My name is Lorie.
I have been researching Springfield and Joplin Missouri. I am looking to build an 1800 Sq Ft ranch. Can anyone give me names of some really good builders? In the $150-$250 range. I appreciate it. Also, I wanted to know where the bad part of town are. Do you like it here
Thanks so much

I lived in Springfield, MO during 2013 and through 2014. I personally never felt comfortable living there. I lived in the southwest area on the edge of town which is considered a safer area but it never felt safe to me. Unfortunately the town itself has become infested with drugs and crime. If you look at the worst cities in america for crime. Springfield pops up. I am not saying this to start arguments or put down Springfield but just be aware that it's not as safe as most people think. I personally would recommend living in Branson or in the Ozarks and staying away from Springfield. As for which area to stay away from in Springfield, I would recommend staying away from the north end of town. You will definitely be able to tell which area is the north area when driving through Springfield.
