10 Hottest Housing Markets in America

1. Tampa, Florida - Tampa, Florida, has been on the "hottest" housing market list for several years, but this is the first year it holds the title of being the hottest market in America, at least according to a recent report by Zillow.

2. Jacksonville, Florida - This up-and-coming port city doesn't usually make the hottest market list, with putting its hotness ranking near 167, but according to Zillow, Jacksonville is taking off.

3. Raleigh, North Carolina - Raleigh Durham, North Carolina, which encompasses the Greater Chapel Hill and the cities of Durham and Raleigh, has been a major hub for the Southeast for decades.

4. San Antonio, Texas - San Antonio, Texas, is a well-known tourist destination, thanks to its iconic River Walk, historic Alamo, and awesome food scene.

5. Charlotte, North Carolina - Charlotte, North Carolina, has been on the hottest markets list for quite some time now, so it's no surprise to see it once again in 2022.

6. Nashville, Tennessee - Nashville, Tennessee, definitely isn't an up-and-coming city. It's long been revered as one of the top metropolitan areas in the country, with deep ties in music and entertainment, giving it the nickname "Music City."

7. Atlanta, Georgia- Like Nashville, Atlanta, Georgia is a thriving city with decades of growth behind it. The city has a stable job market, an affordable entry point for housing, and has become a hub for tech start-ups and millionaires in the entertainment and media industries.

8. Phoenix, Arizona - Phoenix, Arizona, is the fifth-most-populated city in the U.S. and has been on the hottest housing markets list for several years running. This desert city -- which has ties to major medical companies, several Fortune 500 companies, tech start-ups, and retail giants -- has ample job opportunities backed by a fairly affordable cost of living.

9. Orlando, Florida - With ties to Disney and Universal Orlando Resort theme parks, Orlando, Florida, draws millions of visitors each year. But people are quickly realizing there is more to the city than its theme parks. Orlando is a great place to work and live, too.

10. Austin, Texas - Austin, Texas, has been the hottest market for the past few years. It's a rapidly growing city with a number of tech startups, Fortune 500 companies, and major corporations calling it home. And with a thriving food and culture scene and mild winters, it's understandable to see why the city is booming.

Intel’s $20 Billion Ohio Chip Hub Will Be World’s Largest

 By Ian King

(Bloomberg) -- Intel Corp. plans to spend $20 billion on a chipmaking hub on the outskirts of Columbus, Ohio, which the company expects to grow to be the world’s biggest semiconductor-manufacturing site.

The chipmaker will begin construction of two fabrication plants on a 1,000-acre site in the town of New Albany, which it expects to be operational by 2025, Intel said Friday. The plan will rely on the most advanced technologies and result in an increased American share of the global chip supply chain, the company said.

The project will be the largest single private-sector company investment ever in Ohio, according to the governor, and will generate more than 20,000 jobs in the state, including 3,000 direct Intel positions earning an average of $135,000 a year, plus benefits.

Intel is committing to building in Ohio using its own funds and hoping that the U.S. federal government will deliver on planned resources aimed at supporting an expansion of semiconductor manufacturing, Gelsinger said in an interview. Congress is currently considering funding of the CHIPs Act, a proposal to offer about $50 billion in incentives to companies willing to locate chip production in the U.S.
