Is your neighborhood Normcore? Do you have any idea what that means?

by Dan Rafter

Are you a fan of Normcore? That’s a fashion trend in which people celebrate wearing unpretentious, average-looking clothing. Think blue jeans and a t-shirt. The basis of Normcore? Finding happiness in being nothing special.

Online foreclosure site RealtyTrac recently considered what Normcore would mean if applied to real estate. RealtyTrac analyzed neighborhoods across the country to find those that were the most average — or normal, if you prefer — when it comes to housing values, home size, the years in which homes were built and the academic performance of local schools.

The lesson here? Sometimes a nice normal, average neighborhood is the perfect one for you and your family.

Check out the graphic below provided by RealtyTrac. There aren’t a ton of Midwest neighborhoods that rank high in the company’s Normcore study, though places like Normal, Ill. (of course); Cedarville, Ohio; Bloomington, Ind.; and Oxford, Ohio, did make the list of best Normcore neighborhoods.
