RI Real Estate Recovery - 02/27/10 10:57 AM
While I firmly believe that areas of the state are recovering nicely and there is significant job creation, other areas of RI are still in trouble and will continue to see declines in values. Northern RI in general has significant unemployment and oversupply of foreclosures which will continue to have a depressive effect on any recovery for some time to come. Southern RI is fairing better due to the BRAC or Base Realigment and Closure program. The most recent BRAC report was issued in March of 2005, wherein Newport would receive a net increase of 800 jobs. This has been whittled (2 comments)
Rhode Island Real Estate - 02/23/10 07:04 PM
The real estate market in RI continues to recover. With very little new construction in the past 18 months, our inventory has been reduced dramatically. The first time homebuyer tax credit has significantly increased demand in the low end of the market and, recently, there has been an impressive resurgence in the high end of the market with multiple multi-million dollar properties either under contract or sold! Our unemployment situation is not good state wide, however, Newport County has seen a nice increase in employment due to the US Naval Base in Newport. Recently NUWC, Naval Underwater Warfare Center, reported that (0 comments)

As New Home Sales See Renewed Activity,Buyer "Wish Lists" Shrink in Size, But Not Quality - 02/07/10 07:48 AM
By John Tarducci, CMP, CRB Senior Vice President New Homes Division www.raveis.com (from http://blog.raveis.com) Emerging from the economic slowdown that began in 2007, the new home construction sales market in the Northeast has turned a corner. Although signs of stabilization vary widely by region, and even by town, there are clear signals that the rate of decline has largely leveled out and is paralleling the turnaround in existing home sales. In Connecticut, for example, 2009 building permits should settle in the 3,000 range by year's end. While still far short of the more than 11,000 permits issued in 2005 or the 7,746 (0 comments)
