This analysis looks at nearly 3,100 zones with sufficient sales data, which includes areas with at least five home sales in Q2 2019 as well as an average of at least five sales per quarter since Q3 2018.

The report revealed that about 80 percent of those zones had median home prices in Q2 2019 that were below the national figure of $266,000 and that half had median prices of less than $150,000.

Among the 3,073 Opportunity Zones with sufficient data to analyze, California has the most, with 374, followed by Florida (317), Texas (164), Pennsylvania (154), North Carolina (145) and Tennessee (138).
