North Kingstown RI Real Estate Market May 2014

The North Kingstown RI May 2014 home market is a viable and active RI real estate market.  Stabilization of home prices and a higher list price to home sale price are important factors in a better real estate market.  That is what we are looking forward to in this home sales market as we enter the summer season.

Home sales January – May 2014 compared to January – May 2013 shows a 2% decline in home sales and a 3% (from $335,000 to $325,000) decrease in home prices.  This is a slight retrenchment for home sellers here…this decrease in home prices is due in part to the long winter slowdown in home sales that we experienced here.  The question is will sales pick up to draw down the higher home inventory now?
