WalletHub’s new study on the best cities to raise a family in the U.S. reveals fresh insights on what borrowers are looking for when setting down roots and where they might be moving.
Here’s a closer look:
• The report noted that families move often and for various reasons, both good and bad. For example, a re-location might be prompted by a new job or financial opportunity or the opposite, a job loss or foreclosure. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American can expect to move an estimated 11.7 times!
• WalletHub analyzed more than 180 U.S. cities based on 45 key metrics including housing affordability, the quality of local school and health-care systems, and the opportunities for fun and recreation.
• Cities that had lower crime rates, excellent public transportation, easy access to recreational green spaces and more diverse cultural resources ranked higher in the study than locations without these assets.
