By MarketWatch





Is your geographic area the most livable? Affordable? Sexiest? Healthiest? Most stressful? Kid-friendly? No matter how many "best-of" lists you've seen before, it's hard to ignore the latest city-ranking surveys that can make or break a town's collective identity, at least for a few months until the media attention dies down. Chalk it up to a combination of curiosity, vanity and lifestyle fantasizing.

Of course, these lists serve multiple purposes, not least of which is marketing, real-estate reporter Amy Hoak found. Check out her story and accompanying slide show to see which cities have attracted accolades for myriad characteristics, and which cities may wish for a little less exposure as they work to improve their reputations.

And if you've been wondering if the worst of the foreclosure crisis is behind us, read Brett Arends' story for his take on how to protect yourself from unscrupulous lenders. Plus, if you're one of the millions of Americans taking care of a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, don't miss today's Health Matters blog post on a free service that aims to make the experience less lonely and intimidating.

Given the proliferation of these "best of" city lists, I assume they mean — or can mean — big business. But I have yet to hear from anyone who's picked up and moved because of them.
