As consumers seek value while remaining near a major metro, the California metros of Vallejo, Yuba City, and Stockton topped our hottest markets ranking.
Golden State real estate has seen ups and downs in recent years, and based on this month’s analysis of data on realtor.com®, it seems to be staging a comeback—but this time, the spotlight is on a different kind of metro.
California’s job opportunities, great weather, and beautiful landscapes used to be enough of a lure for home seekers to balance out prices that were among the highest in the nation. California markets, including San Francisco and San Jose, two of the most expensive markets in the nation, routinely dominated half of realtor.com’s monthly roundup of the hottest markets in real estate. This ranking shows the metro areas where homes move fastest off the market and listings get the most views on our site.
