This Arizona city topped the nation’s ‘boom town’ ZIP code list
The Power Ranch in Gilbert puts the town on top of the U.S. in another data compilation ranking, this one from Realtor.com.
The 85297 ZIP code ranked No. 1 in “ The Boom Towns: America’s fastest growing neighborhoods” ranking from the real estate website run by Fox Media for the National Association of Realtors.
Every ZIP code on the list, according to the study, had five times the job growth of the top 100 counties in the U.S. Household growth was seven times the rate of other counties and new home starts are at least six times the growth rate.
Although city leaders will be tickled with the top-of-the-chart rating, they may cringe at Realtor.com’s calling Gilbert a “suburban dream come true.”
The 85297 ZIP code houses Power Ranch, Trilogy and Seville subdivisions and is home to GreatSchools.org Arizona top-rated Centennial Elementary School.
Los Angeles’ historic cultural center (90012) ranked No. 2 and downtown Dallas (75201) was third on the list.
