Magazine names Fishers ‘top affordable suburb’

Fishers has been named America’s “best affordable suburb” by Bloomberg BusinessWeek in a survey published this week.

The article gives the town north of Indianapolis high grades for “livability, safety, education, and economic performance.”

The magazine said it evaluated 863 communities according to a range of factors developed with New York-based real estate data company Onboard Informatics. Those factors include living expenses, income, crime rate, schools, commute, local economy, racial diversity, and green space.

Fishers scored high in every category.

The survey also lists the top affordable suburb in every state. Last year, Pewaukee, Wis., a small Milwaukee suburb, topped the national list and Zionsville was named top affordable suburb in Indiana.
