North Kingstown Condo Queen | North Kingstown Condos for Sale Well it may be braggadocia and as a North Kingstown real estate agent I have to chuckle about the title.  North Kingstown condo queen is what a fellow associate said to me the other day as I toured condos with my buyers.  His question in front of my clients was "Where are all these condo buyers coming from you are getting.  I mean, he said, not to be rude...you've shown 6 set of buyers in the last 2 weeks on my condos?" He has not Googled me for sure, phew!  Well maybe it would be his wake up call too.  Where is he operating in real estate...like a dinosaur he sells based upon a 'For Sale' sign in the front yard, an occasional open house held and through the local MLS.  Not all of that works anymore especially in a RI coastal...

RIP my Dear Lil Bear You all know how it is...you become attached to your pets and then they need to leave you in life.  Someone said to me the other day we love them so much since they are not judgmental, always loving and forgiving and keep your secrets well.  If you do not have animals, you would not understand at all this feeling.   I had to make a difficult decision whether to prolong my maine coon's cat life with difficult breaths or let him go peacefully.  I chose the latter since it was better for him...than me.   An animal feels the pain of illness like we do and they deserve a graceful way to pass on.  The sweetness of this cat was amazing and his ability to let me know when there was trouble in the house was like a sixth sense.  He was a rescue animal that found his home in m...

Is There North Kingstown Affordable Home Construction?   This North Kingstown real estate question is being asked by many first time home buyers.  Affordable new home construction is very limited in town right now.  The biggest change has occurred with the latest current prices that builders are allowed to charge for an affordable house...it has dropped by $35,000 over 2012. Builders can not afford to build a house, such as in the North Ridge subdivision, with current home designs.  They just would lose too much money on the home construction.  So the scramble is on to re-tool the designs and be able to put up affordable homes in subdivisions that meet the government guidelines.   From homeowners who are downsizing to smaller properties to first time home buyers, the demand for affordab...

North Kingstown Property Revaluation Letters   North Kingstown Property revaluation letters were received this week by all property owners in North Kingstown RI real estate.  As you may know it is required that a revaluation occur every 3 years for statistical purposes and every 9 years for full property re-evaluation in accordance with state law.  This current re-assessment was a statistical re-evaluation based upon market values and current property sales.
