HALLOWEENUsing a special “Trick-or-Treat” index, Zillow came up with a list of the 20 top cities in the country and then the top five neighborhoods within those cities on where to find the best goodies. This index was created using three equally weighted data variables: median home value, housing density and the share of the population is ten year old and younger in a city that has a population of at least 500,000 people. So, according to this special research, it appears that Presido Heights located within San Francisco, CA is THE best place to don your costumes this year. If you don’t live near there, never fear as the other 19 best cities to ring doorbells are: San Jose, CA; Philadelphia, PA; Long Beach, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Baltimore, MD; Sacramento, CA; Washington, DC; Milwaukee, WI; Seattle, WA; Dallas, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Chicago, IL; San Diego, CA; Denver, CO; El Paso, TX; Las Vegas, NV; Charlotte, NC; Portland, OR and Mesa, AZ.
According to Zillow, “these cities are based on places where home values are high, there are plenty of kids under 10, and where homes are close together, meaning less walking while you’re going door-to-door.”
