Using data gathered from Fiserv Lending Solutions-a home price research company,five cities made the list. But Washington DC Real Estate was considered a average real estate market. I am sure you are curious to find out how did the cities they chose made the list? Well these cities local economies kept unemployment and foreclosure rates below average. Also their afforability is low.

Gita- You are very welcome. Have a great and safe thanksgiving.

Betina- I am shocked too. Matter of fact Barbara Corcocan was on the Today show on NBC about three weeks ago and two cities in Texas made the list of top five real estate market- Austin and Corpi Christi. Have a great and safe thanksgiving.

I think Denver is an average market, in comparison to the rest of the country, housing prices seem to have stabilized some, even though they are down from 3 to 4 years ago.  There is definitely less surplus and about 30 percent less homes on the market in the Denver area than last year at this time.  Colorado unemployment rate is 1 percent less than the national average which is 6.5%.

Tatyana-Denver is definitely an average market. Average house sold in Washington DC in November was $549,000 and average days on the market was 80 days. Houses are very expensive and they are taking longer to sell. 568,000 jobs lost last month is not good news either. God willing things will get better VERY VERY SOON.
