North Kingstown Housing Market Update August 2014


This North Kingstown RI single family housing market data update for August 2014 is provided by Ginny Lacey Gorman of RI coastal real estate.  The remnants of summer real estate market is behind us but August proved to be a slow housing month with home sales off 20%.  Yet,  year to date home sales here are still down a bit, 5%, over 2013 through August but home values are up by +7% during the same time period.  This is due to the higher priced homes and commanding good resale value during July and August.

In this southern RI coastal town it is about the community, life style, schools, Wickford Village, Narragansett Bay and great real estate that draws home buyers here.
