30 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Town in Nevada
Current Resident: What I like about Battle Mountain is that it is a very supportive and small community. Families are mostly all good friends with one another and it's somewhat of a diverse town. I like how I can feel safe mostly everywhere I go and how there is not a lot of traffic when I commute to school or practice. What I hope that will change about this town is the amount of job opportunities and the safety in our high school. Our high school has rarely had problems, but it still isn't as safe as it should be, but they are working on that now.

- Neighborhood in Kansas City, MO
Niche User: This a fantatstic community and theres proof of that in the growth of homes and businesses that are being built in the arear. The only downside is the amount of traffic can be overwhelming if your not used to city life. This used to be a very quite community but since it has a great school system the growth has exploded here so getting around to do errands can be time consuming. Other than that a wonderful community for growing families.

- Town in Pennsylvania
Niche User: I love Erie, Pennsylvania with all my heart, I really do. It's beautiful here, I don't know who could come here and not say that. The only thing I would want to change about this place is the weather. We strike number one on the national snow globe contest every year. Sometimes the weather is just a bit extreme to be living in, but we all manage to get through it every year. Besides the weather Erie has been a great place that I have ad the opportunity to live. We have Presque Isle State Park, it's 13 miles of free beaches to swim at all summer. It's one of the key points of Erie that everyone goes to at least a couple times every summer. We can't leave out all the great people that live here too. We have some extraordinary people in this city who are capable of anything! We are Erie proud!

- Town in Michigan
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.

Current Resident: I moved here and love it here. There is a huge park where my dog and I can Jog which has a pond and an outdoor amphitheater ,easy access to 202,etc...and so many nice people and dogs.

My dog has vast areas to play and see his "buddies" and there's an amazing dog walking company here(dogewalk.com) that gives my boy 2 walks a day at a great price! Great schools,huge park,dog fun...what else is there!

- Town in Michigan
Current Resident: I love everything about Okemos! I grew up here and hope to raise my family here as well. The public schools are by far the best in Mid-Michigan. I felt extremely prepared to go into college and was well above many other students. The math classes I took in college were even easier than the ones I took at Okemos. In addition, it is very safe and clean. There are some good restaurants, my favorite being Dusty's, but this is an area I think they can improve in.

Taylor Lake Village

- Suburb of Houston, TX
Niche User: The suburban area outside of Houston that I live in is a bit of a tourist attraction because of NASA and Johnson Space Center being so close by. The families that populate my area of town, while very diverse, are honeslty some of the freindliest people around. Maybe it's just out Southern Texas charm, but I rarely feel unsafe or unwelcome in my everyday life. The restaurants that I frequent know me by name and usually know my order as well. I have in fact had oppurtunities to move elsewhere in the state and in the country, but although I would consider the adventure, I would always ultimatey rather live here. I will be moving away for college, but I think when I get a little older and decide to settle down, this is a great place to raise kids and make friends. Property vaues are increasing as people come to this realization, but it will definitely be worth it.

- Suburb of Grand Rapids, MI
Current Resident: I love that Forest HIlls is such a safe community. They have a great school system, and the and it is extremely family friendly. It is quite pricey, and the society as a whole is very affluent. There are lots of opportunities for kids to play sports and participate in clubs, and many school options. There are Spanish Immersion and Mandarin Immersion school programs available nearby. The location is ideal, since it is a few minute's drive from Grand Rapids, but not too close, and relatively close to Lake Michigan.

- Suburb of Cincinnati, OH
Niche User: Where I lived, the people were really kind and generous and so very welcoming when my family moved in. The school district was rated excellent every year by the state and I didn't see it changing any time soon. My high school, Turpin High School, won the silver award for being one of the highest ranked schools in the nation. Children definitely receive a high quality of education in a safe and inviting environment. There was also very many choices for entertainment and fun things to do. My family personally loved to go to the Reds games and I loved to go to Newport and look around and visit the aquarium. There were many safe and beautiful parks and many fun school events. There were also many opportunities to give back to the community and serve others which I absolutely loved. I am very grateful that I grew up in Anderson township. I always felt safe and at home and happy. I received an excellent education that is helping me now through college. I would do it all over and move to Anderson with my family if I got the chance. The future only looks brighter.
