Cd'A called nation's 'hottest housing market'

The lead sentence in an article of the Wall Street Journal says "The picturesque lakeside city of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, tops the list of the country's hottest emerging housing markets."

The website identifies the top metro areas for home buyers seeking an appreciating housing market and appealing lifestyle amenities.

"Buyers from other western states are moving to northern Idaho in droves seeking a more rural and less expensive place to live," the article says. "Coeur d'Alene is also a popular second-home and luxury market owing to the area's natural beauty and access to outdoor activities such as skiing and water sports."

The Wall Street Journal/ Emerging Housing Market Index ranks the 300 biggest metro areas in the nation. Following Coeur d'Alene are Austin, Texas., Springfield, Ohio, Billings, Mont., and Spokane, Wash., "just across the border from Coeur d'Alene."
