      Neighborhood: Riverside

      Zillow predicts Riverside home values will increase 3.6% next year, compared to a 5% increase for Cambridge as a whole. Among Riverside homes, this home is valued 98.8% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 13.4% less per square foot.

      Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In the Riverside market, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold fell 17.2% in the last year. The number of unsold foreclosures is 1.8% higher than in Cambridge, and 81.4% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Riverside home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Cambridge.
