East Greenwich RI Real Estate Market February 2014


The East Greenwich RI real estate market in February shows a winter chill in the housing market.

 In 2013 from 2012 East Greenwich real estate saw a 3% home sales price increase.  What will 2014 bring in the housing market here?  It is too early to tell but this winter put a crimp on home buying activity and inventory stayed low.

A stunning suburb of the city of Providence, commuting distance to the big city and top rated schools draws the home buyers here.   This RI real estate market’s strong yearly trend in single family home sales was demonstrated in 2013 and home sales this month have slipped by 33% from the prior month.  The wintry weather has hampered home buyers in their search but remember spring will bring the buying opportunities.

            Average home sold for $413,000 at 94% of list price and days on market was 74.  The average home sale price has increased here.  Home inventory rose by a modest 8%.

               Median home sold for $345,000 at 94% of list price and was on the market for only 45 days prior to an agreement.  It shows here that the East Greenwich home market is very tight.

Comparing East Greenwich RI real estate sales year over year February 2014 over 2013, showed an decrease in home sales by 60%.  This is due to lack of inventory that is well priced as well as the weather.  Home prices are up by 3% over the same time period.

Rhode Island real estate projections are anticipated to be slowing for 2014.  However, East Greenwich has remained one of the stronger home markets and I expect this to continue this year.
