Bolingbrook Makes List of Best Places to Own a Home in Illinois
Home ownership: It's part of the American dream.

And according a study by NerdWallet, if you're going to buy a house in Illinois, Bolingbrook is one of the best places to do it.

The village was No. 16 on NerdWallet's list of  "Best Places for Home Ownership in Illinois," ranking behind towns including Plainfield, Romeoville and Oswego.

According to the rankings, NerdWallet looked at three main questions:
  • Are homes available?
  • Can you afford to live there?
  • Is the area growing?
NerdWallet looked at 121 places in Illinois, and  towns were scored based on homeownership rate, selected monthly owner costs, median household income and population change from 2010-12. Bolingbrook's overall score was 69.2.

While Bolingbrook didn't make the top 10, towns that did include Romeoville Lockport and Tinley Park.
