The site released some additional data on Mira Mesa (and the other housing markets that made the top ten) as well. Mira Mesa’s median price is listed at $536,000, with an average of 22 days on the market.
The zip codes that made the list have a strong pull on the Millennial generation of buyers. Danielle Hale, Realtor.com’s chief economist, explains, “Increasingly, the hottest housing markets are the ones that appeal to Millennial preferences, and right now the standouts are relatively affordable suburbs with local ‘it’ factors.”
What kinds of “it” factors? Hale cited “hiking trails, great restaurants, and nightlife.” Mira Mesa certainly boasts some great restaurants. With a melting pot of ethnicities, there is no end to the variety of cuisine available in the neighborhood. There are also some microbreweries in Mira Mesa, which are very popular with the Millennial generation.
In terms of hiking trails, the beach is only 15 minutes away. Those wanting some fresh air can also trek through Mission Trails, a nature preserve spanning 5,800 acres. The community is close to both Mesa College and Miramar College, which may also be contributing factors to its popularity.
