The latest predictions by Veros Real Estate Solutions dovetail other recent forecasts of home price appreciation being heavily led by the West, along with smaller markets away from the coasts. Seattle seems to consistently appear near or at the top of everyone’s list as the hottest market for the year ahead as the city swells in size, driven by solid employment opportunities and wage growth, which is squeezing supplies and forcing prices upwards.

The city was also second to Nashville, TN, in a recent Zillow forecast of the top property markets.
