The nation’s hottest ZIP code isn’t one of the 33 in San Francisco.
Based on how long it takes properties to sell and how frequently homes are viewed on its site, Realtor.com found the nation’s 10 hottest ZIP codes. The names are new — Watauga, Texas, is the hottest — but the locations are what could be expected. The list contains a few Bay Area outposts, and suburbs of Denver, San Diego, and Portland, Ore.
One surprise is Crestwood, Mo., a suburb of St. Louis.
Part of greater St. Louis, Crestwood is a bargain hunter’s dream, with prices that are about half of those of the surrounding area of historic Kirkwood and Webster Groves. It’s the least expensive community that feeds into Lindbergh Schools, a district that has received national honors and several state awards. Crestwood also boasts 120 acres of parks.
