Most Americans don’t care about living near family

Property size, crime rates, school district and the existence of a nearby Whole Foods are among the many variables couples consider when shopping for a new home. Proximity of the in-laws? Not so much.

Topping the list of concerns for U.S. adults is home size, with some 70% of those with kids (and 66% of those without) citing it as the most important factor in a home search, in a new survey by real estate website Trulia and market research firm Harris Interactive. Crime rate, school district and length of commute were also top concerns for families. Perhaps more surprising, however, was that only 33% of adults with children and 29% of adults without said the location of family members is important.
