Pricing Waterfront Homes…and Water View

North Kingstown RI Homes


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

Waterfront Wickford RI

Nothing like the North Kingstown RI waterfront

depends on the home… but I price a home to sell in a reasonable amount of time and not languish on the market for 365+ days like many other North Kingstown Real Estate Agents do.  I take the seller through the comparables that sold and the expired homes that did not sell.  In addition, I look at the pricing of the current waterfront North Kingstown homes for sale that are comparable.  Weighing the similarities and differences as compared to the would be clients home.

It is a known fact that ‘old’  inventory of waterfront and water view North Kingstown homes that continue to have downward price adjustments ‘following’ the market instead of being ‘before’ the market raise questions in buyers’ minds.


What is wrong with that property a Real Estate Agent is constantly asked!  Maybe nothing but the price is too high…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 waterfront and water view homes works very well for my satisfied clients.   My job is to sell your home and I can do it if the waterfront North Kingstown home is priced right.


I prefer not to have my ‘FOR SALE’ sign hanging out there for an extended time period of time .  I see sellers take this course time and after time with the same Real Estate Agent who could NOT sell the home initially for the seller.  Where is the logic in this for a home seller?  It is time to use a more internet savvy Real Estate Agent who understands the North Kingstown RI real estate market we are in.

Are you investing in the real estate mythology of  ‘Realty Company’  big 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 the price.  Scrutinize the home marketing strategy on the internet for the Realtors’ courting your listing.  90% of all buyers search on the internet to buy – if your home does not have a strong internet presence there, it is less likely to have the buyer traffic needed to sell a waterfrontor water view North Kingstown home!


Ask at least these questions of prospective Real Estate 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 and market online on a myriad of well founded web sites, feature properties on their own web site, do slideshows, virtual tours, numerous home pictures, videos, GOOGLE mapped homes all to have your property found again & again by buyers?  Those are the questions to ask and check out a current property they have on the market: GOOGLE the address.  Do your homework sellers, please.  It may be eye opening.  First to ensure aerial video marketing is done for my clients properties to get them sold.


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.


– Do they use State of the Art Aerial Photography to showcase their waterfront and water view RI homes for sale?  I do.


– Do they discuss the new Flood zones and how your property is impacted by them?  My knowledge of the FEMA flood maps, elevation certificates now needed to sell in a flood zone area and pricing is ultra important to a savvy waterfront seller.


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