The Trick or Treat Test

October 9, 2014

As kids, we all knew the best trick or treating neighborhoods out there. You know, the ones where residents gave away full sized candy bars or dollar bills. Well, it turns out, the quality of the trick or treating in an area can be an informal indicator of how well planned it is. If there are hordes of costumed kids going door to door, chances are the neighborhood is a great one, in terms of walkability, safety, and community, but if there are only a few teens with pillowcases, and lots of houses with their front porch lights off, the neighborhood may not be so great.

If you’re searching for a home, the trick or treat test is a great way to decide if a particular neighborhood is right for you. Give it a try!
