Here’s a great article outlining why this will probably be the last year to get the best deals in real estate.

In an article from Inman News that identifies the hottest markets for out-of-area house hunters, Virginia-Highland has been named of one of the “best kept secret” neighborhoods in the country, according to Trulia. Trulia identified the zip codes in different cities that were searched the most by locals over non-locals. In Atlanta, that would be 30306! Other notable neighborhoods around the country include Key Biscayne in Miami, Logan Circle in Washington DC and West Town/Wicker Park in Chicago. Not bad Va-Hi, not bad!
