5 Housing Markets Expected to Outshine All the Rest

Inman News released a report highlighting metro areas that are expected to “outshine many other markets in real estate performance this year.” 

In its report, Inman News scanned metro areas with populations over 150,000 to find where real estate sales volume is rising, job markets are growing, foreclosure activity is low, sales prices are appreciating, and home affordability is at high levels. 

Here are the metro areas topping the list, including the third quarter 2011 median sales price and the percentage change in sales price year-over-year. 

1. Raleigh-Cary, N.C.

Median sales price: $224,300

Median sales price change year-over-year: 7.3 percent
