Market guide

Zillow predicts Fort Greene home values will rise 6.7% next year, compared to a 2.8% increase for New York as a whole. Among Fort Greene homes, this home is valued 194.1% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 1.6% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In the Fort Greene market, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold shrank 3.1% in the last year. The number of unsold foreclosures is 262.2% greater than in New York, and 10.6% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Fort Greene home values from rising as quickly as other regions in New York.
