The index also considered a neighborhood’s crime rate and school scores.
When taking everything into account, the Pine Ridge neighborhood of Naples took the very top spot. The neighborhood is known for its sprawling estate homes, some of which are priced in the multi-million dollar range.

According to industry reports, US luxury home prices surged sharply during the first few months of the year, spurred in part by a shortage of available luxury housing in places such as Naples.
