Finding a Home in Historic Providence, Rhode Island

If you google find a home in Providence all kinds of numbers come up. How do you navigate in a time where there is so much difficulty due to low inventory? But first, in case you’re coming from out of state here’s the historic fact of Providence. Providence is the capital and most populous city of the state of Rhode Island and is one of the oldest cities in the United States.[7] It was founded in 1636 by Roger Williams, a Reformed Baptist theologian and religious exile from the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

College Hill is a historic neighborhood of Providence, Rhode Island, and one of six neighborhoods comprising the city’s East Side. In anticipation of this blog we did a video facebook post last week through KWCommand technology. Subsequently, we created one this week to compare and found that checking the MLS there is at the time of this writing exactly 3 homes currently Active/ForSale. Last week’s data showed 8 homes, that shows how quickly home sales are moving.

College Hill is the most affluent neighborhood in Providence, with a median family income of nearly three times that of the city as a whole. As stated earlier, there are 5 more neighborhoods to consider. The East Side is a collection of neighborhoods in the eastern part of the city of Providence, Rhode Island. It officially comprises the neighborhoods of Blackstone, Hope (commonly known as Summit), Mount Hope, College Hill, Wayland, and Fox Point.[1][2][3]


This is why it is so important to work with an established team of agents like The Dias Team. Using the Keller Williams technology and working closely with the day to day listing on and off of the MLS we can quickly navigate to help get your bid in front of the seller. Likewise, if you are selling a home we will work patiently and diligently with the immense amount of  bids that are currently offered.

We will be posting video’s of the neighborhoods on the East Side of Providence throughout the week on our facebook page. Check it out and while you’re there don’t forget to like our page!
