We've analyzed thousands of resident reviews to determine the top 25 rated cities within the U.S in conjunction to their recommend score. Learn what factors set these top cities apart from the rest!
The top two factors that heavily influence the overall experience and willingness to recommend a community is the Office Staff and Maintenance. With the average for the top cities being 4.53 out of 5 vs. the national average score of 3.23 out of 5. In addition, maintenance was the second factor that set these communities apart. With the top 25 cities averaging a score of 4.55 out of 5 vs. the national average of 3.33 out of 5.
When digging a little further, the overall sentiment was of the top-rated cities were rated 1 out of 4 reviews describing their office staff as "friendly" and 1 out of 7 reviews describing their apartment as "well maintained".
To calculate results, we used the lower bound of the "Wilson Score" confidence interval rather than the "average" to calculate recommend scores. For cities with fewer reviews, we determined, with 95% confidence, that the number of reviews was significant enough to represent the percentage the city was recommended.
