TruliaⓇ, a home and neighborhood site for homebuyers and renters, today announces the national and local winners of The 2018 Neighborly Awards. Nearly 10,000 neighborhoods spanning coast to coast were ranked based on more than 20 million written reviews and answered polls by participating locals on Trulia Neighborhoods' What Locals Say feature.
"People take great pride in where they live. In fact, many buyers and renters say the neighborhood mattered just as much as the house when they were searching for a home," said Tim Correia, Trulia's senior vice president and general manager. "Every day, people tell us why they love their neighborhood. Using these insights, we created The Neighborlys to celebrate America's most beloved neighborhoods and to showcase what makes them so special to the people who live there."
With The Neighborly Awards, Trulia aims to shine a light on the neighborhoods that locals love most with the goal of inspiring buyers and renters in their home search. National and local winners in 18 major housing markets were identified using owned data in the following categories: friendliest neighbors, dog-friendliest, most holiday spirit, best social calendar, most walkable, and kid-friendliest.

Trulia Neighborly Awards Methodology**
Designed to helps prospective buyers and renters quickly grasp if a neighborhood has the right fit and feel for their lifestyle, Trulia Neighborhood's What Locals Say feature surfaces insights straight from the people who know the neighborhood best: locals. The feature provides both written neighborhood reviews and feedback on topics we know prospective buyers and renters care about, like if there is easy parking, or if people talk to their neighbors, or decorate their homes for the holidays.
To determine which neighborhoods were most beloved by locals, Trulia ranked nearly 10,000 neighborhoods using more than 20 million answered polls from Trulia Neighborhood's What Locals Say feature. Written reviews were used to help vet each winning neighborhood but were not factored into the rankings.
National and local winners in 18 major housing markets were selected based on positive local reviews to the questions below, then ranked by the highest number of respondents.
To win, a neighborhood needed to have at least 30 local reviews and at least a 75% positive response. All percentages are based on time of publish. For more information on What Locals Say (here) and Trulia Neighborhoods (here).
