California homes remained hot among homebuyers in 2010’s second quarter, according to a report by online brokerage ZipRealty.
ZipRealty’s quarterly "Home Hunter Report" is based on multiple listing service data from 5,400 cities in 33 of the 35 major metropolitan areas where ZipRealty operates. The data covers the period between April 1 and June 30.
Of the report’s 100 "hottest" ZIP codes nationwide, 91 were in California. This means that, on average, homes in these ZIP codes sold for the most above listing price, while homes in the "coldest" ZIP codes sold for the most under listing price.
