Mortgage and real estate pros are in the midst of a sizzling hot housing market this summer. Consumer demand continues to increase, especially in the South and Southeast where there is strong population and job growth.

From Indianapolis to Nashville, here's a look at the 15 hottest residential real estate markets of summer 2017. The rankings, by online real estate marketplace vendor Ten-X, take into account pricing, sales, affordability, permit activity, economic and demographic growth, as well as forward-looking data like economic forecasts and population trends.
