I think NYC and Boston are past gentrification. There are pockets here and there, but they are more products of post gentrification.

DC is certainly a major suspect. Every major cities is experiencing it in one form or another.

Just to start, I will say (perhaps too obviously) that basically every city I know of in the south has many areas that are gentrifying. Some of the responses in this thread make it seem like this might not be a given or understood.

Ok, the ones that could be in discussion for fastest? Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, Charleston (which could actually be the leader percentage-wise). Imo Nashville, Austin, New Orleans and Charlotte have had that flag at different points in the past decade but no longer. Houston I am not sure about.

Austin and Atlanta immediately come to mind.

I live in Raleigh and it seems like they're building $400K+ brand new homes over in the east side close to downtown. That whole area is pretty depressed but looks like it's gentrifying slowly. Not nearly at the rate that neighborhoods in Atlanta are turning around. I think if I were to buy something here, I'd buy over that way.

We have had several people move into our area from Asheville because they say it is no longer a good place to raise children. It has too many strange people and panhandlers. But if that is your cup of tea? Go for it!
