Clovis has done it again.
The city is ranked No. 1 for the second consecutive year on Nerdwallet’s study of “Best Places for Young Families in Northern California.”
The San Francisco-based consumer advocacy website reassessed its list of best places for young families examining public school ratings, median home values from 2012, monthly homeownership costs, and median household income and income growth from 1999 to 2012.
Clovis took the top spot again with “a combination of affordable homes, highly ranked schools and long-term growth,” the study said.
The farmers markets and rodeo also help to showcase the community atmosphere every year.
Folsom, in Sacramento County, came in second again this year with highly-ranked public schools and relatively affordable homes. The Bay Area’s suburban community of Dublin appeared on the list for the first time at No. 3 knocking out Yuba from last year. Dublin’s good schools and direct access to jobs in the San Francisco were cited as making it a good place for families.
