Home sales were down in February by 27% over the prior month due to the Blizzard of 2013, home sales were down over last year at the same time period and home inventory levels increased by 8 homes (equal to what was sold in February). Yet, the Narragansett RI home sales market had been a strong selling market in 2012.  The past home sales numbers support a strenthening of this market as the spring season comes upon us.

I would think that we are now heading into th most active time of the year for this market. I have the pending preapprovals for second homes on the CT shoreline.

Yes, that blizzard definitely caused a LOT of things to slow down.  March should be an outstanding month, though.

Hi Ginny,

Looking at the sale price ratio. It it at about 91% not too good when wanting to sell your home. But look at the numer of homes in closing is 16 of them. There is a lot of work to do and March will help bring out the itchy feet for a change, like buying a new home.

Have a good day in North Kingstown.

Best, Clint McKie

Ginny, Great report on the Narragansett, RI real estate market. Competition is fierce it would seem. Luxury home areas are quite different than other areas.

Fewer waterfront Narragansett homes for sale under $800k now...they've been snapped up.  Showed one yesterday on a half acre, potential dock but needs major improvements of at least $ looking for a listing now down there...they don't make anymore waterfront property!

Very well done with the market report Ginny. Narragansett RI home sellers should make sure that their home's pricing is right or buyers will refer to other active properties. All the best!
