Neighborhood: Flatbush

Zillow predicts Flatbush home values will rise 2.5% next year, compared to a 2% increase for New York as a whole. Among Flatbush homes, this home is valued 219.7% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 12% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Flatbush, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 325% higher than in New York, and 67.6% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Flatbush home values from rising as quickly as other regions in New York.
