Finding Up & Coming Neighborhoods?

How can I find out out what areas in my region are up and coming areas? I want to invest in an older home properties in an area that may be inclined to appreciate as opposed to other areas that may be static or declining. Are their sources or organizations that might have information where I can go to to research this possibility? Interested in feedback/ideas. Thanks.
