Bet you wish you were in on the pre-recession Flip This House phenomenon now.

That's because it turns out that Highland Park, a star of the show, is getting its post-recession due. No, it's not the hippest neighborhood in Los Angeles.

But it does top Redfin's list of American "Real Estate Neighborhoods To Watch In 2013:"

A spokesperson for Redfin pointed out to the Weekly that California dominates the list:

In the list of the top 10 neighborhoods to watch nationwide, eight out of 10 are in California, and four are in the L.A. area, including Highland Park, Faircrest Heights, Eagle Rock and Glassell Park. The homes in these neighborhoods are still relatively affordable, but we expect to see the biggest price increases happen in these areas this year.

After bottoming out during the recession, many of the neighborhoods are expected to see an increase in value. Highland Park saw a 31 percent increase in median real estate value last year, according to the listing service and online brokerage.

Here's the whole list:

    A sometimes overlooked (but still incredibly unique) aspect of San Diego Comic-Con are the celebs available to sign autographs, as well as the autograph seekers themselves. If you've ever wanted to meet the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld or the guy who played Michelangelo in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chances are, as you wander the Autograph Area, you'll be able to connect with someone you didn't even realize you were waiting your whole life to meet!
