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.
