Virginia Beach and Chesapeake Rank Among Best Cities for Family Buyers

Author: Dragas Marketing


When considering moving your family to a new city, it is important to keep in mind factors such as proximity to employment opportunities, healthcare options, quality of local education and the cost of living in a city. To help families searching for the right place to call home, Metrostudy, a housing market research and analysis firm, and WalletHub, a personal finance site, compiled their data to rank the top 10 cities for families looking for a new home. If you’re one of those families searching for a new home, the findings found that both Virginia Beach and Chesapeake are two of the most family-friendly cities to call home! In the WalletHub study used to rank these cities, 150 cities in the United States were measured using 36 key metrics. Housing, violent crime rates, poverty levels and divorce rates were among some of the metrics that were heavily rated. From there, Metrostudy took the top 10 cities, excluding Sioux Falls due to the limitation of available homes, from WalletHub’s ranking and re-ranked them based on median price for a new single-family home as of the second quarter of 2016. In the list of the 10 best cities for family buyers, Chesapeake ranks third with a median home price of $300,000, and Virginia Beach ranks seventh with a median price of $407,100.
