With the U.S. housing market booming in the spring, major markets in states like Arizona, Texas and Georgia are noticing a growth in certain neighborhoods.

A recent study by realtor.com identified the top fastest-growing neighborhoods in America that are slated to grow even faster due to job opportunities, new households forming and new homes being built to meet growing demand.

The analysis also states that new home starts are up to six times the growth seen in the top 100 counties. And most important, each individual ZIP code is projected to see a growth in households of 9% to 19% over the next five years.

So if you want to be where the growth is, here are the top 10 booming neighborhoods in America.
