10 housing markets to keep an eye on in 2018

These cities are poised to be hot homebuyer destinations in the coming year…

Trulia looked at the top 100 largest U.S. markets and chose the top 10 that are poised for growth in 2018 based on:
  • Strong job growth over the past year — prosperity and opportunity
  • Low vacancy rates — supply doesn’t exceed demand
  • High starter home affordability — first-time buyers have a chance to purchase a home
  • More inbound home searches on Trulia than outbound — how popular the market is
  • A large share of the adult population under 35 — a growing homebuying population
Based on these metrics, here are Trulia’s picks:
