    Rising Prices

    Prices rising is likely a result of two things:

    1. Inventory is low. A healthy real estate market is considered to have 5-7 months of supply. The current market in Bristol, RI has just under 2 months of supply.
    2. Interest rates are at historically low numbers. Many homebuyers pay closer attention to the affordability factor and how much the monthly obligation will be, so when interest rates drop, their ability to pay more in the purchase price rises.

    • There are currently 22 condos actively listed for sale in Bristol, RI/
    • Two of the 22 condos are listed at over $1,000,000.
