.

We will be needing a real estate agent in the near future - any recommendations? We may have to rent, rather than buy. We also have 1 dog and 2 cats, plus 3 Dwarf Hamsters to accomodate! I've seen that some communities limit the # of pets and sometimes the breed of dog!

So far, we are interested in Belton, Raymore and Peculiar areas.

We don't know where we will be working either, which makes everything a bit more difficult too.

Any information, websites, etc...would be very helpful!

Thank you,

The only breed ban that I would think applies around here would be some cities have bands on Pit Bulls. And, if there is a # restriction in a city, it is usually 3 pets and I've been told that is for cat and dogs. I think other inside pets aren't counted but would have to check to say 100%. Do you have children? Harrisonville has it's own school district and Peculiar and Raymore are in the same district. Good luck w/ your decision! I'm sure it will be nice to get here w/ family. Happy New Year!!!!!

I work in Harrisonville and overall it is a nice town. It is experiencing slow, steady growth...the number of new businesses is growing too. Harrisonville is reknowned for its high school football team...I think they won every game this year, but they are being put into a tougher division next year + will have a new coach, so who knows what will happen. I can't think of any reason why you would not want to live there, unless you prefer more of a city environment. Harrisonville has a small town feel and the folks there like it that way.
Raymore and Belton are also nice...Raymore is one of the fastest growing towns in the nation.
Lake Winnebago is 15 minutes from Harrisonville, and Greenwood is 20 minutes from Harrisonville, if you are looking for other options that are a little closer to the city. Being that you don't know where you will be working, that is something to consider, as you may find more job opportunities in Kansas City, or even Lee's Summit, which is 30-35 minutes from Harrisonville and much larger.

Out of the three towns you mentioned I prefer Raymore. Raymore also one of the fastest growing towns in the metro area. Peculiar and Harrisonville are more rural and further away from the rest of the metro area.
