YONKERS, NY – May 7, 2018 – Crestwood, one of Yonkers’ 38 neighborhoods, has been recognized by popular real estate research website Zillow.com as one of the nation’s most popular and sought-after neighborhoods for house shopping. Crestwood ranks as the 17th most popular, the only one in New York State and one of only three neighborhoods on the east coast.
According to Zillow.com, homes in Crestwood experience 5,822 page views per house listing, compared to 365 page views for the typical U.S. home, and has a median listing price of $559,735. Crestwood/Yonkers, NY and Paradise Park/Oakland, CA are the only neighborhoods in the top 20 with homes listed under $1 million.
“Yonkers is filled with an array of wonderful and unique neighborhoods like Crestwood,” said Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano. “Crestwood is one of our city’s hidden gems, so we are not at all surprised by its ranking as one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in which to live. House shoppers are quickly realizing Yonkers is a great city to live, work and play.”
Located in northeast Yonkers, Crestwood borders the Bronx River Parkway and the Villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville. Crestwood is home to Metro North’s Crestwood Train Station on the Harlem Line and is located 30 minutes from midtown Manhattan.
The New York Times once described Crestwood as an ‘old world in a big city’ when featured in October 2011. The complete study of Zillow.com’s Most Popular Neighborhoods can be found here.
At the end of each day, Zillow takes a snapshot of all the active home listings on the site and records how many times each home was viewed. A database is mined to yield the neighborhoods with the highest number of page views per listing from January 1 to March 31, 2018. Only neighborhoods with at least 10 for-sale homes during that time were counted. Because listings often go through price changes, and to avoid counting the same property twice, the median of listings’ most recent list price within individual neighborhoods were taken.
