There's something about that "Open House" sign that acts like a magnet. Whether you're looking for a new place to live, keeping tabs on real estate in your neighborhood, or just angling for a sneak peek at someone else's private domain, the lure of an open door is undeniable.

With Halloween around the corner, this week we look at homes in the best cities for trick or treating, as named by Zillow. It may sound glib, but finding the safest places for your little ghouls and goblins to roam this Hallow's Eve may actually help you make a more informed decision when it comes time to buy. The list takes into account median home value, walkability, population density and crime -- all of which play a role in the buying decision on any day of the year.
