  • Charlestown’s home absorption rate: 5 months of home inventory. Based on this most recent home sales data, the Charlestown real estate market is a balanced market for the second month in a row. However, some homes are withdrawn from the housing market for the winter and impact this figure.

  • Home absorption is the amount of time it will take to sell all the homes currently on the market without any additional homes being added to the current real estate market.


  • Breakdown of the 14 Charlestown RI home sales is as follows for the month: 5 homes sold under $300,000, homes sold between $300,000-$400,000 and 4 homes sold over $400,000 and  3 homes sold for over $1 million.  In December, the under $400,000 home generated as much buying interest as the over $400,000 homes.  Also, average home price increased significantly due to the over million dollar home sales.
  • Home sales equal to the prior month.
