This price increase is driving people away from buying, says Forbes. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, mortgage applications are at a 22-year low.

However, regardless of home price figures and sales trends — and despite high inflation — consumers are spending. And according to’s eighth annual Hottest Zip Codes report, there are some areas in the U.S. that are more attractive than others, in “pricey metro areas.”

For its rankings, took into account high-demand zip codes (based on individual viewers on the site) and housing market velocity (based on the number of days a listing remains active on the site).

Here’s a list of the top 10 ZIPs by area and median home prices (as of June 2022).

Apparently, it’s all about the Northeast as well. Eight of the top 10 most popular zip codes are in the Northeast region of the US, with the Midwest and South represented by one zip code each (Worthington, OH [43085] and Johnson City, TN [37604]).

Nearby cities and suburbs outside of Boston are especially attractive to those looking for affordable housing away from the metro area. The Manchester-Nashua and Concord, New Hampshire zips are also hot this year.

“With inflation and mortgage costs squeezing monthly home budgets, determined buyers are breathing new life into historic areas like New England this year,” chief economist Danielle Hale said in a statement.
