The housing industry may not be in need of another top 10 list regarding markets with specific pluses and minuses, but the folks at SmartAsset believe there is room for one more. In this case: A celebration of the most stable U.S. housing markets.
For this list, the number crunching involved the home price index for single-family homes in the 358 largest urban markets, which was then boiled down to consider the overall home price growth rate since 1991 and chances that a homeowner in a particular market would see significant price declines within the decade of the property purchase.
And the most stable housing markets, according to SmartAsset’s analysis, can all be found in the Central and Mountain Time Zones: Boulder, Colo., topped the list, followed by Austin; Casper, Wyo.; Bismarck, N.D.; Midland, Texas; Fort Collins, Colo.; Billings, Mont.; Missoula, Mont.; Denver; and Grand Forks, N.D.
