I am not a realtor so I am going to go ahead and say no. The schools arent great. I was born and raised still here and still live here because the market sucks and my house is not worth half of what I paid for it - and I live in Bunker Hill.. Avoid Waterbury at all costs.

As a resident of Waterbury and a Realtor I agree that prices are down significantly from the peak, however this is a nationwide issue due to the economy of the country and loose lending practices by predatory lenders and not a locally isolated problem. Of all the large cities in the state of Connecticut, I consider Waterbury as perhaps the best. We have lower homicide and crime rates than the other major cities. While our taxes are high, they are nowhere near as high as Bridgeport overall.

Unfortunately, we, as realtors, aren't allowed to answer that question because everyone has a different idea of what's acceptable. I heard of an agent selling a house in her neighborhood because she loved the area and the schools but it turned out the school system wasn't right for the buyer because their child had special needs and the school system they bought into didn't have a special needs program.
Luckily, I live and work in Waterbury so I can lend you the assistance you need to find the right neighborhood for you.

Hi Sherri, it may depend where exactly it is located in that zip code area. I would definitely recommend driving by. 06704 is in the northend section whereas 06708 would be more in the town plot area. 06705 and 06706 would be east end and 06710 would be overlook section. Would be more than happy to assist with your house search. Julie Lucia, Realtor, Showcase Realty 203-578-5631 cell;
