Hottest Neighborhoods to Watch
Americans are searching for affordable homes and they’re increasingly looking to the southeast to find them. The majority of Redfin’s hottest neighborhoods to watch in 2020 have median home sale prices of less than $500,000, and half are in the southeast states of Virginia, Florida, North Carolina and Tennessee.
The 2020 watch list was developed by identifying the neighborhoods with the greatest year-over-year growth in listing pageviews on Redfin.com and speaking with agents about what areas are seeing rising interest from homebuyers. Some of the neighborhoods included may not meet the conventional definition of “hot,” but are still trending among homebuyers.
Median sale price: $182,300
Median sale price for metro area: $190,000
Percent of homes that sold above list price: 28.3%
Median days on market: 10
“Poplar Grove is blowing up. First-time homebuyers are moving here to start families, as it’s extremely affordable and close to areas where they enjoy hanging out, like Fountain Square, Downtown Indianapolis and Irvington,” Redfin Indianapolis market manager Jake Johnson said. “The city of Indianapolis has spent significant money making the southeast side of downtown more accessible, adding walking trails, multi-use projects, better roads, etc.”
