Market guide

Zillow predicts 02740 home values will decrease 2.2% next year, compared to a 2.7% decrease for New Bedford as a whole. Among 02740 homes, this home is 3.4% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, but is priced 7% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 02740, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 50% greater than in New Bedford, and 57.1% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 02740 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in New Bedford.
