Cities hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis are among some of the cities leading a housing recovery, Move Inc. reports in its Top Turnaround Town Report for May.

Move Inc. compiled a list of Top Turnaround Towns for this month, using year-over-year housing data from the first quarters of 2012 and 2011. Many of the cities in the top 25 that have seen the biggest boosts in price appreciation are also seeing a big drop to inventories of homes for-sale. Some of the states that suffered the worst of the foreclosure crisis — such as Florida, Arizona, and California — have cities represented on the list, and are showing some of the biggest signs of recovery.

The following are the top 10 turnaround markets, according to Move Inc.’s report from May (including the year-over-year median list price increases).

1. Phoenix-Mesa, Ariz.
Median list price increase from Q1 2011 to Q1 2012: +26.94%

2. Miami
Median list price increase from Q1 2011 to Q1 2012: +24.32%

3. Orlando

“We continue to see signs of stabilization and recovery on the local level throughout the country,” says Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Realtor.com operator, Move Inc.  “By all indications, the 2012 housing market is unfolding as we expected, and we’re encouraged with the progress local markets are making. However, much will depend on the continued health of our economy, specifically job rates, and how lenders will release their foreclosure inventories.”
