While median home prices in Glendora's 91741 zipcode jumped, home prices fell slightly in the city's southern neighborhoods, according to DataQuick.

The median price of single-family homes sold in Glendora's northern neighborhoods showed some growth, while home real estate in the city's southern zipcode projected a dip in prices.

While median price of single family homes in the 91741 zipcode was up 14.1 percent at $592,000, the median price of homes in 91740 zipcode was down 1.6 percent at $310,000.

The thing to remember is that it's very hard to compare prices in a single zip code. You have to realize that there are not enough homes sold in a single zip code each month to get accurate statistics. 91740 only had 12 closings in May while 91741 had 14 closings. It could be easy to have all 12 homes sold in aparticular month to be dramatically higher or lower than the norm. We have actually had months in which 0 homes are sold in one of many local zip codes.Home prices are rising in all of Glendora as well as the surrounding communities. Things are looking up.

More sold in 91741, because the homes are generally nicer, as is the location. Someone 'selling homes', would not want you to necessarily believe that.
