A new neighborhood ranking finds where U.S homebuyers "shared the love," so to speak. Real estate platform Zillow tracks the markets with the most "saves," indicated by a clickable heart, by household.
Zillow's overall findings reveal that the nation's most-loved neighborhoods are generally on the luxury end of the market. Similarly, U.S. home shoppers are targeting locations of leisure, vacation hubs like Ellisville, Mass., south of Boston near Cape Cod. Ellisville got more "love" per home in 2018 than any other neighborhood in Boston's metropolitan area, and ranked 10th overall in the study.
The list of most-loved neighborhoods ranges from upscale enclaves, to popular vacation/retirement communities and previously tired neighborhoods undergoing revitalization. No neighborhood in the country received more love per home in 2018 than The Oaks, a luxury gated community in Calabasas, a city in the Los Angeles metro area. The affluent community – where many celebrities including Britney Spears, Ozzy Osbourne, and Jennifer Lopez have lived over the years – features a median home value of $3 million.
