Zillow recently named its top 10 hottest real estate markets for 2018. The results offer a revealing snapshot of where Americans are moving and why, along with a breakdown of specific factors that catapult markets onto Zillow’s “hot” list.
Tech hubs San Jose, San Francisco, Seattle and Denver round out the top 10, along with several southeastern cities boosted by the finance, research and healthcare industries. Charlotte and Dallas—both Roofstock markets—made the cut based on their thriving economies and population growth.
“Charlotte and Dallas are strong markets for us and we continue to see high demand for single-family rental (SFR) investment properties in those areas,” observed Roofstock CEO Gary Beasley. “Looking ahead, I think other noteworthy markets for SFR investing include the Las Vegas, Tampa and Atlanta metro areas. These markets are forecasted to perform well in 2020 in terms of rent and home price growth.”
