Happiness is a key factor in the emotional process of buying a new home.

A report released by Gallup this past year sought out the states and cities with the happiest people living among them. Gallup used data collected by interview with over 170,000 adults  across the United States to rank the Top 100 happiest cities in the nation. 

Virginia, as an entire state, made it into the 2nd Quintile, at #14 out of the 50. Narrowing down further, at least 4 different Virginia/DC cities made it onto the Top 100.

With Washington-Arlington-Alexandria at #9, Richmond at #21, and VA Beach-Norfolk at #79.

Using a tool titled the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, Gallup measured five different elements that categorize the way people feel about and experience their daily lives, including purpose, social, financial, community and physical. You can read the full report here.
