With the snowy and wintery season upon us, this is an unusual and sluggish pattern for Jamestown home sales. This is normally a buying period for waterfront homes in Jamestown.   Actually the heavy snows have negatively impacted the home buying market in January in Jamestown too.  We are all waiting for the snow to move North and stay gracefully on the mountains!  Enjoying the island is one of the most pleasurable things to do on this island of Jamestown-Beavertail State Park, marina, restaurants, shops, beaches and short hop to Newport.

Pending home sales remain up which is a good  indication that Jamestown home sales will be steady. There are 2 homes in pending status in Jamestown RI this past month and being near the  coast and on Narragansett Bay or near the ocean is a big draw for many buyers due to current pricing.
