Market guide

Zillow predicts 60093 home values will fall 2.7% next year, compared to a 2.5% decrease for Winnetka as a whole. Among 60093 homes, this home is 204.3% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, but is priced 2.2% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 60093, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 4.3% higher than in Winnetka, and 762.9% greater than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 60093 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Winnetka.
