Rankings determined by how long it takes properties to sell, how often listings are viewed

Most of the “hottest” ZIP codes for housing encompass submarkets or suburbs of larger metros. According to a recent hotness ranking compiled by Move Inc., a subsidiary of realtor.com, 02176 in Melrose, Massachusetts — a submarket of Boston — is the hottest ZIP for housing in the nation, followed by 43085 (Worthington, Ohio) and 80122 (Centennial, Colorado). The latter ZIP codes are submarkets of Columbus and Denver, respectively.
