South Kingstown RI December 2013 Year End Market Report

The South Kingstown RI home real estate market has been a strong selling market
all year with number of home sales up 11% over 2012 for 2013!  Home prices have increased year to date for 2013 over 2012 by +.003%.

Although the sales price increase in 2013 was negligible, 2012 had a larger price increase.  South Kingstown has been a very strong town in the improving RI real estate market.


Year                    Homes Sold             Average Sales Price    List Price/Sale Price          Days on Market

2011 256 $ 314,424 93% 127
2012 305 $ 331,634 94% 127
2013 338 $ 333,000 95% 123

Interesting that even with the home price increase in sold homes, the number of Days on Market for a home until agreement stayed fairly constant year over year.  A better List Price of homes sold  to Sale price crept upwards.  So for 2013 there was a 11% increase in home sales over 2012 and just a .003% increase in home sale price.
