A new study found that Peabody is one of the best cities to live in Massachusetts.
Credit Donkey, a company that provides credit report information to consumers, focused on five key factors:
- Odds of being a victim of a violent crime
- Commute time
- Residents who attended some college
- Restaurants per capita
Peabody ranked fifth on the list for best cities to live in Massachusetts, according to Credit Donkey.
Here’s why Peabody received high marks:
“Another community located in the North Shore suburban region, Peabody is a retreat from the big city life for both students and professionals alike. Peabody once made the Forbes magazine top 100 list of best places to live in 2012, thanks to its high median income levels and below average home prices. That’s a designation we believe is well deserved.”
Beverly ranked number one on the study.
