Sure, we’ve all heard that the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward metropolitan area is one the hottest real estate markets in the country (actually, number 2) and it’s no great surprise that the San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara area is number 9. Even Sacramento-Roseville-Arden-Arcade metro checks in at number 4.
But how many could have predicted that the hottest real estate market in the country, as reported by Realtor.com is the Vallejo-Fairfield area?
With a hot job market and continued low inventory other hot areas in California include Stockton-Lodi (No. 14), Santa Rosa (No. 17), Yuba City (19!) Modesto at No. 20.
