South Kingstown continues to have a good supply of homes yet the waterfront South Kingstown homes for sale are selling slowly. Only one waterfront South Kingstown home sold in May .

There are 43 homes in pending status in South Kingstown RI (pending sales are homes awaiting closing and the numbers are down by 1 home over April). Yet, the home absorption rate for South Kingstown homes for sale remains high and continues as a buyers market.

Mortgage rates remain extremely low for all home buyers! Why would you continue to pay rent if you can afford to buy- you are not building home equity, the home is not yours and you are missing out on income tax savings too!

Anita, that is the case...South Kingstown is a hot location for buyers.

Gita, many buyers are looking but looking not to buy...some can not buy at the level they desire to.

Barbara, it certainly is and for many reasons buyers think they can get homes on the waterfront for low is not happening...finding  a realtor to trust and guide will get you to the purchase..

Ginny I had to drive to RI today, and as soon as I saw the sign for South Kingston, and URI you automatically came to mind.  Which I had, had the time to stop at the Open House you were doing and surprised you, but I could not fit it in.  Maybe the next time :)

Now I see what you mean about the prices, Ginny. It seems you are bucking the trend a little in Kingstown.  Many areas are begging for inventory.
