Halloween is right around the corner! We’re continuing our spooky housing coverage with a topic that’s critical for all real estate professionals: what are the best and worst cities for vampires to live in? To answer this important question, Lawn Love recently released a study of the 200 biggest U.S. cities and ranked them based on several key indicators.

The website looked for cities with many casket suppliers, blood centers and homes with basements on the market. Other vampire-welcoming factors that Lawn Love looked for include: several cloudy days, few churches and no garlic festivals.

Naperville, Illinois took the top spot in the study. According to Lawn Love, the city has the perfect balance between cloud cover, available basements and an abundant blood supply. The worst city for vampires? Tempe, Arizona, which, like many desert cities on the list, doesn’t have ideal conditions for vampires, with high levels of sunshine, few basements and lack of blood drives.

Another interesting takeaway from the study is that most of the cities in the top 10 list are located in the Midwest, such as Omaha, Nebraska (No. 5), St. Paul, Minnesota (No. 7) and Columbus, Ohio (No. 8). This is thanks in large part to a high number of blood drives and basements, and a low amount of yearly sunshine and spice shops. These are the 10 best cities for vampires:

Although this study is satirical, Lawn Love emphasizes the fact that there is a national blood shortage in the U.S. and suggests readers donate blood if they are healthy enough to do so. To view the full study and for a full breakdown of the company's methodology, click here.
