SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — America's Finest City is also considered America's friendliest city, according to a recent survey by OfferUp.

San Diego ranked first on the list of friendliest U.S. cities with 80% of users of the mobile marketplace app, OfferUp's 2019 Good Neighbor Report said. The national average of users rated friendly by another user was 75% in comparison.

Between Sept. 12-16, the site surveyed more than 2,000 people who use the marketplace app in their communities.

The survey also went into how neighbors interact overall. When asked how political beliefs affect interactions, more than 60% said their political affiliation never affects their relationships with neighbors.

And despite social media, 21% of respondents say they always communicate in-person with neighbors. About 30% said they do so often and 29% said sometimes. About 67% also said they have never avoided a neighbor on purpose.

"The results affirm the thousands of stories we’ve heard from people across the country who have built meaningful bonds with neighbors through our marketplace," the survey said. "Even in these divisive times, we’re hopeful about the health of America’s communities."
