Redfin, a popular real estate website, just released a report of the hottest neighborhoods in the country.
As we usher in the new real estate season at Redfin, a big question on our minds is: Which neighborhoods will be the darlings of 2014? In search of answers, we went to our website users, tallying hundreds of millions of pages they visited and homes they added as Favorites to monitor for price changes or sales. At the same time we asked hundreds of Redfin real estate agents across the country to share their insights on which neighborhoods are buzzing and why.
Whipping up this special cocktail of big data analysis and real-life human experience, we assembled our list of neighborhoods with the greatest growth in popularity over the last four months.
We are proud to share that East Passyunk Crossing was named third hottest neighborhood in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area!
Homes in our little corner of South Philadelphia have seen an increase in pageviews of over 500% compared to this time last year on the Redfin site. That is pretty impressive.
