Move Aside Bustling Cities – These New Markets Are Where Homeowners Want to Live
It’s been known that cities like New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles are the areas that prospective homeowners love to flock to. However, most homebuyers are jumping ship and moving inland.
A realtor.com survey found the top five ZIP codes in up-and-coming neighborhoods – and they’re mostly in suburban areas.
These areas sell on an average of 17 days, and the residences in the area are viewed online three times more often than the homes in the rest of the country. The number of households in the list are expected to grow 4.3% this year, which is faster than the national rate of 1.1%.
These neighborhoods offer lower priced homes and booming job markets close to city centers. For millennials, this is gold – proximity to downtown and access to affordable homes are just some of the main features that this consumer base is wanting.
Here are the top five hottest ZIP codes:
- 49505 – Grand Rapids, Michigan
- 68144 – Omaha, Nebraska
- 83704 – Boise, Idaho
- 66203 – Shawnee, Kansas
- 14609 – Rochester, New York
