CoreLogic sorted the markets with the highest share of new-home sales. The analysis was performed on 2010 annual data for the top 100 markets with the most sales.

It’s very well-known that there are a lot of distressed markets and which markets they are. There is much less information on which markets are doing well. But instead of choosing performance, CoreLogic chose new-home sales, because if a market is near the top for new sales share then it’s most likely doing relatively well.

10 Best Markets for Investors

As you can see from the list, it’s middle-tier or large cities in the South that missed the boom and bust and are doing fine. The only exception is Jacksonville, Fla. — CoreLogic found some articles showing the new sales market there doing well. It might reflect a large influx of people coming into the city, which definitely had been the case prior to 2008.
