Do you ever fantasize about actually living in American television’s most exclusive zip code, “90210?” Beverly Hills may be cool, but plenty of other zip codes are hot.
In a study that takes a look at the nation’s most desirable real estate spots, Realtor.com found that home buyers are anxious to move from urban centers to more affordable and less densily populated suburbs.
The website ranked its real estate hot spots using two key criteria: 1) market demand, as measured by unique viewers per property on Realtor.com, and 2) the selling pace of the market, as measured by the number of days a listing remains active on Realtor.com.
Realtor.com’s market hotness rankings are based on listing data posted on its website from January to June. The list of top zip codes is limited to one zip code per metropolitan area.
Here, in ascending order, are the study’s top 10 hottest zip codes.
