Realtor.com® a leading online real estate destination operated by News Corp subsidiary Move Inc., has announced its third annual list of the Hottest ZIP Codes in America, which illustrates the power of millennial gravitation toward affordable suburbs with local “it” factors.

Realtor.com® analyzed 32,000 ZIP codes based on the time it takes properties to sell and how frequently homes are viewed in each ZIP code. Homes in this year’s top 10 hottest markets sell in an average of 21-50 days faster than in the rest of the country. Realtor.com® users view home listings in these markets four times more often than those in the rest of the country. One ZIP code was included per metro area.

“While low inventory is a challenge, millennials are the largest generation in U.S. history and they are flexing their muscle when it comes to the housing market,” said Danielle Hale, chief economist for realtor.com®. “Increasingly, the hottest housing markets are the ones that appeal to millennial preferences, and right now the standouts are relatively affordable suburbs with local ‘it’ factors such as hiking trails, great restaurants, and nightlife. With the largest cohort of millennials turning 30 in 2020, we can expect these types of areas to stay in demand in the years to come.”
