WESTFIELD, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – When it comes to getting out of town and buying a home in the suburbs, a new national ranking places Westfield at the top. The real estate portal Homes.com wanted to investigate the change in consumer behavior in relation to living and remote working in more detail.
Due to the pandemic, working from home and eliminating commuters has resulted in mass migration from large metropolitan areas, according to the website.
Homes.com has rated the top 50 suburbs in the United States. The list of dormitories is based on the list of the fastest growing cities in each state in the US Census and rated them against a number of home purchase criteria.
The total score is based on the property prices, the size of the houses, the yard size, the ratio of income to housing price, the radio from home, the schools, the crime rate and the diversity.
In his article, Homes.com said, “Westfield offers a charming mix of newly constructed artisan-style homes at list prices that are extremely reasonable relative to the suburb’s median annual household income.”
While some states had more than one parish, Westfield was the only Indiana suburb that made the list.
“It’s not just a thing that builds a great community. It’s a real partnership and shared commitment from our public safety team, principals, business partners and our residents. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved and where we’re going, and it’s nice to be noticed, ”the city said in a statement.
In addition to being the highest ranked suburb, the Hamilton County community scores for being conducive to remote working, ranking second behind Leesburg, Virginia.
