Satisfacts released a list of the Top 25 Recommended Cities and three North Carolina cities were included: Holly Springs (#7), Kernersville (#12) and Holly Springs (#18). Here’s how SatisFacts described their process in creating the list:
The top two factors that heavily influence the overall experience and willingness to recommend a community is the Office Staff and Maintenance. With the average for the top cities being 4.53 out of 5 vs. the national average score of 3.23 out of 5. In addition, maintenance was the second factor that set these communities apart. With the top 25 cities averaging a score of 4.55 out of 5 vs. the national average of 3.33 out of 5.
To calculate results, we used the lower bound of the “Wilson Score” confidence interval rather than the “average” to calculate recommend scores. For cities with fewer reviews, we determined, with 95% confidence, that the number of reviews was significant enough to represent the percentage the city was recommended.
