The nation's largest study exploring what makes homeowners happy where it matters most — in their homes.

How Happy Are Portland's Homeowners?

In the first-of-its-kind survey, homeowners from across the nation weighed in to tell HomeAdvisor how their overall happiness is influenced by where they live. We carefully analyzed their responses to assign a Happy Home Score to 50 U.S. states and 36 major metropolitan areas. The result is the most comprehensive look ever taken into where America's homeowners are happiest and why.
