      Zillow predicts Old City home values will rise 1.2% next year, compared to a 0.9% decrease for Philadelphia as a whole. Among Old City homes, this home is valued 178.8% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 21.8% more per square foot.

      Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Old City, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 79.3% less than in Philadelphia, and 76.2% less than the national average. This lower local number could help Old City home values rise more quickly than other regions in Philadelphia.
