    Block Island was purchased from Massachusetts by a group of 16 settler's in 1661. It later became part of Rhode Island. These 16 family names are memorialized at Settler's Rock located at the northern point of the island. Almost half of the Land on Block Island is preserved as open space. Dubbed as one of the last great places in the northern hemisphere, the beauty of the island remains largely unspoiled and safe from the ravages of time.

    Islanders have a particular challenge when it comes to keeping a home on Block Island. The influx of wealthy vacationers building second homes (dubbed 'McMansions') has caused the value of homes to be out of balance with the rest of the state. Though property taxes remain relatively low, the median price of a simple 3 bedroom is inflated enough to remain out of reach of island families who wish to settle here. The island as well as the state has taken steps to remedy the situation through creating affordable housing opportunities. Lists of residents wait to qualify and have their name drawn by lottery as each new project get completed.

    New construction is still a viable industry island wide. For a while summer cottages from the 60 s and 70's were being purchased, torn down and the footprint replaced with a much larger beach home. As a result there is a myriad of extravagant dwellings scattered around the island's perimeter and higher grounds.

    Real estate sales on Block Island continue to hold steady. There is a 3% tax on each sale that goes to the land trust to preserve open space. Participation in the MLS has made it easier for off island brokers to identify properties for sale and collaborate with island realtors. If you are looking for properties, is is recommended that you visit the island and choose from one of our qualified, reputable and knowledgeable agents.
