#2 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of Denver, CO
- 6 reviews
Current Resident: I have lived in this neighborhood for 30 years and I love the proximity of it to all areas of Metro Denver. Where I live is close to the light rail, Highline Canal, and several shopping areas, it's like a mini city in and of itself. The only major dislike I have for the area and the state, in general, is that housing has become so expensive, it is difficult to live in the vicinity of Denver without having to work two jobs or have a six-figure income. Many people are getting priced out of their homes and apartments due to the influx of people moving in and a housing shortage. Also, traffic has become a nightmare!

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.

- Suburb of St. Louis, MO

Current Resident: Glendale is a small, family-friendly community that is a part of Webster and (majority) Kirkwood schools. Many of the small older homes are getting knocked down to build huge $700k+ four bedroom, three bath homes on these small lots. The community is great, especially if you have kids, but everyone who lives on my street looks the same as me, yet the schools try to push diversity by bussing in kids from the city, while in the long run Kirkwood really should be pushing and helping black and brown families move to the area.

- Town in Indiana
- 268 reviews
Current Resident: We moved to Carmel from the northeast, and at the time I was wary of moving to Indiana - a state I knew nothing about other than farms. Boy, was I wrong. Carmel is beautiful- sophisticated, charming, kind, innovative and stocked with families all working to create a beautiful life for their kids and themselves. Infrastructure is top notch and well-planned, the homes and neighborhoods are gorgeous and affordable, the area is filled with good, high-paying jobs, the public school facilities are amazing, and quality of teaching and programs offered - both public and community programs- are outstanding. Like another poster said, come visit- you will be amazed! I’ve met so many transplants, and some who moved just after seeing Carmel during a visit with friends. I can’t imagine another city offering the quality of life we have in Carmel, we are so grateful to live here. This city is the poster child of forward-thinking leadership as well as listening to what it’s residents want.

- Suburb of South Bend, IN
- 144 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!

- Suburb of Indianapolis, IN
- 372 reviews
Current Resident: I’ve lived in Fishers my whole life. It’s a very neat little community and I love it with all my heart. The people are very friendly and there are a lot of job opportunities in the restaurant and business industries. Construction and improvements are being made often to make Fishers a better community in which to live and work. The downtown area is a short walk away from most neighborhoods, and it’s only a short drive to Indianapolis. I would really recommend it to anyone looking for a place to crash for the weekend or to live in after retirement. It’s just a really great community!

- Town in New Mexico

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.

#12 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of Huntsville, AL
- 210 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.

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.

Current Resident: Madeira is a great small town for every type of life style. The school system there is phenomenal from K-12 with many students going on to attend prestigious universities. This does make the school very hyper competitive though which can be hard for some students. There are also a variety of activities in the summer for families like free summer concerts, Shakespeare in the park, and the wiffle ball league. There is also a great sense of community with everyone in the town. Everyone comes out for the football games on Friday nights in the falls and is always there to help each other in their time of need. Overall, Madeira is a great small town to live in.

Current Resident: Bentonville is a town with a rich history. In downtown Bentonville, there is the first ever Walmart that was built. Sam Walton left a huge mark on the beautiful town that impacts our lifestyle in the town even to this day! The infamous Crystal Bridges Art Museum is also in this town, and it is a must to see! As more people are moving in, more schools are having to be built, which is increasing the property tax along with other costs. I would want to see these costs to go down, but other than that, Bentonville Arkansas is a wonderful place and it is growing at a very positive rate! A wonderful place to live in!

Current Resident: It is your typical suburban neighborhood. It is very safe with crime being few and far between, the local system is one of the best in the state, and shopping is only a couple minutes away. If you don't have a car you will find it impossible to move around as public transit is nonexistent.

- Suburb of Louisville, KY

Current Resident: Great schools. Close to cities and culture, but removed enough to keep the small town vibe.
Neighborhoods are peaceful and friendly...although avoid Celebration Park as they can get a bit carried away (if you park wrong, they will complain. Sneeze and everyone knows. And don’t dare have a party unless they are all invited! Too much HOA power for the busybodies).
But a terrific little town for families and amazing schools!

Nearby Resident: Clean, neat, safe. I love this town! This area is still growing and adding new, quality shops. Despite all the bad press MS gets for education, the school systems in the Madison area are considered some of the best public schools in the nation. I love living here and raising my children here.

Current Resident: Grosse Pointe Woods is a lovely place to be in. You can take a walk down any street and marvel at the beauty of the houses and their surroundings. In addition, the sky over the lake is absolutely stunning in the mornings and evenings. Not only is Grosse Pointe a nice place to live because of its beauty, but also because the city takes very good care of its residents' safety. The police and safety department are always looking out for us and keeping our streets safe.
GPW is full of little shops, restaurants, and cafes for all your desires just up on Mack.

Current Resident: Harvest, Alabama is definitely a place that I would recommend for a family to reside. It is a quiet, up and coming town where everyone is friendly. It is approximately 15 minutes from Huntsville, Alabama and 10 minutes from Madison, Alabama. With that being said, the larger cities are begging to expand and is causing Harvest to expand as well. The public schools take a genuine interest in the development of every child's education.

Current Resident: Berkley, MI is a growing city in the Metro Detroit area of which I am proud to live in! Downtown Berkley is becoming a hot spot for those looking to support small businesses, with restaurants, storefronts, and much more! The location is perfect to settle down and start a family or even begin a career, as it surrounds many opportunities. Though I would like to see a grocery store pop up in this city, I believe that Berkley is a bang for your buck!
