So when a seller asks me how I came up with a selling price for their waterfront North Kingstown home, there is no simple answer since it

North Kingstown Homes - Priced to Sell

Lessons Learned- North Kingstown Home Pricing


depends on the RI real estate home… but I price a home to sell and not languish on the market for 365+ days like many other North Kingstown Real Estate Agents do.  I take the seller through the comparable homes that sold, the expired listings that did not sell or remain on the market at the price point the seller ‘thought’ was right.


In addition, I look at the pricing of the current waterfront/water view home competition and where they are currently priced and weigh the similarities and differences as compared to the would be clients home.


It is a known Real Estate Agent fact that stale dated inventory of waterfront and water view homes that keep having downward price adjustments ‘following’ the market instead of being ‘before’ the market raise all sorts of questions in buyers’ minds.  It truly takes three key ingredients for waterfront and water view buyers to find that right home: location, price and condition.


Why not work with a North Kingstown Real Estate agent who prices the homes right for final sales price and within 99% of asking prices on homes sold initially?  My method for listing luxury waterfront and water view homes is tried and true.  My job is to sell your home and I can do it to the utmost degree if the waterfront or water view North Kingstown home is priced right.


I prefer not to have my ‘FOR SALE’ sign hanging out there for an extended time period and then oh, guess what extend yet again.  I see sellers take this course of listing time and after time with the same Real Estate Agent who could NOT sell the home initially for you the seller.  Where is the logic in this for a home seller?  It is time to use a more resourceful Real Estate Agent and understand the North Kingstown RI real estate market we are in.

Are you investing in the real estate mythology of ‘Realty Company’ names as if that makes a home sell?  Do not be sold out to a real estate company which tells you what you want to hear on PRICE so that they obtain the listing – and then works on you every week to reduce it.


Scrutinize the marketing strategy of home marketing for the Real Estate Agents courting your listing.  What is the their internet strategy? 90% of all buyers search on the internet to buy – if your home does not have a strong presence there, it is less likely to have the buyer traffic needed to sell a waterfront or water view North Kingstown home!

Ask these questions of prospective Agents:

-Do they assign a showing agent or agents to show the house but like ‘their’ name on every for sale sign for their company…yet they never show up to show the house to the prospective client?
– Do they blog, post on a myriad of well founded web sites, featured on their own web site, do slideshows, virtual tours, videos, google mapped all to have your property found again & again?  Those are the questions to ask and check out a current property they have on the market by GOOGLing the address.  Do your homework sellers, please.  It may be eye opening.
– Has the Real Estate Agent given you a ‘punch list’ of required to do’s before the house goes on the market and staging essentials to assure your home has the ‘attraction’ for buyers.


It is the North Kingstown agent who makes or breaks the selling of the waterfront or water view North Kingstown home- understand that fact first.  Do not be afraid to fire your Real Estate Agent if they are not doing the job for you.

    Hi Ginny,

    As an agent who specializes in luxury waterfront property ,I agree with your philosophy for determining market value 100%. Listing a home close to true market value is always the best strategy to get a home sold. Whether it is a short sale , a traditional sale,or a REO ; for every month a property sits on market, the operating costs continue to add up negatively impacting the seller’s net as the property chases the market downward to reach it’s true market value.

    It is refreshing to meet a Real Estate Agent with your conviction when it comes to servicing her clients in the luxury waterfront market in North Kingston. Accurately pricing the property is the first step to driving sales in today’s market.
