Top Real Estate Markets of 2023


As interest rates have risen, an increasing number of homebuyers have shied away from buying a home. In some real estate markets, however, sales and prices are expected to continue going up through 2023. What they all have in common is the affordability factor. According to Realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale, “These places did not overheat during the [COVID-19] pandemic housing frenzy over the last two years. That puts them on more solid footing. Prices and sales still have more room to grow.”
