LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — Las Vegas resident Norman Rosensteel recently bought a three-bedroom home in Henderson. It's in the 89014 zip code and that's one of the top five hot zip codes in the valley, according to a real estate company.

A recent report released by Opendoor says buyers are flocking to areas north of the Las Vegas Strip and in west Las Vegas.

"I'm not too surprised about the findings," said Rosensteel. "When we sold our condo, it sold in two days with multiple offers over the asking price."

Opendoor tracks buyer interest through its app, which keeps tabs on when buyers unlock a front door and look at homes in the Las Vegas area.

"The houses in certain locations don't come on the market often," Rosensteel said. "So, we called right away, and made an offer in one day."

Opendoors' most popular zip code is in the Summerlin area - 89129.

According to the latest market research, from the Las Vegas Global economic perspective, taken from web-based surveys between March 7-12, 128 homes were sold in that zip code with the average home going for more than $583,000.

Also, according to the recent numbers, here are the other zip codes making the list:

89081 - North Las Vegas
89149 - Las Vegas

As far as the fastest selling homes, two zip codes were in North Las Vegas with one in Summerlin:

89030 - North Las Vegas
89115 - North Las Vegas
89128 - Las Vegas.
