Where are America’s fastest growing suburbs?  That’s the question Realtor.com recently put pen to paper to in order to determine the hottest bedroom communities all across the country.  To get their list, they analyzed over 7k zip codes, focusing on the ones outside a city’s limits and within an hour’s commute in rush hour to the center of the nearest urban area. They calculated home appreciation over the last three years, the increase in the number of home listings, population growth and factored in the share of new construction at the county level.

“These  [are places that]  have what people want. They aren’t right in the city, and they aren’t too far out, where commute times are long.”

The top 10 fastest growing suburbs are:

  1. Apex, NC
  2. Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
  3. Frisco, TX
  4. Scottdale, GA
  5. Lakewood Ranch, FL
  6. Arabi, LA
  7. Manor, TX
  8. Aurora, CO
  9. Waukee, IA
  10. Nolensville, TN
