Renting in Merriam

When looking for places to live in Merriam, include cozy studio apartments or one-bedroom apartment units, all the way up to generous homes. Rent is a little higher than the Kansas average per month, likely due to Merriam's proximity to KC. Complexes in the town offer up-to-date amenities such as fireplaces, community swimming pools, private balconies and other nice features. Larger property is also available, including smaller homes and property rentals spanning up to more roomy and equipped homes priced in the higher levels.

Make sure you bring with you the right documents to help seal the deal. Copies of your ID, proof of employment, letters of reference and a credit report are all pretty standard when it comes to renting.

Talonia Court: This neighborhood is located on the eastside of town and is super convenient for anyone who needs to hop onto Route 69 for work. There are also a number of charming parks nearby and it's a nice area with plenty of available units.

Knox: Highland Park is nearby and so is KC's Neighborhood Bar and Grill.

South Park: This is an ideal oasis for those who work in metro KC, but want to live a little calmer and quieter outside of the city.
