Homeowners often look for which properties hold the best long-term value to protect their biggest asset. SmartAsset, a personal-finance technology site, recently analyzed historical price data and ranked the top housing markets for growth and stability. Researchers considered the 358 largest urban markets and focused on homes purchased between the first quarter of 1992 and the last quarter of 2016. The 10 best housing markets for growth and stability, according to the study, are: Boulder, Colo. Austin-Round Rock, Texas Fort Collins, Colo. Bismarck, N.D. Midland, Texas Casper, Wyo.
