These 25 Housing Markets Are Still Very Hot

There have been mixed signals in the United States housing market in 2019. Some cities are continuing to see the post-housing crash momentum carry them onward, while in others, housing markets have markedly cooled down. In this study, we analyzed every city tracked by Zillow for its average number of days on Zillow and its buyer-seller index. The average number of days the house is on Zillow serves as a metric for average time spent on the market before being sold. The buyer-seller index is a score that’s on a range from 0 to 10, with 10 meaning the housing market is a complete seller’s market, while 0 indicates a buyer’s market. For this study, the fewer the days on Zillow and the greater the seller’s market score, the hotter the housing market.

Over two thousand cities were analyzed, which was then narrowed down to the 200-largest housing markets. Find out which housing markets are so hot they’re ideal for flipping.
