For the third consecutive year, San Francisco takes the prize as Zillow’s top US city for trick-or-treating. To help identify locations that could potentially dish out the most candy and present the least amount of safety and walking concerns, Zillow determines their rankings based on four categories of equal value: the Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score, and local crime data from Relocation Essentials.
Other California cities that land in the top 20 are San Jose (#4) and Los Angeles (#6) each moving up a spot from last year, as well as San Diego (#12).
Curious which part of town takes the crown? Zillow also includes in their rankings the top five neighborhoods per city. San Francisco’s may surprise you:
#5- Glen Park
#4- Presidio Heights
#3- Cow Hollow
#2- Sea Cliff
#1- Noe Valley
Zillow’s ranking is, of course, just one way of looking at it. We’ve gotten feedback that lists Cole Valley, St. Francis Wood, and West Portal as tried and true. We’d love to hear more – chime in with your pick!
