Could there be a correlation between hot housing markets and avocado toast? According to some super-cool hipster research, homes in upcoming hipster ‘hoods are a great indicator of rising housing prices.
Yelp and realtor.com teamed up to check out hot hipster housing markets where prices are rising in neighborhoods where you’ll find pour-over coffee, indie bike shops, vinyl records, craft beers and craftier cocktails along with the most beautiful beards imaginable. Oh, and Avocado Toast. Tons of avocado toast. I’m sure they are made from organic, gluten-free, free-range avocados that are to DIE for.
Apparently, the hottest hipster housing market in the country is located in the way cool Columbus, Ohio zip code of 43202. I don’t think I’ve ever been to this zip code, but I’m sure it’s lovely.
While the downtown Phoenix real estate market was mostly snubbed, we did see the 85234 zip code in Gilbert break the top 50 hottest hipster home market list. They came in at a respectable #39.
Personally, I would think that places like downtown Phoenix, downtown Tempe and downtown Chandler have a LOT more hipsters than places like Fort Wayne, Indiana, Boise, Idaho or Fargo, North Dakota which came in at numbers 4, 26, and 29.
If you’re wondering where the scrumptious avocado toast from the photo above can be found, it would be in the hipster ‘hood of the famous 85281 zip code in Tempe, AZ. Check it out at the AMAZING Sweetest Season Bakery Boutique. – If you are cool enough, you MUST give them a try.
