Current Resident: I love the small town feel of this suburb of Bentonville and Fayetteville. I have lived here for about 10 years and Cave Springs Coffee Co is the best coffee shop in Northwest Arkansas.

#4 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Suburb in Michigan
- Rating 3.33 out of 5 3 reviews
Niche User: Living in Midland has been amazing. I went to elementary through high school in Midland and the school system there is unbeatable, the level of learning is very high and it prepared me for college. Also living in Midland you have so much to do, our biggest tourist attraction is the fridge which is on the Tittabawase river. The bridge connects the skate park and playground with downtown midland which is full of local businesses including my brothers clothing shop. If I had to do it over again I would go back to Midland every time. Its a great city to raise a family.

#6 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Suburb in South Carolina
- Rating 4 out of 5 3 reviews
Current Resident: Pretty much Fort Mill, SC. Close to Tega Cay. No one calls it Riverview. The Schools are great, low crime, but no night life, no food delivery services except pizza. I have no idea why. Hardly any shopping available. Rock Hill or Charlotte, NC provide closest shopping.

#8 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Town in New Mexico
- Rating 3.68 out of 5 19 reviews
Niche User: I came here 20 years ago, thinking we'd be here about 3 years, but it's been a great place to raise a family, and now we've moved our retired parents and other family members into the community! The altitude can be tough for those coming from sea level, but other than that it's a fantastic place. Concerts every Friday night (free) at local parks, parades, art events, a craft brewing cooperative, great neighbors, trails, skiing, it's a super area and it's welcoming and visually appealing. It helps that it has a great climate and good schools, too.

- Rating 4.33 out of 5 3 reviews
Current Resident: a great, quiet small town; advantageously located 40 minutes from New Orleans and 20 minutes from Baton Rouge. 5 minutes from the small city of Gonzales for shopping and restaurants. Ascension Parish schools are terrific. Near the interstate, so travel is easy as well.

- Suburb of Davenport, IA
- Rating 4.6 out of 5 5 reviews
Current Resident: I like living in a small cultured tourist town such as Le Claire. There are things to do and local shops to see. I live in an area that has MidAmerican Energy which I enjoy having. There is also a consumer choice in Internet services which is nice. The amount of local business diversity is amazing!

#13 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Town in Ohio
- Rating 4.78 out of 5 9 reviews
Current Resident: Minster is an awesome town. Minster Local Schools is not too big, so everybody knows each other and gets along. Here, you don't have to worry about walking around alone because it is safe as can be. We have bars where you can buy great pizza, wings, and beer. Basically, everyone here is raising a family so kids get along easily. There are houses being built at all times especially in our newest part of town called Stonegate. I have yet to buy a house but my brother graduated from Minster and he settled down here too. There is a YMCA down the road where I go every morning to workout and over the summer there's a town pool that you can swim at. Everything you may need is close by where you might live so short drives all around. Something that might surprise you is that the industry is huge here. Close by is where Crown started, a Dannon plant, Precision Strip, Minster Machine, and much more job opportunities to start your career.

#18 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of Huntsville, AL
- Rating 4.06 out of 5 214 reviews
Current Resident: Overall a nice town, with a huge amount of tech jobs and great schools. The housing market is heavily skewed towards sellers, and the town encircled by the larger city of Huntsville. Commute if you work at the arsenal can be quite bad, and there is little public transportation. The nightlife is getting better, with a dave and busters just being completed, along with TopGolf. Politically more moderate than the surrounding areas, as the influx of tech workers moderates the staunch conservatism of the surrounding state. Alabama weather is awful. The FBI has moved into the arsenal, bringing even more jobs to the area, so the madison area is expected to become the largest city in the state in the near future.

#19 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of Pittsburgh, PA
- Rating 4.3 out of 5 30 reviews
Current Resident: Gibsonia is a very pleasant area with kind inhabitants. The winding roads will get you from one activity to another, with plenty of stops on the side for local restaurants and bars to fill your needs. Gibsonia has a higher-age demographic, roughly 55-60 years on average. Though there is not a lot to do in terms of youth-aged activities, you can always travel the extra 15 minutes or so to arcades, bowling alleys, mini-golf spots, and theaters that are nearby. The school district is decent and staying as current as they can in terms of educational technology.

#20 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Town in New Mexico
- Rating 3.65 out of 5 20 reviews
Current Resident: Los Alamos is a great town for outdoor enthusiasts. Miles and miles of trails, great camping sites all over, rock climbing, skiing, rafting...The longest commute to work is 15 minutes. The town is very safe, and the schools are good. Schools used to be 10/10, but in the past few years, they went down to 7/10. My oldest child is much older than my youngest, and helping at schools with both of them, I can see the difference :(
The downside of Los Alamos, is that many local residents have a mentality of living here temporary, and do not invest much in local businesses, they shop "off the hill". For the town with a median household income twice the national average, Los Alamos invests very little in itself. Poor entertainment and shopping as a result.
The housing also looks a little depressing. The majority of the houses were built in the early era of Los Alamos, and only a few are remodeled. These old houses create a certain look, which may take some time to get used to.

#24 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of South Bend, IN
- Rating 3.72 out of 5 145 reviews
Current Resident: This is a bedroom community for the upper middle class in the South Bend area. Low crime, excellent schools. Drive outside Granger for shopping and work. Developments keep the poor people out and property values high by not allowing renting of property. Many people bring their kids to my development to trick-or-treat because they see it as safer than their own neighborhoods. I see that as a compliment and welcome them!
