Here's an idea for locals seeking a better return on their real estate dollar . . .
METH TOWN OFFERS MORE LIVING SPACE FOR THE MONEY!!
The downside, of course, is that residents would have to live in Meth Town.
If you can call that living.
Here's a more optimistic take . . .
We analyzed around 250 U.S. cities, only to find out that INDEPENDENCE is the undisputed leader of our top 50 Cities by private space within rentals.
Some other locations in Missouri like KCMO, Saint Louis and Columbia provide quite generous private spaces, although the number of people sharing the same apartment is slightly higher.
Renters live largest in peaceful Independence, where they get about 731 square feet of private space, or 2.24 rooms per person. That’s about 191 square feet more than the national average of 540 sq.ft., or one extra bedroom, in other words. Good news for those choosing to commute to Kansas City for work.
Rentals in KCMO give each apartment-dweller 631 square feet of private space and KCK as much as 642. This is placing the two cities on the 38th and the 29th spot, respectively, in our Top 50 Cities by Most Apartment Space per Person across the U.S.
In Saint Louis and Columbia, renters enjoy around 630 square feet of space per person and between 1.88 rooms and 1.93 rooms each. That’s impressive when you think that in San Francisco an entire apartment is just as large, and the average American renter gets 100 sq.ft. Less. Both cities made it to the Top 50 Cities With Least Personal Space Per Renter.

The average apartment space per person is about 540 square feet, based on the ratio of the average apartment size to the average number of renters living in a household across the U.S. As the total apartment size has decreased throughout the past 10 years, so has the amount of living space per renter.
