Who came up with the list? Ask and you shall receive.

The hidden gems list was put together by The National Association of Realtors. By giving their expert opinions, they were able to come up with the full list of 10 hidden gems in the U.S.

All 10 of the housing markets were described as undervalued, are located in the South or Sunbelt and their price appreciation is expected to outpace the national average.
