According to U.S. News, Denver has once again been named as the hottest housing market in the United States. The city boasts of several strong points, including low unemployment, few mortgage delinquencies, low rental vacancy rates for investors, and a positive ratio of building permits to job growth. However, the low housing supply and a low ratio of building permits to new household growth will continue to support home prices, while maintaining a floor on rents until more housing inventory becomes available.

The housing market analysis of the hottest housing markets is based on the U.S. News Housing Market Index, which uses a broad range of data points to rank the covered metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) from freezing to blazing on a scale of 1-100. Denver scored 74.8 on the index, up by 7.4 points year-over-year through December. The ranking is based on data from December 2023.

The other metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) that made it to the top five list are Raleigh, North Carolina (73.7), Virginia Beach, Virginia (73.2), Durham, North Carolina (72.8), and Charlotte, North Carolina (72.0).

During the pandemic, these markets benefited from unusually low mortgage rates and the need for more living space. Even as more workers returned to offices and higher mortgage rates made buying less affordable, these MSAs have remained popular. Additionally, these MSAs offer the amenities found in larger cities without the downsides of a huge metro area like New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago. Read the complete article here.
