Many of the nation’s large cities suffered real estate market setbacks as a result of multiple, mainly pandemic-inspired factors. Companies moved out of cities, taking jobs with them and house-hunting new employees and investors created massive supply and demand issues in areas that were previously buyers’ real estate markets.

Real estate fintech company, Fund That Flip, analyzed data from September 2021 and identified 10 metro areas with healthy moderate- to high-income real estate markets. The factors they used to determine market growth included: growing home values, final sale price compared to price listed (sale-to-list ratio), home sale turnaround time and an area’s business growth and unemployment rates.
