​​​​​​​WACO, WOODWAY – Data for the most-searched ZIP codes on realtor.com® in 2016 was not the wide array of interesting, seductive locales across the country. 

Realtor.com results show a lone state accounting for almost all of their most popular ZIPs. 

​That lone state? It’s none other than the Lone Star State itself—Texas.​​

The top four ZIP codes are in Waco and Woodway.​

While realtors say this demonstrates an interest in the area it doesn't necessarily translate to a top housing market. 

There’s still a tempting tale to tell.

First off, don’t get these cities confused with realtor.com's look at the nation’s hottest markets—they simply based this data on what people searched on in the realtor.com search box in 2016.​​​

Waco ​​Realtor Roman Novian said he's seen the area top a similar list two years ago. The most obvious reason is from the popularity of the HGTV show Fixer Upper. ​

Another big selling point, it doesn't cost much to live here compared to other cities.

"The low cost of living is always a good selling point for the Waco area you've got good schools low cost of living is definitely the number one," Novian said.​
