Narragansett Town Beach – Narragansett RI

primary residence or an investment home?  Well these ‘orange stickers‘ placed on homes by the police are the Scarlet Letter ‘A’ (orange letter ‘A’) which denotes the home is an active party home.  It means the home occupants have violated town ordinances and the owner has been probably levied a fine. With many URI students renting off campus it is a two edged sword here- on one hand the number of home rentals keeps the town’s taxes low (less education expense) and on the other hand the students do like to party and may disrupt quiet neighborhoods.



Dealing with Narragansett home rentals takes care and thoroughness from a knowledgeable Real Estate Agent- using the right Real Estate Agent is a must.  Buying next door to an orange stickered house is not probably where you want to be living.


Knowing the Narragansett neighborhoods goes a long way with me when a

It is about being near the beach in Narragansett RI

prospective buyer queries me about Narragansett homes they have found on line.  Homes and locations are not what they appear and they need to be ‘qualified’ for purchase.  This is part of my responsibility as a Narragansett Real Estate Agent that is due my clients.


Narragansett RI has great neighborhoods from Scarborough for the beach crowd, to Harbour Island for the Salt Pond sailors, to Great Island a stone’s throw from the fishing port of Galilee to Anawan Cliffs for living on Narraganset Bay and so many more.  It is the location with amazing and pristine beaches, great restaurants and Block Island a ferry away that draws buyers to our town.


So if you are looking to buy in the Narragansett RI area, give me a call and let me shake out the right Narragansett neighborhoods for you at the best price.  I will make sure it is away from the orange stickered homes!
