Coldwell Banker Real Estate has released the latest edition of its ongoing Best Places to Live series. This time, it’s for “suburbanites” and the city at the top of the list is Cherry Hills Village!  The town received the highest score in the nation with a nearly 100% home ownership rate and less than 20 minute average commute.

Coldwell Banker and Onboard Informatics analyzed trends based on data from more than 11,000 suburban areas.  The data revealed a glimpse into life in the suburbs, where many people own their homes, drive to work and spend approximately four times as much to prepare meals at home than go out to eat.

The following communities make up the Top 10 “Best Places to Live for Suburbanites,” scoring high on a range of attributes such as access to suburban amenities (grocery stores, banks, etc.), proximity to good schools, commuting by car and community safety:

1.      Cherry Hills Village, Colo.
2.     
Clyde Hill, Wash.
3.      Haworth, N.J.
4.      Englewood Cliffs, N.J.  
5.      Wolf Trap, Va.  
6.      Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J.  
7.      Indian Hills, Ky.  
8.      East Grand Rapids, Mich.
9.      Rossmoor, Calif.
10.  Huntington Woods, Mich.

The rankings were also held on a state level, with the Colorado cities of Cherry Hills Village ranking first, Genesee second, Castle Pines North third, Woodmoor fourth and Gleneagle fifth.

This is the second list released in the Coldwell Banker “Best Places to Live” series.  In July 2012 Coldwell Banker identified the “Best Places for Social Seekers,” and will be releasing rankings for Adventurers, Leisure Lovers and Culture Cravers in the coming months.
