North Kingstown Real Estate January 2016 Update


This is the North Kingstown RI single family housing market update for January 2016 and year end provided by Ginny Lacey Gorman, top selling RI real estate agent of RI coastal real estate.  Winter is here and the Wickford RI and Narragansett Bay waters are exhibiting their blue grey colors.  The first month of the new year is showing the slowdown in home sales over the prior month down by 36%.  Yet pending sales are up by 3% for the same period.  Home sale values are up by 4% in January 2016 over January 2015 and home sales are up 21% over the same period.  This is the third year in a row since the Great Recession of 2008 that home values have rebounded a bit here.

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.  North Kingstown is nearly in the center of RI which makes commuting to Providence or south an added bonus to all who live here.
