Realtor.com released its list of the 10 fastest gentrifying neighborhoods in America, and Rivertown in Detroit tops the list.
The website determined their findings by first looking at lower-income ZIP codes, and excluding ZIP codes that were more expensive than the city’s median sale price in 2012. It ranked neighborhoods based on change in median household income, change in median home sale price, change in median home listing price, and change in resident education level.
