Market guide

Zillow predicts Hyde Park home values will rise 2.1% next year, compared to a 0.1% fall for Chicago as a whole. Among Hyde Park homes, this home is valued 995.1% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 46% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Hyde Park, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 20.7% lower than in Chicago, and 85.6% greater than the national average. This lower local number could help Hyde Park home values rise more quickly than other regions in Chicago.
