To determine the best hottest real estate markets in the U.S., WalletHub compared 300 cities of varying sizes across 18 key housing-market attractiveness and economic strength indicators. The data set ranges from median home-price appreciation to job growth.

Explains the website, “If you aim for long-term growth, equity, and profit, you’ll need to look beyond tangible factors like square footage and style. Those factors certainly drive up property values. From an investor’s standpoint, though, they hold less significance than historical market trends and the economic health of residents.”
