Opendoor Mid-Year Hottest Zips

Michael S. knows firsthand what draws people to Clarksville, TN. An Army veteran and retired social worker, Michael and his wife have lived in Clarksville for 30 years. “After retiring, my wife and I decided to sell our home of 17 years to give us more flexibility to travel the road in my travel trailer,” shares Michael. “But I dreaded selling my home, since the process took a year and a half last time.” 

Michael’s son recommended that he try Opendoor to streamline the experience. He was thrilled not only with the offer he received, but also with the opportunity to maintain his home base in such a desirable city. “We love the community and outdoorsy feel in Clarksville. The central location allows us to travel north or south with ease, and the cost of living is ideal for retirees.”

As we head into the summer, Opendoor is looking back on the first 6 months of the year to see the top 20 hottest Opendoor neighborhoods, like Clarksville, that attracted homebuyers across the country. 

A top feature drawing buyers this year is the weather. From Winter Garden, FL to San Diego, CA, the vast majority are located in cities that boast warm weather year-round. 

While Clarksville, TN has been a consistent top destination for homebuyers, Cypress, TX made it onto the top 10 list for the first time. Other locations like Celebration, FL and Yukon, OK saw their standing increase on the list over the past few months.

A Closer Look at Clarksville, TN

A Look At Other Trending Neighborhoods for 2022

San Antonio, TX
While no longer flying under the radar, San Antonio still offers that “hidden gem” appeal when it comes to price point. With a cost of living 8% lower than the national average, San Antonio is more affordable than its neighbors, Austin and Dallas. Better yet, the job industry has been booming there for several years, with several corporate headquarters and military bases bringing opportunity. 

Lehi, UT
One of the fastest growing cities in America, Lehi is a bonafide hub for the tech industry. One of the oldest settled communities in Utah, it is now nicknamed Silicon Slope due to the area surrounding Lehi hosting offices for tech giants such as Microsoft, Adobe, Micron, and Ancestry.com. This rapid expansion has not detracted from the sparse suburban feel, myriad parks, and beautiful mountainous backdrop that residents love. Thirty minutes from the Salt Lake International Airport, Lehi is an ideal balance between a bustling city and the outdoors – a combination coveted by many remote workers and Millennials. 

Maricopa, AZ
As the Phoenix Metro remains a Southwestern hotspot, Maricopa has been growing in popularity for homebuyers looking to live just outside the city in a newer built home. Maricopa is a great option for homeowners who want a small-town feel with big-city amenities and close approximation to job opportunities in sectors from IT to healthcare.

Winter Garden, FL
Contrary to its name, Winter Garden offers an average of 236 sunny days each year. That said, the appealing weather doesn’t even top the list of why so many homeowners are moving here. Boasting a thriving business community and above average school system, Winter Garden is a near-utopia for young families. This suburb of Orlando is near Disney World, offers biking and walking trails, and has an active downtown with local eateries and farmers markets.
