Here is January's 2016 Hot List:


The hot list

  1. San Francisco, CA

  2. San Jose, CA

  3. Dallas, TX

  4. Vallejo, CA

  5. San Diego, CA

  6. Sacramento, CA

  7. Nashville, TN

  8. Stockton, CA

  9. Denver, CO

  10. Los Angeles, CA

  11. Santa Rosa, CA

  12. Oxnard, CA

  13. Palm Bay, FL

  14. Yuba City, CA

  15. Modesto, CA

  16. Detroit, MI

  17. Midland, TX

  18. Santa Cruz, CA

  19. Tampa, FL

  20. Fort Wayne, IN


San Francisco retains the first spot this month—again—as California maintains its dominance with seven of the top 10 markets. One surprise: Nashville is the biggest gainer, moving up six spots to end at No. 7. Also, Texas and Florida now feature multiple markets on the list. Overall, Florida real estate markets just keep getting hotter, and the state will give California a run for its money in 2016 as the warm-weather housing market to beat. Maybe.

Jonathan Smoke, Chief economist of Realtor.com affirms their initial readings on January for positive growth.   Traffic, searches and listing views exhibit the January "pop" we saw last year.     A large number of prospective buyers have been telling us they plan to purchase in the spring and summer of 2016.
