9 of 12

3. Lawton Park

City: Seattle, Wash.
Median price per foot, 2012: $276
Percent change since 2011: 14%

Lovely Lawton Park is a high income, low density gathering of 30-somethings who seem eager to live in this charming area where many of the homes were built before their parents were born. There were fewer homes for sale in this neighborhood in 2012 than there were in 2011, according to real estate listing aggregator Redfin, and the inventory constraint helped buoy prices. The average home in this neighborhood sold for $480,000 in November, according to Redfin.
