2018s Fastest-Growing Housing Markets

Las Vegas, Nevada

Home prices are projected to rise 7.9 in 2019, but the demand for houses might not follow. At the end of November 2018, approximately 7,000 single-family homes were listed without offers, up 54 from the previous year.

Rising interest rates, skyrocketing prices and a surplus of inventory will likely create a housing market thatrsquo;s favorable for buyers in 2019.

Atlanta, Georgia

Home values rose 13.3 in 2018, second only to Las Vegas. While the Las Vegas sellers market is starting to slow, many experts predict Atlantarsquo;s market will continue outperform the national average.

Homes in Atlanta are extremely affordable valued around 215,000 in November 2018, and housing inventory was down in 19.7 from the previous year. Buyers should expect competition, even as the overall U.S. housing market cools.

nbsp;

nbsp;

Indianapolis, Indiana

Indianapolis is quickly becoming a favorite city for real estate investors. A booming economy and strong job market helps support a healthy housing market for sellers.

Home values increased 12.7 in 2018 according to Zillow, yet the average home value was only 161,600 in November 2018. Affordable, reasonable Midwest home prices attract investors and first-time home buyers, while shrinking inventory ensures strong demand.

nbsp;

nbsp;

Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte, ranking 22nd on U.S. Newsrsquo; ldquo;Best Places to Liverdquo; list, attracts a young, hip demographic thatrsquo;s starting to enter the housing market. The thriving city saw a 11.48 increase in home values over 2018.

However, Zillow estimates home values wonrsquo;t see such dramatic increases in 2019 estimated at a 4.5 increase year over year.

nbsp;

nbsp;

San Jose, California

While other tech-centric real estate markets, such as Seattle, have been slowing down in recent years, San Jose was just named the hottest housing market in the U.S. for both 2018 and 2019.

Zillow estimates home values will increase a whopping 19.22 in 2019. As tech companies flock to the area and salaries continue to rise, the San Jose real estate market will remain incredibly competitive for buyers.
