Good Morning Al,

That would depend on what kind of lifestyle you are looking for, what you are looking to pay, what kind of transportation you have etc.

Many of the complexes require a year lease, but I am sure if you are good you may be able to negotiate that.

Providence area can change pretty quickly from block to block even.

It can be bad during the typical rush hour times 5-6. It's not bad early as 7 or late as 8+, though. Either 495 or 495/95 is fine and pretty comparable.

Abby Ashley answered:
Are you having trouble getting it rented? Or are you not getting enough in rent to cover your expenses? Once you convert it to a single, what do you plan on doing with it? Your best bet is call a Realtor and have the realtor take a look at it and what the demands are for the local housing (single family vs multifamily) Also, as a Realtor, we see lots of houses and know what works and what doesn't with conversions. I will be glad to help you with your decisions. Good luck! ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
The more it looks like a "work in progress", the more that it will attract vandals and thieves:
If you have good insurance; is the most important thing.
Do not leave tools at night.
Do not leave new materials, like light fixtures, etc.
Leave a light or two on each night; never the same one.
Come by on an irregular schedule; don't be predictable.
Leave a radio on, loud enough to hear from the outside.
Hire a guard dog.

James Merida answered:
I wouldn't say its a big problem, but it's always a possibility. I personally own and live in property nearby the area and my wife and I were concerned about the same issue when we were in the process of renovating a foreclosed home. Ultimately, reach out to your neighbors, give them your number, share your concern. I know my neighbors are great for keeping an eye out for each other's property and security. Definately, stop by unexpectedly and sporatically. And lastly, hire a good crew that will make sure to keep they're belongings minimal and secure, and as out of site as possible. Good luck with your endevour however far along you are and if you need anything, feel free to contact me as a neighbor.

Josh Greenwald answered:
Hi there, I'd be happy to get you more info on this property and others like it. The price per square foot is typically calculated by dividing asking price by the livable area of the property. Or if you want to know price per square foot of acreage, then you use the building lot as the denominator instead. Get in touch with me at or 401 527 1994, though, and we can talk about this question and whatever more you are considering in your search. Best, J ... more
