They say a good place is hard to find, but if you’re looking to live in one of these 25 metropolitan areas, that may feel like an understatement.
Using data from ATTOM Solutions, we checked which metro areas have the lowest vacancy rates — that is to say, the fewest available residential properties — and ranked them. To make the list more relevant, we didn’t include areas with a population less than 100,000.
Believe it or not, every metro area on this list has a less than 1% vacancy rate. So if you’re a house hunter in one of the following 25 metro areas, we wish you good luck (you’ll need it).
25. Portland-South Portland, Maine (0.69% vacancy for residential properties)
24. El Paso, Texas (0.65% vacancy for residential properties)
23. San Diego-Carlsbad, Calif. (0.65% vacancy for residential properties)
