Methodology

The initial list was created by Zillow by identifying a list of more than 100 college towns in the U.S. and then selecting those towns located in the metropolitan regions expected to see the greatest expected price gains for the year ending June 30, 2013. Towns that had the greatest change in home values over the year ended August 2012 were also included, and the list was edited for space.

Monthly median rents as measured by the Zillow Rent Index provided where available; gains or declines are from August 2011. Median home values are as of the end of August.
