1BR prices have increased 12.3% over last month and 1.7% over the same period last year. 2BR prices have decreased 7.08% over last month and decreased by just .03% over the same period last year. Nice rebound for the Newport area.

Price Per Square Foot-Downtown
1BR prices increased 18.99% this month and increased 27.68% over the same period last year. There are a ton of first time buyers out there which would explain this increase. 2BR prices are down 13.6% and also down 10.3% over the same period last year. 3BR sales are down 27.9%and are down 25% over the same period last year. There's still some softness in the 2BR and 3BR markets, but will see how this plays out with all the new contracts that have entered the market this month.
