San Francisco and San Jose were at the top of the list, coming in at numbers two, and three, respectively – the same slots they occupied in April. Sacramento, meanwhile, leaped from No. 21 in April to No. 12 last month.

“Sacramento typically follows strong growth in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area, as it is a relatively more affordable alternative,” Smoke said. “But this market has strong employment growth above the national average and is seeing strong household growth as a result.”
