Stockton Top Contender on List of the Hottest Housing Markets in 2018
December 5, 2017
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and are looking for a house that you can afford to buy, look
no further. Of the top 10 hottest housing markets for 2018 compiled by Realtor.com, Stockton's housing market is ranked number four.
Described in the analysis as "becoming the place to be," Stockton is finally coming into its own. Realtor.com asked its experts the questions that everyone wants to know when buying a house:
What are the hot markets where you can still afford to buy? Which are ones where home prices are almost certain to appreciate? The ones with burgeoning economies and lots of job growth? The ones where you actually want to live?
Among the expected locations, like Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Charlotte, North Carolina, Stockton emerged as a top contender. Stockton, California, part of the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland, CA Combined Statistical Area, is home to a many people like yourself who work in Silicon Valley, but are seeking housing at reasonable cost. Priced out of San Francisco, where the median cost of a house is $1.3 million, you can still buy a home here for a fourth of that amount.
