Exeter is a town in Washington County, Rhode Island. Matt grew up in Exeter Rhode Island and graduated from Exeter-West Greenwich High School. His family has lived in town operated Yawgoo Bakes and Barbecues for over 50 years, so when he lists and sells in Exeter, he truly feels like he's "going back home".  

Among the many great attributes of Exeter, appreciated by residents are the aspects that Exeter "is not", its not a destination town, its not a suburb, its not a place with happening night life and its not a place where "cluster zoning" happens frequently.  Residents of Exeter like having a quiet, rural, slowly developing community that is still right in the heart of South County. This small town has only 6,500 residents and has a median home value of $313,000. Many parts of Exeter require 2-5 acres zoning, so the homes are well spaced out. Gentlemen farmers, home brewers, hunters and fishers love the culture of Exeter. Despite its rural roots, Exeter is not so far removed from civilization; The north western section of town, closer to the school and the Arcadia Management Area has recorded sales as low as 75,000 for a fixer upper summer cottage on Boone Lake, ranging all the way up to 600,000 for modern built 3000 square foot colonial in 2015. 

 

The more South Eastern quadrant of Exeter, close by the University of Rhode Island, Wakefield, North and South Kingstown, as well as downtown East Greenwich and bordered on the southernmost by the Hope Valley section of Richmond, is in a similar Real Estate price point as the northern section, but further from the school and closer to "South County" life.  South County Trail is becoming a hot area for commercial opportunities that still fit within the rural fabric of the town.  If you're interested in learning more about the market value for your Exeter property, the link provided will generate a quick estimate, that you'll receive within 5 minutes of submission.   So remember, it is a home coming and special marketing service that you receive with the Matt Patty Team, when you call them to list your Exeter home, farm or horse property.
