Sacramento’s Curtis Park is projected to be the nation’s sixth “Hottest Neighborhood” in 2015, according to Redfin, the Seattle-based online real estate brokerage.

Redfin based its rankings on various factors, including online home listings, consumer reviews and speed of home sales. Input from Redfin agents and home affordability also were considered.

Redfin put the median sales price for homes in Curtis Park at $381,000, with homes on the market for a median of 26 days.

Redfin agent Jed Setzer also noted that Curtis Park “is centrally located, close to downtown and right next to Land Park, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Sacramento (and)...it’s not uncommon for people who grew up there to return to raise their families. Historically, it’s been a very a stable market so it could be primed for a groundswell of interest.”

El Cerrito in San Diego topped Redfin’s list, with a median home sale price of $320,000 and a median of 26 days on the market.
