Knowing the waterfront and Jamestown RI coastal real estate area is part of the RI home discovery process.  If you are buying or selling a home in coastal Jamestown RI real estate, you want to understand this local home market.   It is important to know that although real estate taxes are low here, the average price of a home is significantly higher than surrounding Washington and Newport county properties.


Here is the current Jamestown RI real estate market report provided by Ginny Lacey Gorman of Jamestown RI waterfront real estate for the month:

Knowing the Jamestown RI real estate market is essential if you are considering listing your home for sale or in the market to buy.  Especially if your home is in the luxury Jamestown dollar range.  Eighteen luxury homes $1 million and over sold this year.


Jamestown’s home absorption rate is still in a buyers’ real estate market in some price points.   In addition, the luxury $1 million plus Jamestown home sale market commands a large part of the homes for sale.  Yet, the under $600,000 home is the one that buyers are most searching for and are limited with house inventory.
