My office(well me in particular) puts together comprehensive sales chart data for about 12 communities in RI as well as the state as well(including my former home town of NK ). Each chart details the transactions for the past 13 months and puts it in easy to read format.
Please contact me below and I would be more than happy to share this data with you. I put in a tremendous amount of effort putting this information together so I am not comfortable just posting my data here.
You can only compare ranch style homes to ranch style homes and 2-stories w/o finished basements to 2-stories w/o finished basements. A ranch style home will have a higher $/sq ft due to the larger foundation and roof (large fixed cost) distributed over the square footage, whereas a 2-story's fixed costs (smaller roof and foundation) are less and distributed over the same square footage. Properties with similar land value should be considered too (premium lots vs low value lots).
There are a lot of things to consider in this analysis, which is called an appraisal :)
Hope this helps, Ginny Gorman
- each neighborhood has its own set of features and attractions, so you need to be specific
- homes of similar size and acreage
- immediate vicinity of the comparables that you're using (same neighborhood)
- overall condition of the subject house versus others for sale
- what has sold within the past 90 days
Your best bet is to consult with a Realtor. I've worked in the NK area quite a bit, lately, and I'd be happy to give you some individual insight..............401-783-1699......Jean Allard
