All Real Estate Is Local: Best and Worst Zip Codes

by Alex Stenback on August 4, 2008

Felix Salmon has up a great little graphic (via Jake at Econompic Data) based on a Businessweek comparison of the best and worst performing zip codes in major metropolitan areas.

A very simple way of pressing home the point that despite the general negativity in the real estate market, some areas continue to appreciate, (and these areas tend to be of the long established and higher-priced ilk.)

In the Twin Cities, North Oaks nabbed the top spot, marking 15% appreciation.  South Minneapolis’s 55409 (basically the Kingield neighborhood and other areas east of Uptown near 35W) zip code saw a 24% drop.
