Best Places To Live If You Love March Madness

I love march madness. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve filled out my bracket in hopes to win some money, or a little bit of bragging rights over my family and friends. Growing up in Dayton had its perks as well. We always got to  see the “play in game”. Over the years that game has become more important and it became some what of a tradition.

 

 

I love march madness. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve filled out my bracket in hopes to win some money, or a little bit of bragging rights over my family and friends. Growing up in Dayton had its perks as well. We always got to  see the “play in game”. Over the years that game has become more important and it became some what of a tradition.

 

It is crazy to think about but nearly 40 million Americans fill out a bracket and bet more than $2 billion on the assumption that they can pick and choose teams better than anybody else.

But where are the best places to live during the event?

Since buying a home is about more than what’s in between the four walls you purchased, SandPeak Realty decided to look at attributes that would make cities more fun for March Madness fanatics.

We considered:

  • Hosting NCAA Tournament Games: There’s nothing like live action, and cities that have hosted more regional games and Final Fours were rewarded.
  • NCAA Tournament Appearances: Cities that had nearby teams frequently participating in the postseason were ranked higher.
  • Final Four Teams: Let’s face it, everybody loves a winner.
  • Dining/Bars in City: There are so many games going on at once, so it helps having many bars around to see as many games as possible.
  • Avg. Home Price: Where can fans live affordably?

So, while the madness is about to get back underway, jump over to our Facebook page and let us know what you think of our list!
