Patch Blog: Top Metro Areas for Real Estate Sales

On a national level, some real estate markets are seeing rising prices and strong local economies which have brought a high dollar volume in home sales.

The state of the housing market may seem glum to some out there.  However, there actually are real estate professionals working hard and doing a lot of real estate business.  On a national level, some real estate markets are seeing rising prices and strong local economies which have brought a high dollar volume in home sales in these areas according to Andrea V. Brambila of Inman News.   Brambila and Inman News studied many factors including total sales, median sales price, and real estate licensee data in metro areas across the U.S and came up with a  “top 10” list of areas where real estate professionals are succeeding in the highest number of sales and in some cases rising home values.  Of the top cities, nearly half are in the West and 9 of 10 are projected to see double digit population growth through the next 9 years.

So where is the real estate market taking off?  The top metro areas according to Inman News from number one area to 10 are: Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, Wash.; Fort Worth-Arlington, Texas; Denver-Aurora-Broomfield, Colo.; Salt Lake City; San Antonio-New Braunfels, Texas; Pittsburgh; Dallas-Plano-Irving, Texas; Kansas City Mo.-Kan.; Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos, Texas; and Nashville-Davidson--Murfreesboro--Franklin, Tenn.
