      Market guide

      Zillow predicts Hyde Park home values will fall 1.2% next year, compared to a 0.3% decrease for Chicago as a whole. Among Hyde Park homes, this home is valued 140% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 15.7% more per square foot.

      Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Hyde Park, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 39.6% lower than in Chicago, and 273.3% greater than the national average. This lower local number could help Hyde Park home values rise more quickly than other regions in Chicago.
