Rhode Island Real Estate

Jan 1, 2008
Rhode Island is one of the smallest states in the United States, making its population seem more extremely that it probably is per capita. Despite the recent housing issues around the rest of the country, Rhode Island has not seen a marked decrease in sales. While they have been affected by the mortgages and sub prime troubles it seems that the third and fourth quarter have seen increases in actual sales and many in the real estate market are projecting more home sales in the coming year. Currently like most of the country, you have a variety of choices in real estate.

Condominiums have become more popular with the aging generations. It was also seen in many cases that condominiums were more important to many homebuyers for the amount of square footage. Most individuals did not want a single family home or larger to have to clean so condominiums began to spring up everywhere, even in Rhode Island. Many of the condominiums are in downtown or on the beach of the state. This offers a home community for those who do not really want the larger homes. You will find that condominiums usually offer a three or four home per actual building complex. This means that the views of the ocean can be seen on two sides of the actual complex. In some cases, they may only house two condominiums on the beach to offer the best views.

Apartments are also offered in the downtown communities in the state to offer more affordable housing for those who are not ready to buy. If you are ready to buy, you may consider an alternative investment to the condominiums, such as purchasing an older home. Rhode Island real estate has many older homes to offer those looking to buy including historical homes. These homes may offer you a better market value for the price. In other words older homes need to be fixed up and if there is no significant historical value you may find the price is in the $150's to $250's making it a great investment. When you purchase an older home for investment, you are proposing work on the entire house to increase the value. This means that over time you will be able to see a double in the return. It makes a lot of sense for those who are first time homebuyers or looking to make a career out of real estate investments.

The other property type you have is the new constructions. While Rhode Island real estate does not have the huge housing boom of other states, they are beginning to great new communities offering new construction. These communities are often near the military base in the Rhode Island to lend affordable housing to those who need it most. The communities are offering schools and shopping districts near the homes to make it more convenient for the homeowners. The safety of these communities is seen as high, thus the appeal. If you are interested in Rhode Island real estate, you may also be interested in the job market.
