Home prices in Castro Valley will rise from 6 to 7 percent, according to a study done by an online real estate site.
The site, zillow.com, predicts home prices in 244 of the 245 zip codes in the Bay Area will rise in 2013. The only exception will be the 94515 area in Calistoga, according to a story in the San Francisco Chronicle.
The story says the biggest reason for the projected price increase is a lack of homes for sale on the market.
Even with the increase, prices are still well below the peak prices of a few years ago.
