After dominating Realtor.com’s hottest markets list in January, you’ll notice that not one California metro is even ranked on this May list. Why? Affordability is the key driving force for today’s buyers.

Midwest markets were all priced more than $100,000 below the national median. Three of the four least expensive hottest markets in May (Elkhart, Fort Wayne and Lafayette) were in Indiana.
Connecticut also came through with affordability as New Haven, Hartford and Norwich all had median prices below the national median.
Hottest Markets Where Homes Sell Fastest & High Number of Viewers
Realtor.com designs its Hottest Housing Market rankings to “reward” the places where homes sell the fastest and have the most views. Overall, these top twenty metros received 1.5 to 3.2 times the number of viewers per home for sale compared to the national rate.
