Stockton made it into the Top 5 hottest housing markets in November.
That’s a big improvement for Stockton from the past years when The Port City was in bankruptcy. As a result, the town had a bad reputation compared to the rest of Central California.
In fact, the improved ranking puts the Central Valley mecca on the list based upon its strong & attractive change in asking price, according to the first-ever RealtyHop Market Health Index Report.
The report says… “We found that Stockton only experienced a small median price drop, which is third-best in the nation, and that is excellent. That’s indicative of a strong real estate market and an economy that’s growing. So, many times the Real Estate Market is a symptom of a good economy. The economy itself may be driving a better housing market for Stockton. Plus, the regions of Sacramento Market & the Bay Area are red hot. Therefore, Stockton becomes an affordable option.“
In the list of top 5, Stockton was ranked third for its steady home listing prices before a house is sold or delisted.
