Children in western cities have edge in trick-or-treating

Kids in some cities may make out much better in some cities.

Kids in some cities may make out much better in some cities.

While most kids will have a good time going out in their costumes on Halloween, children out west will likely come back with a larger haul, according to a new report.

Zillow.com's Trick-or-Treat Housing Index ranked Seattle as the best city for candy-gathering in the country, and cities in California, Oregon and Colorado occupied each off the next five spots. Boston, Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Philadelphia were the only four East Coast cities to make the top 20.

While parents aren't going to base their moving decision on whether their children can come home with the best candy, the index does include a number of things they likely do factor into their relocation plans. The scores were based on four major factors: home values - because wealthier households are believed to give out the best candy - crime, housing density and the walkability of local neighborhoods.

Family and children play a very significant role in any moving decision. Census data shows that more than 26 percent of moving families cited family reasons as the main cause of their relocation.
