South Kingstown RI Home Sale Report September 2014


The South Kingstown RI home sale report for single family homes for September 2014 indicates a 11% decrease in home sale volume over the prior month.  The Fall season decrease of sold homes has shown no increase in home sales and home values year over year through September.  Interesting since the consumer view is that real estate picked up greatly in 2014 but the data says otherwise here.

  • Average days on the market: 140 (32% increase from prior month)
  • Sales currently pending: 54 (-7% decrease over prior month)
  • South Kingstown home absorption rate indicates it is just barely a balanced real estate market.  Home absorption is the amount of time it will take to sell all the homes currently on the market.  This is a real estate market that neither favors buyers or sellers.

  • Breakdown of the 39 South Kingstown sold homes is as follows for the month: 22 homes sold under $300,000, 10 homes sold between $300,000-$400,000 and 7 homes sold for more than $400,000 but less than a million.  No homes sold for $1 million or over this month.  The under $300,000 home market continues to be the strongest buyers interest in home sales.  Looking at the continued high number of pending homes awaiting closing, this housing market and community is very desirable for all new home buyers to consider.
South Kingstown RI Home Sale Report September 2014 gives the home buyer the information they need to make a qualified  home purchase.  Home sellers need to be very aware of pricing and their competition in the real estate market now…understand the secret sauce of pricing a home and use it well.

 The fall market has begun with a 11% decrease in home sales over the prior month.  Yet, 2014 year to date home sales through September 2014 show just one less sold home over the same time period, year to date, through September 2013.  Home prices have decreased by .003% 2014, year to date, as compared to last year through September.


What we had in South Kingstown home sale values is a slight up and down this past summer.  A lot of this has to do with the strength of the real estate market under $300,000 here which has been most of the home sales recently.  Still this is a healthy real estate market to buy into.
