Looking to Move? Check out These Hot Neighborhoods

In real estate, location matters. Perhaps that’s why the saying goes: location, location, location. However, within each state and city there are hot neighborhoods and cold neighborhoods. If you’re looking to move, check out these destination neighborhoods!

Recently, Real Estate Broker Redfin released their top 10 hottest neighborhoods list.  The shocker? They’re ALL in California. Not only that, but 9 of the top 10 are in San Jose. The only outlier was in San Francisco. Yes, the California housing market sure is heating up.

The drawback of the top 10 list? Every single neighborhood had home prices north of $1 million. So, for those of us who aren’t looking to shell out that kind of cash, a new list of neighborhoods “within reach” was released.

These hot neighborhoods feature home priced that do not exceed the national median of $286,700. These neighborhoods are full of amenities and offer a diverse array of housing options.

According to Redfin, if you’re looking for a more affordable cost of living, here are the neighborhoods that are heating up.
