Hi Ginny,

Pretty good numbers. We have about 68 homes on the markets here in Carlsbad. The lowest level we have had in years.

Have a great day in North Kingstown.

Best, Clint McKie

Ginny, I felt the winter blues in December but January is showing great potential. The weather is a hindrance but the next few months should be very active.

Ginny I am surprised the number are that far down from last year.  Charlestown is a great place to own a home, I would imagine Buyers will be looking to purchase in Charlestown again soon.

Yes, it is interesting on the decline in home sales & prices here but a lot had to do with inventory which just wasn't there on the lower end for the buyer unfortunately.  See 2014 better for this town.
