Cities with the fastest-growing real estate markets in every state

Supply and demand drive the real estate market, affecting everything from building and lot values to availability for buyers and sellers. These forces are usually closely aligned with an area's economy, job market, population, demographics, location, interest rates, and several other constantly evolving factors. The 2008 housing market crash and subsequent recession put an enormous strain on the economy and real estate market; but today, things seem to be looking up in many areas around the nation.

Stacker put together a list of the fastest-growing real estate markets in every state using data from virtual real estate marketplace Zillow. We took the median home prices from November 2017 until October 2018 and then calculated the percentage change. The city from each of the 50 states with the highest percentage increase is listed here alphabetically. Read through the list and see if your state is on the up and up in terms of real estate!
