Well, so says Scientific American:
Planets More Habitable Than Earth May Be Common in Our Galaxy
Planets quite different from our own may be the best homes for life in the universe
Because earthlings still know of just one living world—our own—it makes some sense to use Earth as a template in the search for life elsewhere, such as in the most Earth-like regions of Mars or Jupiter’s watery moon Europa. Now, however, discoveries of potentially habitable planets orbiting stars other than our sun—exoplanets, that is—are challenging that geocentric approach.
The rest is paywalled. But before you get out your credit card, … why does this sound a lot like one of those real estate deals gone bust?
We don’t know if a habitable planet is born every minute, but at least one type of person is.
If you disagree, buy real estate you have never seen. Especially if it is going really, really cheap.

Don’t let Mars fool you. Those exoplanets teem with life!
