U.S. Real Estate Heat Maps from Zillow, HotPads, and Trulia; Stock Market Heat Maps Too!

Real estate dbases, Zillow.com, Trulia, and HotPads, now all offer heat maps to illustrate "hot" (or cold) neighborhoods for real estate in various cities.

The HotPads Heat Maps are available for the United States. Interactive versions are also available. You'll find neighborhood listings along with the following Census data:
+ Population Density
+ Per Capita Income
+ Median Household Income
+ Median Age
+ Percent Renters
+ Median Rent

Look for the "heat map tab" at the top of the search box. Search by city name or zip code to determine if a "heat map" is available. Here's an example of a Trulia "heat map" for the Chicago metropolitan area. From the page:

See home prices and popularity trends in Chicago, IL, by neighborhood or ZIP—sort by avg. listing price, avg. sales price, median sales price, avg. price/sqft and search popularity. Choose between seeing the actual prices or year-over-year (y-o-y) percentage changes on the map.

Also note the advanced search page and its many options.

Look for the "heat map" option when you search by address or zip code. It's located next to the hybrid map view. "Heat Maps" are available at the city view level. Btw, Zillow includes "recently sold" home data and each home for sale offers a "comparables" link to see prices that similar homes in the area have sold for.
