The Benefits of using Ad Astra Realty & Management

We fully understand that a property manager can make or break an investment property.

Since 2006 Chris and his team have been managing investment property in the Kansas City area. There are a lot of differences when it comes to managing in Kansas and Missouri. Here are a few you need to be aware of.

  • Missouri requires a real estate license to manage property
  • Kansas does not require a real estate license to manage residential property
  • Many cities in the metro area require rental property licenses
  • Kansas City, MO has an additional earnings tax of 1%
  • Did you know some area cities have their own document requirements?

Because of the state line, the legislative and the cultural differences of the two states it's important to work with a property management team that knows where they are and what will work, and what won't. Our team has residents of both states on staff.
