Analysis and forecasts by zip-code
A large portion of household wealth is tied up in the place where people live: their homes. According to many real estate agents, location is the single most important factor in determining real estate prices. But the quality of a location may vary from one block to the other. We map housing prices on the zip code level and by square mile for Southern Californian counties. Where do we see the largest increase in housing prices? What factors determine how vulnerable housing prices are in downturns? Our maps and animations provide insights both for businesses who rely on the health of local real estate and for home-seekers looking for the right neighborhood to locate to.
