"On demographic maps of Johnson County, the hard-core right-wing parts of Olathe and Shawnee stand out for their slightly lower real estate values" (Thomas Frank, American journalist and columnist; author of "What's the Matter with Kansas?")

Shawnee, Kansas, is an area rich in history. The city is an amalgamation of Native American and Western traveler influences. It began as a centralized hub connecting transportation routes throughout the Civil War, and after the war, travelers following the Oregon, California, and Santa Fe Trails wound through the eastern areas of Shawnee. Today, Shawnee has suburbs, neighborhoods, and a unique personality that's popular with residents and visitors alike.

Housing Market Breakdown

The housing market in Shawnee is affordable throughout all of the various neighborhoods. Many people opt to live in Shawnee because of the lower-priced housing and close proximity to high-income jobs in nearby cities such as Overland Park, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri. You could consider it a commuter's paradise.

Shawnee is ranked as an extremely livable area with high graduation rates, high income per capita, a wealth of local amenities, and a stable housing market. While living in Shawnee is affordable compared to other cities, the median value of owner-occupied homes in this city is slightly higher than the national median. However, when compared to the cost of living in nearby cities, Shawnee offers exceptional value and a much quieter setting. Owner-occupied homes make up 80.9 percent of the housing market, while 19.1 percent are rented. Opportunities to own a home are considerably higher here, but there are also great choices in rental apartments, houses, and condos -- many of them single-family homes with spacious floor plans. But don't let the odds deter you from renting in Shawnee--with the right realtor, you can get exactly what you want.

What you need

Surprisingly, it is much easier to get into a rental than it is to find one. Kansas is a friendly state, and renting doesn't usually include all the rigorous background checks found in most other places. Most landlords operate on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you find a place you like and have cash in hand, you already have your foot in the door, literally. While some landlords will ask for a list of references, most are satisfied with your first months rent and a security deposit. Many rentals are not pet-friendly unless you are willing to put up a security deposit to cover the possibility that your beloved furry family member might make the carpet a personal toilet or chew toy. Some of the more upscale rental communities have waiting lists, so if you want one of these, you will need proof of income, a list of references, first and last months rent, a security deposit, and possibly even a reference from your veterinarian on the gentle nature of your extremely well-behaved pet.

Welcome to the Neighborhood

There are four primary neighborhoods in Shawnees Neighborhood Focus program. Residents of these neighborhoods frequently issue news updates filled with information relevant to the area and surrounding cities.

Goddard Heights:Goddard Heights was first established in 2009. There are more than 600 residents living in the neighborhood and more than 250 single-family homes, 19 percent of which are currently unoccupied. Neighborhood groups plan activities that will bring the community closer together. This neighborhood has its ups and downs, but for the most part, offers a neighborly environment for you and your family. At a reasonable price, you can make Goddard Heights your new home.$$

Shawnee Pioneers:Shawnee Pioneers is one of the older neighborhoods, first established in 1999. Properties are well maintained, safety is topnotch, and city services are both affordable and accommodating. However, the lack of sidewalks leads many residents to choose driving over walking, which may prove to be detrimental to your health--and the environment of course. $$$

Shawnee Village:This is another of the newer neighborhoods in Shawnee. Several major infrastructure improvements have benefited the area economically because residents can now more easily access local, high-paying jobs. But, prepare yourself to put in some work to live in this neighborhood. No, really, a lot of work. Rentals are often cheaper here because of lack of upkeep. If you're not too picky about quality, and love the low prices, Shawnee Village is calling you.$

Trail Springs:Trail Springs was first established in 2000. The neighborhood is within close proximity to downtown Shawnee, which provides employment opportunities. There are great rental options available in the area, particularly single-family homes. The neighborhood is going through some tough times with several local businesses closing. Trail Springs also lacks sidewalks, something that might cause families with children to be concerned. Although prices are attractive, consider looking elsewhere if you're coming with a fully-loaded minivan.$$

Living in Shawnee

Although Shawnee is in Kansas, it's far from any Wizard of Oz experience. There are no girls clad in ruby-red slippers, and while the city is located in tornado alley, it is unlikely that one will swoop down and carry your home off to a colorful land with a yellow brick road. Instead, Shawnee buzzes with life as residents travel to and from Kansas City and Overland Park. Traffic tends to be a bit of a nuisance, but it is a forgivable issue given the high livability scale of this great city. Considering how affordable it is to live in Shawnee, most residents overlook traffic issues as a minor inconvenience, and road rage is almost nonexistent.

Quiet and safe Shawnee offers plenty of activities. There are great places to eat throughout the various neighborhoods. In fact, residents can find some of the best-tasting margaritas in Kansas at one of the local Mexican restaurants. In the mood for great pizza? There is plenty of that too. Located in the heart of the city is the 1,200-acre Shawnee Mission Park, featuring a lake, a beach, nature trails, and an outdoor theater offering live music and entertainment.
