The company examined average daily search traffic for more than 108,000 active Zillow listings in the 100 largest U.S. metros to find not just the most popular cities, but the most in-demand neighborhoods within those cities.

The neighborhood that drew the most Zillow searches was Northeast Dallas, which attracted 36,113 average daily views, followed by the Hollywood Hills with 32,216 views per day, and Camelback East, Phoenix, with an average of 30,366, The New York Times reports.
