Market guide

Zillow predicts East Boston home values will rise 3.7% next year, compared to a 1.7% increase for Boston as a whole. Among East Boston homes, this home is valued 58% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 3.2% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In East Boston, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 13.8% higher than in Boston, and 45.7% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent East Boston home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Boston.
