As 2013 is nearing its end, South Kingstown’s real estate market has slowed in home closings in November.

South Kingstown RI is a choice South County town to reside in with Wakefield village as the main town center and the village district.  In addition, with many villages and hamlets within it which correspond to what we would call neighborhoods in RI.  Located on the Atlantic Ocean it is great choice in a southern RI town location.  It has become a Providence commuter’s haven too.  Nearness to the ocean, great restaurants, country and beach atmosphere all plays its role when owning a home here.
