The East Greenwich RI real estate market in April 2014 is showing a spring chill this month in this housing market.

 What will 2014 bring in the housing market here? The year-to-date 2014 real estate sales numbers through April show a 45% drop over the same period in 2013.  Much of this lag in home sales is due to limited show ready home inventory.
