Home prices in much of Napa County will increase slightly this year, according to a study conducted by an online real estate site.
Zillow.com expects home prices in 244 of the 245 zip codes in the Bay Area to rise in 2013, according to a story in the San Francisco Chronicle.
The only exception will be the 94515 zip code in Calistoga, where home prices are predicted to bottom out this year.
The story suggests that the primary reason for the price increase is the tight inventory, 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.
