Trulia published a list of the hottest real estate markets to watch and several of the markets were located on Florida’s coasts. The ranking was based off of 100 of the largest metro areas in the United States that met this criteria: high affordability, high search interest, high job growth, a decreasing vacancy rate, and a majority of the population that is happy with the last presidential election. Here are some of the Florida markets that made the list and why.
Jacksonville not only made this list of Florida markets but it also topped the list of all the markets in the country. This market has a high job growth rate, it’s affordability, and there’s a high interest to move here.
Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Florida
With its sunny shores and high job growth, it’s no wonder Cape Coral-Fort Myers came in second on both the Florida list and the list overall.
Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach, Florida
Florida has the top three markets in the United States, with the Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach coming in third. The job rate here matches that of Cape Coral-Fort Myers. The ratio of people moving away and moving in is also great.
Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida
With great job growth and affordable living, the metro area of Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida comes in fourth on this list but fifth overall.
North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida
The North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton market of Florida of course has the beautiful sunshiney weather but what pull people to this location is the full-time community. It’s not your typical vacation spot like so many other markets in the state. The schools (both primary and university) and the small businesses are major factors of building this strong community.
