The national average for home values may be $174,800, but Philly’s is higher. Here, the median home value is $199,200, a number which Zillow says is the result of a sneaky 3.3% spike every year.
According to the report, Greater Philadelphia Area home values are 13.9% higher than the rest of the country. Using this data, Zillow predicts a 0.9% rise in area home prices “over the next year (July 2014-July 2015)”.
