Suburban communities within 30 minutes of a city center continue to be the most popular housing markets in the U.S., writes Nicole Bachaud for Zillow.

In the Northeast United States, Havertown turned out to be the most popular market, edging out four communities in the Boston suburbs.

Because of the popularity of these communities, home values are growing faster there than in the cities that make up their metro areas. 

Eight of the top 10 markets on Zillow’s list have home values higher than their nearest principal city. Seven of those markets have a typical home value of more than $150,000.

The most popular housing markets in the US are Woodinville, Washington; Burke, Virginia; and Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

The acceleration of remote work has led to the rise of home values in suburban communities, with home buyers preferring space and affordability over a short commute.

To determine the most popular U.S. housing markets, Zillow looked at more than 1,000 cities, analyzing page-view traffic, home value growth and for-sale inventory. Consideration was given to home buyer demand and general housing market activity.

Cities with fewer than 100 for-sale listings from January to March 2022 were excluded.
