We are just over a month into the new year, and 2021 is already shaping up to be a strong year in Rhode Island sales. As we analyze the market on a daily basis and monitor trends to keep our clients informed, it is also important to keep recent data in mind as we move forward.
2020 was a strong year in Rhode Island home sales. The year ended with a median sales price of $325,000 for single-family homes, which was a 14% increase from December 2019. According to the Rhode Island Association of Realtors, the monthly median price rose year-over-year every month in 2020, with nine of those months seeing double-digit increases.
In December, condominium and multi-family property sales increased by more than 39% year-over-year. The median price for a condominium was $250,000, and the price of a multi-family was $338,250, increasing by 11% and 19%, respectively.
The number of buyers from out-of-state increased by 75% from 2019, and we expect that trend to continue with the way COVID has transformed our work routines and daily lives. It’s no wonder that buyers are choosing southern New England!
