Market guide

Zillow predicts 94702 home values will rise 3.1% next year, compared to a 1.4% increase for Berkeley as a whole. Among 94702 homes, this home is valued 3.9% less than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 18.5% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 94702, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 9.5% greater than in Berkeley, and 13.6% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 94702 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Berkeley.
