LA Named Within Top 3 Cities to Trick-or-Treat in 2015
By Tali Wee
New Los Angeles loft owners may be unaware of the city’s reputation as a Halloween hot
spot. Again this year, Los Angeles made the list of top 20 cities to go trick-or-treating. In fact, it ranked third place behind San Francisco, the five-time winner, and San Jose.
Each year, Zillow compiles a list of cities and neighborhoods for folks to trick or treat to earn the most candy in the shortest amount of time with the fewest safety concerns. No one wants to spend their Halloween night walking door to door for hours without returning home with a monster bag of treats.
This year the study’s methodology improved with the addition of home values, population of residents ages 15 years or younger and proximity of homes to each other. The extra factors indicate neighborhoods where residents are able to spend money on candy and trick-or-treaters have the least amount of walking for the greatest reward.
The top neighborhoods in Los Angeles this year include: Pacific Palisades, Beverly Glen, Brentwood, Cheviot Hills and Beverlywood.
If you’re living near one of these neighborhoods, prepare to experience costumed kiddos at your door this Saturday night. Or, plan to take your children out to stock up on Halloween loot. What better way to get to know your new neighbors than on a festive night walking through the community?
Alternatively, if you’re planning to sell your loft this season, jump on the trick-or-treating bandwagon and open your doors widely for visitors to peer inside. Make the loft a spectacle, cleaned to perfection with attention-grabbing spooky music and the best candy on the block. Kids will drag their parents to your door.
Conversely, if you’re on the market to buy in one of these locations, use the night out to let your eyes wander into houses and assess their local home value.
Regardless of your buying, selling or owning circumstances, Los Angeles is one of the prime locations to trick-or-treat this year.
