Zillow predicts 44074 home values will rise 2.2% next year, compared to a 3.4% increase for Oberlin as a whole. Among 44074 homes, this home is valued 68.1% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 42.5% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 44074, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 31.9% higher than in Oberlin, and 216.9% higher than the national average.
