Homes.com compiled a list of 50 suburbs based on the U.S. census’s list of fastest-growing towns in each state.
To determine this list, the the study looked at the nine ranking factors for each city including median listing price, median square footage, housing price-to-income ratio, number of homes for sale per capita, average yard size in acres, work-from-home score, race and ethnic diversity levels, school district score, and crime index.
There were assigned weights to each factor based on level of significance to a suburban homebuyer and remote worker. Scores were calculated by the sum of the nine weighted factors, which gave an overall score for each city. Woodstock scored 40.69 out of the highest possible 50 points.
