Which markets are still generating real estate investment in the U.S.?

According to recent analysis from online marketplace NewHomesMate there are 17 metro areas in the U.S. that should continue to see real-estate investors and development.

NewHomesMate measured multiple factors to determine the hottest and coldest markets for real estate. Cities that have available job opportunities, lower than average home prices, increasing income growth, and increasing rents were seen as potential areas for continued investment.

In the report from NewHomesMate, the Sun Belt was well represented. Florida metro areas Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, and Lakeland are all expected to generate real estate investment. Tennessee was well represented on the list with Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga making the list. Atlanta, Charlotte, and Houston were among the bigger markets that should continue to see investment in the real estate sector.

NewHomesMate highlighted the western part of the U.S. as the area that should see a decline in real estate investment. The Phoenix, Boise, Denver, Las Vegas, Reno, Seattle, and Spokane metro areas are predicted to see a decline in real estate investment.
