Market guide

Zillow predicts Back Bay home values will fall 3% next year, compared to a 1.6% increase for Boston as a whole. Among Back Bay homes, this home is valued 18.4% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 21.3% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Back Bay, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 12.4% higher than in Boston, and 38.2% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Back Bay home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Boston.
