Yukon has long offered attractive living close to the Oklahoma City metro. And now more people are noticing.
The community recently came in at No. 42 in a study of 1,500 suburbs by Coldwell Banker.
Oklahoma communities making the cut include, Broken Arrow (15th), Bartlesville (30), Stillwater (39), and Moore (45).
Coldwell Banker partnered with Onboard Informatics, a leading provider of trusted real estate information and technology solutions, to identify the Coldwell Banker Best Places to Live for “Booming Suburbs.”
For each category in the Coldwell Banker Best Places to Live series, each location was assigned a score based on 15-20 attributes selected by Coldwell Banker and Onboard Informatics. Some of the attributes for the Booming Suburbs ranking/score include access to suburban amenities (grocery stores, banks, etc.), proximity to good schools, commuting by car and community safety.
Additional attributes include a low unemployment score, growth in employed persons and positive change over time in employment (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics). The resulting Booming Suburbs list includes only those suburbs that have a population greater than or equal to 22,275. While categories in the Coldwell Banker Best Places to Live series share many underlying attributes, each category is defined and calculated independently.
