North Kingstown RI 02852 – Real Estate Market Report- First Quarter 2012

 

Great beaches in North Kingstown RI

Sales are up first quarter 2012- North Kingstown Home Sales

 Is the North Kingstown housing market improving in 2012 over 2011?

 

A review of the home sales the first 3 months of 2012 over the same period in 2011 demonstrates that North Kingstown real estate sales are up by 8% in single family home sales and down by 16% in condo sales.

However, both single family home prices and condo sale prices in first quarter 2012 are showing an increase in sales price.

This is encouraging news for single family home sellers since the number of homes for sale is still plentiful in the North Kingstown real estate market.  Condo sales continue to struggle with a lack of sales volume in this current real estate market.  Moving that inventory or homes and condos is the ultimate goal to get to a ‘balanced’ inventory  market between sellers and buyers.  Here are the North Kingstown real estate stats, as follows:

             Note: new condo complex with 1 level living skewed sales since listings were never truly on the market.

North Kingstown Condos sold 1st quarter 2012 (January 1- March 31, 2012)5
          Average Sale Price: $215,200

Overall this is good news for the Rhode Island real estate market and buyers need to be on their toes to be ready, willing and able to put an offer in quickly on some hot properties.  I am continuing to see homes go into agreement in less than 2 weeks in many cases.
 Working with a North Kingstown real estate agent that knows the local real estate market, prices and negotiates well for clients is the goal for buyers and sellers now.
