This Is the Best Place to Buy a House in New York

This Westchester suburb is officially the tops when it comes to owning your own little lawn, according to these rankings.

Ratings juggernaut Niche just released their 2019 ‘Best Places’ numbers, and one Westchester town is once again riding high.

Using an exhaustive formula that weighs everything from home-value-to-income ratio, public school ratings, cost of living, crime rates, property taxes, and even the average age of newer and total residents, it was determined that Chappaqua is — quantifiably — the #1 best place in all of New York State to buy a home.

With A+ public school and housing grades, and a population of only 1,298, the town was also ranked the #6 Best Place to Raise a Family out of more than 900 municipalities, up from #15 just last year. Chappaqua also ranked #24 for New York in overall best places to live, placing it in the top 0.4 percent.
