A particular neighborhood may be identified as a good market for buyers in a metro market favorable to sellers overall. Learn more

      Foreclosures (per 10K)

      0.5 Streeterville
      3.6 United States
      Zillow predicts Streeterville home values will rise 2.8% next year, compared to a 0.3% fall for Chicago as a whole. Among Streeterville homes, this home is valued 164.1% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 23% more per square foot.

      Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Streeterville, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 14.3% higher than in Chicago, and 606.7% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Streeterville home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Chicago.
