Financial technology company SmartAsset has released the rankings from its third annual Healthiest Housing Markets Study and Bellevue tops the list in the State of Nebraska and was ranked 58th in the nation.
SmartAsset is a financial technology company out of New York City that uses data to provide free, actionable advice on big financial decisions. Topics include home buying, renting, retirement, life insurance, taxes, student loans, investing and more. As of August 2016, Smart Asset’s Captivate Platform was reaching over 40 million people per month
The methodology used to determine the rankings in the Healthiest Housing Markets Study was based on the idea that, “a healthy housing market is both stable and affordable; homeowners in a healthy market should be able to easily sell their homes, with a low risk of losing money over the long run.” In order to find the healthiest housing markets in the country, SmartAsset considered the following four factors: stability, affordability, fluidity and risk of loss. The study measures market health by the average number of years’ residents spend in homes, home values, ease of sale, and the costs associated with ownership.
