New England zip codes hold over half of 2022’s top 10 list in the eighth annual Realtor.com® Hottest ZIP Codes Report. Homes in these zip codes sold in an average of eight days and received nearly four times (3.7%) more buyer views than a typical U.S. listing, according to the report. 

The top 10 zip codes are:

  1. 14618 Brighton, N.Y.
  2. 03062 Nashua, N.H.
  3. 43085 Worthington, Ohio
  4. 03038 Derry, N.H.
  5. 04062 Windham, Maine
  6. 18017 Bethlehem, Penn.
  7. 37604 Johnson City, Tenn.
  8. 03106 Hooksett, N.H.
  9. 02760 North Attleboro, Mass.
  10. 04210 Auburn, Maine

Many of the top 10’s newest contenders are attracting buyers looking to move from high-priced East Coast cities, an analysis of Realtor.com listings showed.

In the first half of the year, at least one big East Coast city – Boston, New York and Washington, D.C. – was among the top five sources of buyers viewing listings in all 10 of the hottest ZIPs, the report said. 

“With rising inflation and mortgage rates squeezing monthly housing budgets, this year’s determined buyers are breathing new life into competition for homes in historic areas like New England,” said Danielle Hale, Realtor.com chief economist. “Our 2022 Hottest ZIPs ranking illustrates how many Americans are redefining their priorities to achieve homeownership while building their careers, by trading downtown life for relatively affordable areas with reasonable part-time commutes to big cities.”
