The Akron metro area — Summit and Portage counties — is the 20th “hottest” real estate market in the nation, a new report shows. The Columbus and Springfield regions also made the top 20 listing.
The report looks at market demand based on unique viewers per property on realtor.com, and the number of days a listing remains active on realtor.com. Realtor.com is the official web site of the National Association of Realtors and is operated by News Corp.
The Akron metro area in March was the nation’s 20th hottest market in part because listed homes were on the market for a median of 31 days, down 41.9% from a year ago. The number of online viewers for listed properties also was above the national average. The median listing price was $180,000.
The Akron metro area ranked as the 25th hottest market in March 2020, according to the Realtor.com report released this week.
