Another data point about the all-important American housing market.

Zillow, the real estate guesstimate people, are out with some new research that shows homes within a mile of a Trader Joe’s or a Whole Foods are worth twice as much as the median home in the rest of the country.

If you own a home and a Trader Joe’s opens nearby, look for a 10 percent bump the first two years its open.

Of course, there’s a whole lot of other things that go into the value of a home near a Trader Joe’s or a Whole Foods — do I need to lay that out? No. 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
