Georgetown, Texas and the Austin-Round Rock market were named the top housing market for good health and building real estate wealth by RealtyTrac and Local Market Monitor. (As if we didn’t already know about the charms of Georgetown’s lifestyle and the solid housing values that make it such a desirable retirement destination.)
Highlighting important factors linked to health and wealth, the RealtyTrac report was prepared to help families before they decide to buy a home in a particular market. Health ratings were based on 10 factors from the company’s data across three major categories. Each factor was compared to an average across a large number of U.S. markets. For the top 22 picks for home price appreciation, wealth ratings were included. Combining these factors, 12 markets were selected as the best for both good health and building real estate wealth. Georgetown placed on top as part of the Austin-Round Rock market. Located just a half hour from Austin in the Texas hill country, Georgetown is a vibrant community and home to a diverse, growing population of all ages.
“While families have many good options across the country in terms of places where healthy living is evident and the prospect of appreciating home prices is solid, there are some markets that clearly stand head and shoulders above the rest,” said Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac.
