The Government Shutdown may affect Real Estate over the coming weeks. Perhaps not market values, but existing transactions, and buyers looking to make offers. Being a Realtor, I’m certainly not furloughed and neither are most other private sector jobs. But in a community like Newport RI, it may end up affecting us more directly than we’d like.
Nearly 900,000 federal employees were told not to come into work on Tuesday. That’s nearly a third of all persons being paid directly by the US. These people include members of the DoD, National Parks, Memorial Administration, FHA and IRS. Since 1975 there have been 17 government shutdowns, averaging nearly a week. Ranging from 1 to 21 days each.
How it Affects Newport County:

Class A office and retail space is now available in Newport. Located in the heart of Newport's wharf district, 10 Brown & Howard residential, retail and office development is nearing completion. Marketed by Jen Pierik and Matt Hadfield of Hogan Associates Real Estate, the first office condo sale came in at full asking price prior to being put on the market. The 1750 sq ft office space is the first of the seven Office/Retail condos to be put under agreement. With a high demand for newly constructed Class A Space, it is not surprising a sale happened so quickly. Local developer, Mark Bard, who had the vision to develop the site, knew Newport needed a building like 10 Brown & Howard. Based on the response from perspective buyers, Bard was absolutely correct.…

Waterfront real estate in Newport County is as good as it gets for summer vacation homes. For many buyers, however, sticker shock can get in the way. Don’t lose hope! Take a step back and consider the advantages of only a water view? Walking distance to the beach is almost as good, right? Or maybe you’re just looking for a place to get away. Here are a few helpful tips to help in your search and get you into a life-enhancing beach home for less!
-Search a bit further from the beaches than you typically would
Most “beach homes” are on the water or within a ¼ to ½ mile of the beach, but these are in high demand, making them much more expensive. But if you search just a tad further you can find a much better deal and only have

Beach houses come in many shapes and sizes in Newport, RI. Mansions adorn our coastline, condominiums overlook the harbor, and summer cottages line sandy roads leading to Hazards, Gooseberry and Bailey's Beaches off Ocean Drive. While all offer the promise of lazy days on the shore, few can match the location, condition and charm of this restored bungalow on Almy Pond.
Not only is this newly renovated cottage on a pristine estuarial pond teeming with wild life, it's also just four doors away from Bailey's Beach, one of the most beautiful and exclusive beaches in the Northeast. One part of Bailey's is a very private club, but the eastern end is a scenic stretch of sand accessible to neighbors by foot…

I am proud to announce I’m officially a homeowner. Finally! I’ve been practicing real estate for nearly four years with the goal of purchasing my own
little slice of island paradise. It was quite the experience for me to sit at the other end of the closing table; to sign that stack of papers, and feel what dozens of my buyers have undergone. Here’s a bit about my experience:
The Right Realtor
I found the best realtor in town for me. That was, of course, me, because I understand my needs and wants. I wanted a multi family - 2 or 3 units, but at times I considered a single family I could turn around myself. It can often be good to view products outside of your original needs and wants. This helped me realize my original decision for a…

It's that time of year again when every Newport, RI boat owner wonders where they're going to put their boat for the summer. One option many overlook is buying their own dockominium and securing their space forever. As the economy improves so does the size of the waiting lists for space in the marinas.
Newport Harbor has 2 different spots to buy a dockominium. One is at Lee's Wharf Marina and the other is Newport Onshore Marina. In the last five years both associations have completely renovated all the docks making for a great experience.
Many people ask the form of ownership they will get if they buy a dockominium. Dockominiums are transferred just like any other condominium in Rhode Island…

Everyday RI homebuyers ask, “Should I buy now, or should I wait for a better deal?"
These days my answer is decisive: “NOW is the time.”
Coming from a real estate broker, these words can seem like a sales pitch - a canned response suitable for any market. I am writing today to give you facts to back up my opinion. I hope, 10 years from now, someone who bought a house after reading this blog will thank me for pushing them over the edge. I imagine how happy they will be with a 3.5% mortgage on a low purchase price negotiated during one of the strongest buyers' markets of our lifetime. Ten years down the road they will have significant equity in their home, and this will give them the freedom…
