    Neighborhood: Cambridgeport

    Zillow predicts Cambridgeport home values will increase 2.4% next year, compared to a 2% increase for Cambridge as a whole. Among Cambridgeport homes, this home is valued 67.5% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 14.4% less per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Cambridgeport, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 70.3% higher than in Cambridge, and 62.9% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Cambridgeport home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Cambridge.
