The hottest markets: where in the US real estate is most often bought

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the housing market is growing. Several factors have contributed to the rise in popularity of the most attractive zip codes this year. These include a strong job market, the best price per square foot (meter), easy access to the metro. The report shows that 46% of home buyers are millennials. Writes about it USA Today.

Leading markets this year are giving home buyers more opportunities to invest in suburban areas, including Rochester (New York), Manchester and Concord (New Hampshire), Worcester (Massachusetts) and Columbus (Ohio).

The only two suburbs of major metropolitan areas are Peabody (Massachusetts, near Boston) and Farmington (Michigan, near Detroit).

The dwelling on this year's listing is 110 square feet (10,2 sq m) larger than the typical home for sale in the US, and the price per square foot (meter) averages 3,7% lower.

Demand in these markets comes from first-time homebuyers and trying to get on their feet. Experts say that thanks to the greater flexibility offered by remote workspaces, new buyers have more choices about where to live and can find larger homes at a much lower cost.

“These markets combine affordability and the ability to keep young people interested,” said Daniel Hale, chief economist at

“Millennials reach the age where they usually settle down, start a family and buy houses,” explains Hale. "This is a long-term demographic factor affecting the housing market."

“Many young people are looking for opportunities to become homeowners,” emphasizes the economist. "This is what contributes to the sustainable development of the housing market and will contribute to more moderate growth in home sales."

However, homes are selling quickly: 8 out of 10 homes on the list are bought in less than a week. This can be stressful for novice shoppers who don't quite understand what they're getting into, Hale says.

But there is good news.

“If you are buying for the first time in the market, it’s difficult because you’re making the biggest purchase of your life,” she says. "Fortunately, there are tools that can help with this, such as home price websites that hit the market right away."
