Top Addresses in Westfield, NJ
What makes for a top address in Westfield, NJ?
Think about this:
Your realtor wants to show you two new houses. Without seeing the specs or knowing anything at all about the two properties, which home sounds more appealing: 24 Treetop Boulevard or 24 Treetop Road?

A recent national study seems to suggest that the suffix in your street address may indicate the value of your home. A national analysis of 10,000 homes for sales indicates that the top address suffixes (again, nationally) are:

The word “boulevard” comes from French and is associated with a broad lane with trees, flowers, and grass down either the sides or the center.
We have one Boulevard in Westfield, but it is more in the mold of Madonna and Beyonce—no suffix attached or required. As for value ranking in the Westfield context, it’s Comme Ci Comme Ça.
Here’s the hyper-local suffix ranking, based on single family home sales throughout 2011-2012 with average sale price on the left:
