Kansas City is the second largest metropolitan area in Missouri (after St. Louis); yet, median rents are high compared to the rest of the state and nation. Relative to household income however, rents are low. Possibly the concentration of industry headquartered here such as Sprint Nextel Corporation (Kansas City Metropolitan Area's largest private employer), Hallmark Cards, Garmin, H&R Block, etc., have supported income levels even in hard times. Rents increased since the year 2000 perhaps due to movement away from home ownership. Average price of a 1 bedroom apartment is $560 and 2 bedroom $755. Kansas City has many attractions including the popular Convention Center, Truman Library, and the football Kansas City Chiefs and baseball's Kansas City Royals. Also, the city is known for its world-renowned barbecue and jazz.
