Phil, Home Buyer in 85053

The 85053 zip code is not even close to "Maryvale". It's in Deer Valley. Maryvale is 12 miles southwest.

Maryvale is an old Phoenix community that has about a 40% foreclosure rate. Deer Valley is more stable. If your $90K /- average is based on the real Maryvale, you're misrepresenting this area. I bought this house (3351 W. Phelps, 85053). Zillow still shows it around $200K in value. Only 3131 W. Paradise Lane has gone into escrow for less in the surrounding square mile. Your accuracy therefore is questionable.

The accuracy on Zillow, and most other sites providing statistics, is questionable at best. They generally don't even take into consideration the condition of the property, upgrades, etc. I have seen many of the values on those sites being off by more than 50%, so the date many times is useless. A professional running the data is the best alternative to get good reliable numbers.

Good luck.
