Looking to move to a city with growth potential? It might not be where you think. Trulia has compiled a list of the top 10 real estate markets poised for growth in 2017 based on five key metrics including high affordability, strong job growth, low vacancy rates, home searches on Trulia, and, because of the 2016 election’s outcome, a big population of Republicans. Half of the cities are located in Florida, so it might be a great time to fly south for the winter (and beyond!), with the other cities being scattered throughout the Midwest, South, and Southwest.
Here’s what local real estate experts have to say about the 10 markets Trulia predicts are poised for major growth. Take a cue from the rapid rise of previously trending cities like San Francisco, CA, and New York, NY, and jump on these areas while they’re hot.
