Seattle and Tacoma Make Smart Money’s List

Smart Money recently published a list of the five cities they predict will be the top performers in the 2010 housing market. And it’s good news for the Puget Sound region because Seattle and Tacoma both made the cut. Several factors went into determining the cities, including the labor market, foreclosure rates, home prices, and the number of adjustable loans that are due to reset in the coming year. They make a good point that the bar is not set incredibly high given the market of late, but it’s certainly encouraging none-the-less to see two Puget Sound cities on the list (Tacoma actually ranks #1).

PS: I recently read another article on CNN Money that has a similar list made up of mid and smaller sized cities; both WA and OR are well represented. Here is a link to the complete story and list:  http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/moneymag_realestate/2010/biggest_gains.html
