Realtor.com reports that May’s hot real estate markets were not the usual coastal suspects.
Rochester, NY, topped realtor.com's list of the hottest markets in America for the first time, propelled by price-conscious buyers of all generations interested in urban living. And why not? Perched on Lake Ontario, the city has its own university, good public schools, and over 12,000 acres of parkland, and it's just a stone's throw away from the wine-growing Finger Lakes region.
Two markets in Indiana, Fort Wayne and Lafayette, nabbed the second and third spots on our list, respectively. They were among seven Midwestern markets and six Northeast markets represented, the highest count for those regions since realtor.com began tracking its hottest markets in May 2013.
