Mortgages

Neighborhood: 95127

Zillow predicts 95127 home values will rise 8.5% next year, compared to a 9.4% increase for East Foothills as a whole. Among 95127 homes, this home is valued 128.5% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 9.6% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 95127, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 140% higher than in East Foothills, and 31.4% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 95127 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in East Foothills.
