Top 10 Hottest Suburbs in US
CBS MoneyWatch recently conducted an extensive study of more than 1,500 suburbs and have identified the top suburbs that are exploding in terms of economic and population growth. The rankings are based on a number of factors, but focused on employment rates, both year-over-year increases and overall unemployment that fall well below the national norm. They also factored in access to suburban staples such as grocery stores, shopping, banks and entertainment; proximity to good schools; light commute times and low crime. These suburbs are recovering quickly from the national recession, and emerging as the best places to live. For homeowners in these suburbs, their home values are set to rise.
St. Johns County’s Fruit Cove ranked in at #3!! Located along the St. John’s River south of Jacksonville, is home to unique small companies, corporations and specialty shops. It has been named by Business Week as the most affordable suburb in Florida. It retains a small town feel, despite its rapid growth: Fruit Cove’s population has grown by more than 82 percent in the past decade.
