Similarly, metropolitan areas in New York dominated Black Knight's list of top movers at the metro level. New York City experienced 1.1% home price appreciation, while other New York metro areas making the list included Utica, Kingston, Buffalo, Binghamton, Syracuse, Albany and Elmira.
The only two cities outside New York to make the list were Kennewick, Wash., and Gainesville, Ga.
