Extraordinary access to the Silicon Valley, SF International Airport, and San Francisco. Drop out without being remote! The privacy and serenity are unrivaled. The view stretches to Mt.

Neighborhood: 95060

Zillow predicts 95060 home values will increase 3.8% next year, compared to a 3.5% rise for Santa Cruz as a whole. Among 95060 homes, this home is 119.5% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, but is priced 25.2% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 95060, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 10.3% greater than in Santa Cruz, and 69.5% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 95060 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Santa Cruz.
