The top ten American cities for raising your family

As a real estate professional, we don’t have to tell you how frequently buyers are looking for a home that is “good” for their family. Kiplinger recently named their top 10 cities for raising a family based on job growth, healthy economies and vibrant local culture.

Additional information such as areas already filled with families with children, low crime rates, quality of public schools, and amount of parks were then considered.

The article notes that the list comprised of 10 cities “are not rankings. They are recommendations, based on our reporting and number-crunching.”

We want to know what you think of the top 10 list:

  • Ellicott City, MD
  • Ann Arbor, MI
  • College Station, TX
  • Kennewick, WA
  • Huntsville, AL
  • Madison, WI
  • Pocatello, ID
  • Rochester, MN (also featured in the 10 best cities for the next decade)
  • West Hartford, CT (also featured in the 10 best cities for the next decade)
  • Raleigh, NC

Every city has pockets of family friendly areas and areas that are less family friendly and of course fair housing laws prohibit discriminating or steering, but the above list gives you an idea of how the media is looking at cities for how family friendly they appear to be.
