The Southern California housing recovery has been robust in 2013, with heavy demand from investors and families driving large price gains. Many ZIP codes that have seen the sharpest rebound were the ones hit hardest after the crash. Investors — including Wall Street firms — have bought up perceived bargains in those neighborhoods to flip or rent out. Use this interactive map to look up the difference in your neighborhood between the bottom and the median sales price for previously owned houses in the third quarter of 2013.
Note: In this analysis, The Times excluded ZIP Codes that averaged fewer than 20 sales per quarter over multiple years. Data also exclude Imperial County.>
