My Notes

You'll want to see this Ocean View Oasis located in one of the county's best neighborhoods. This 3,000 sf home features 4 spacious bedrooms and 2.5 baths. There's separate Living and Family rooms as well as a formal Dining Room. Warm hardwood flooring runs throughout much of the downstairs. There's also a large gourmet kitchen with granite counters, 3 fireplaces, 2-car attached garage and more!

Neighborhood: 95065

Zillow predicts 95065 home values will rise 3.2% next year, compared to a 3.5% rise for Santa Cruz as a whole. Among 95065 homes, this home is 99.3% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 6.1% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 95065, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 62.1% higher than in Santa Cruz, and 55.2% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 95065 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Santa Cruz.
