Short Sales in Narragansett RI 02882 – Narragansett Homes for Sale


Along with the blooms of spring come the increase of Narragansett homes on the market as well as short sales.

Short sales

 With approximately 7,000 households in Narragansett RI real estate, short sales remain in the minority in houses on the market as compared to other RI cities like Warwick or Providence, RI.


A Narragansettshort sale’ or being ‘under water’ on your home in real estate refers to the ‘shortage’ of monies the lender, mortgage holder, will be shorted when the home is sold because the market value of the home has fallen below the amount the homeowner owes on it.  The home is now worth substantially less than the homeowner paid for the home.  Due to a hardship such as loss of job, divorce, medical problems, the homeowner needs to sell the home and can no longer afford to pay the mortgage. 

As I have shared before in past posts, a short sale truly begins when an offer on a home for sale is received at less than the mortgage owed on the home and then presented by the seller’s listing agent to the lender. There is a successful process to follow in order to make it to the closing table in a reasonable amount of time, so ensure you work with Realtor® who knows how to do short sales.

With 180 Narragansett homes for sale and a steady move in housing numbers in the town, short sales present a way to buy a home that is priced to sell (if the short sale agent has done their job and priced it at a comparative market sales price).  Depending upon the lender, some short sales can close within 6 weeks to two months or less if the offer is a cash offer while others can take up to 3 months.   If you are interested in searching for Narragansett homes for sale, short sale or otherwise, now is the time to do it with interest rates low.
