      Market guide

      Zillow predicts Shadyside home values will increase 6% next year, compared to a 3.7% increase for Pittsburgh as a whole. Among Shadyside homes, this home is valued 33.7% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 6.5% less per square foot.

      Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Shadyside, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 43.9% lower than in Pittsburgh, and 54.3% lower than the national average. This lower local number could help Shadyside home values rise more quickly than other regions in Pittsburgh.
