WESTFIELD, NJ — Personal finance website NerdWallet called Westfield the 16th Best Place for Home Ownership in New Jersey in its recent ranking of places with 15,000 or more residents.

The site took home ownership rates, monthly homeowner costs, median home values and population change data (which shows if a population is growing) to come up with the rankings. Places with higher-than-average crime and environmental hazards were excluded from the top-20 ranking.
