    Market guide

    Zillow predicts 94707 home values will rise 2.7% next year, compared to a 0.8% rise for Kensington as a whole. Among 94707 homes, this home is valued 34.4% less than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 11.7% more per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 94707, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 2.4% higher than in Kensington, and 19% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 94707 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Kensington.
