places-to-live

Everyone knows that your house is one of, if not the most, priciest purchase of your life. When factoring in all the pros and cons that play into a potential homebuyer's schematic the list goes on and on with crime rates, education systems, etc, and they vary from state, city and suburb. Do you want coastal, wetland, humidity, aridity and desert landscaping, forests, winters, four seasons? In fact, the home buying process can be just down right inundating and overwhelming: not to mention it can rack up some serious stress.

Good News! According to CNNMoney.com and Money Magazine the poll for 2006's top 10 places to live is out. In the top ten there are some very interesting finds, as most are suburb towns located just on the outskirts (and thus, just miles away from the benefits) of major cities. The main benefit to the suburban areas of course, is generally significantly lower real-estate, pending the state and city of course, and lower population (and most often crime rates). So, if you're thinking about relocating, or if you're getting ready to purchase your first home, Flirting.com would like to help assist you with some important factoids concerning America's top 5 best cities for the year 2006.
