Neighborhood for 18 Melville Avenue

View larger map
Zillow predicts South Dorchester home values will increase 1.7% next year, compared to a 3.5% increase for Boston as a whole. Among South Dorchester homes, this home is valued 126.8% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 39.2% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In South Dorchester, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 120.7% higher than in Boston, and 16.9% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent South Dorchester home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Boston.
