Five of the Hottest U.S. Real Estate Markets in 2017

Posted by Carrington Real Estate Services on March 13, 2017 at 10:43 PM

We are almost a quarter of the way through 2017, and the year is already living up to the lofty expectations that many had for it in terms of real estate sales. Local markets across the country are heating up, and homes are moving faster than ever while commanding top dollar prices.

While real estate has been selling particularly well across the country during the first few months of 2017, there are a few specific areas that have seen those sales increasing at even faster than average rates. If you are looking to identify the hottest real estate markets in the country during 2017, these five places are definitely where you need to be looking.



Fueled by the constantly growing number of baby boomers looking for a retirement destination, the Florida real estate market is absolutely booming. There are more than a half dozen cities in the Sunshine State that have found their way onto various lists of popular real estate markets, and the trend is only going to get better in Florida.

With more than a few places to choose from along both the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic Coast, the state has two distinct types of beachfront lifestyles for buyers to explore, and then there is the massive Orlando market where you can find some of the best deals in the entire country. No matter what area of Florida you are looking to explore, there is always going to be a Carrington office nearby here.



The city of Denver has evolved into one of the trendiest real estate markets in the country over the past few years, and that trend is just getting better in 2017. With hip communities like Colorado Springs surrounding the city, there are plenty of options for those who want to live closer to the outdoors, but still be close to those big city amenities.

The Carrington office in Denver is well versed on all of the local communities and can find you the perfect place that is close to the best skiing, but not too far from the city.


The Bay Area

From cities like San Francisco and Oakland all the way out to Sacramento and down to San Jose, the Bay Area is another thriving market that continues to grow year after year. With its reputation as a software startup mecca, there are plenty of cutting edge jobs in these communities, and the real estate is just as high tech as the companies.

There are five different Carrington offices surrounding the Bay Area communities, so our local experts there can definitely help you find the perfect home in this extremely popular market.



Out of all of the options in Texas, it looks like the Houston market is going to be the one that impresses the most in 2017. This constantly evolving city along the river has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years, and is also home to some of the best BBQ joints in the country.

Living in Houston might not sound as cool as living in the trendy city of Austin, but when it comes to real estate, Houston is the real dream destination. If you are looking for something within a short drive of the famous Houston Space Center, the Carrington office in town has got you covered.



We started out this cross-country adventure with the popular baby boomer destinations in Florida, so it is only appropriate to end it with the second most popular destination for baby boomers. Phoenix is the center of life in Arizona, and the communities that have sprouted up around this desert paradise are absolutely booming in 2017.

Whether you are interested in Phoenix specifically, or any of the surrounding communities, the three Carrington offices in Arizona can help you find the perfect desert oasis.

With offices located in each and every one of the five hottest U.S. Real estate markets of 2017, Carrington has the reach to help you find the perfect home for your family, no matter where that dream home happens to be located. The only thing you have to do is pick which one of these trendy locations you want to call home.
