WESTFIELD, Ind. — If you're thinking of moving, look no further than Westfield, Indiana!

Homes.com chose 50 suburbs from the U.S. Census's list of fastest growing towns in each state and ranked the homebuying criteria to determine the best suburbs to move to in 2021.

There were nine factors used to calculate the list: median list pricing, median square footage, housing price-to-income ratio, number of homes for sale per capita, average yard size (in acres), work-from-home score, race and ethnicity diversity levels, school district score, and crime index.

Westfield topped the list with a score of 44.24 — finishing more than 3 whole points ahead of the second place suburb.
