Lists of the fastest growing ZIP Codes are usually compiled using population data. But accurate population data is only available from the US Census, and the most recent measured results are from 2010. For a more current understanding of which ZIP Codes are growing, Maponics used quarterly residential delivery counts from 2013, which are part of our ZIP Code Boundaries product. By analyzing residential delivery count information, we were able to see which ZIP Codes had the highest increase in residential addresses in 2013 - a reliable indicator of increased real estate growth. It's interesting to note that the fast growing ZIPs for residential properties appear in only two states: Texas and California. For further illumination, we appended Context™ Real Estate Sales and Context™ Real Estate Inventory data, which provided a snapshot of real estate activity in those ZIPs. Note: Delivery addresses, sales prices and loan-to-value ratios are based on the quarterly median.
