Instead of playing Wordle, I thought it might be interesting to compare the prices of homes found in other towns named New Bedford.

I started in New Bedford, Pennsylvania, a quiet little spot, where the median age is about 45, the average income is about $50,000 and the median home costs about $167,900.

There's not much happening around this New Bedford, though, and good luck finding a DQ. The plus for living in New Bedford, PA is the cost of living is about 18 percent below the national average.

New Bedford, Ohio started with only several cabins and a tavern in 1825, and not much has changed since then. Amenities include dozens of supermarkets, hundreds of cafes and a new Dollar General. Homes start at $70,000-$450,000, with the median house price at about $275,000, but you won't find coffee milk and fresh scallops in New Bedford, OH.

Hold on to your hat. In New Bedford, Illinois, the median value for residential home transactions is $35,220. I can't help but just stare at that figure. Overall values are between $14,460 to $283,600 for top of the line. A word of caution here: when the realtor say the nearest town, Hooppole, is just a stone's throw, you may understand that $35,220 might be a tad too high.

New Bedford, New Jersey is famous for George B. Cooper, a politician who was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1858, but left after a year when Congress awarded the seat to his opponent in 1860. The median home value is $724,950. Officials say home values skyrocketed 20 percent in 2021, but most homes sold for 2.93 percent below asking price.

Realtors boast that in this New Bedford, homes sell in hours not days or months. Well, at least New Bedford, New Jersey is near the ocean, but can't compare to the beauty of our New Bedford's beautiful harbor and bustling seaport.
