Squam Lakes Facts and Real Estate

Squam Lake is a lake located in central New Hampshire, south of the White Mountains,

Squam Lake was originally called Keeseenunknipee, which meant “the goose lake in the highlands”. The white settlers that followed shortened the name to “Casumpa”, “Kusumpy” and/or “Kesumpe” around 1779. In the early 19th century, the lake was given another Abenaki name, Asquam, which means “water”. Finally, in the early 20th century, Asquam was shortened to its present version, Squam.

The 1981 film On Golden Pond was filmed in the town of Center Harbor on Squam Lake.[2] There is one tour boat service offered by the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, based in Holderness, that will show visitors where all the filming locations are situated, as well as items of natural significance.

Squam Lake is a nesting site for loons and is a good place to see them in breeding plumage during the summer months. Bald eagles and great blue herons are also known to nest on the lake.

The lake is classified as a cold- and warmwater fishery, with observed species including rainbow trout, landlocked salmon, lake trout, lake whitefish, smallmouth and largemouth bass, chain pickerel, horned pout, and white perch.

Squam Lake has about 30 named islands and numerous smaller, unnamed islets. The named islands are:

Basin Island Birch Island Bowman Island Carnes Island Chocorua (Church) Island Duck Island Great Island Groton Island
High Haith (at 243 acres (98 ha), the largest island, bridged ) Hoag Island Hubble Island Kate Island Kent Island Kimball Island Laurel Island Little Loon Island (nesting site to bald eagles ) Long Island Loon Island Merrill Island Mink Island Mooney (or Moon) Island Mouse Island Otter Island Perch Island Potato Island Sheep Island Three Sisters (three separate islands) Utopia Island Yard Island

Buying or Selling Your Lakefront Home in NH. Who should I call?

Buying A Lake Home! 

Some basic steps will move the process along smoothly. 

Talk with your banker and get a pre-qualification letter on how much you can spend and then sit down with the family and decide what you feel comfortable spending.  If your banker says you can spend $650,000 but your comfort level is $425,000 look at homes in your comfort zone.

Luxury Winnipesaukee Home For Sale 

If you are unfamiliar with the area you should take an afternoon to drive by your top lake choices and some homes selected on those lakes. Realtors take great pictures and you will eliminate a couple of the lakes and most of the homes.

Be loyal, find a realtor who specializes in the type of property you are interested in buying and stick with them. If your looking for a lake property my wife and I have been in the business since 1999 and know the lakes. If you want a Historic home built in the 1800’s we really aren’t your go to agents.  Basic question to ask to find a knowledgeable lakefront realtor. Ask them about lake sizes and shoreline rules. If they can’t answer how big the lake or building setbacks you might not have a knowledgable agent.

Showings!! The lakes region is not your typical market, 95% of the homes are assisted showing, which means no lock boxes and you have to set appointments. Showings need to be coordinated ( you – seller – listing agent – buyers agent ) You can’t call at 6 pm on Friday to see 8 homes on Saturday morning. Call Wednesday for Saturday if you want your day to go smoothly.

When you find the home of interest my wife and I will get you sales comparisons, walk you through the paperwork, explain to you what the DES Site Assessment is and how it affects the property you are interested in.

We will also supply you with local vendors to help you, home inspectors to title companies and lawyers. 

Selling your Lake Home

Select an agent that is familiar with the type of home you are selling, you feel comfortable with and is local to the market.

Marketing your home is important. Look for an agency that has an effective local marketing program plus reaches buyers nationally and globally. Our Sotheby’s brand exceeds all online marketing programs. Review our statistics.

In addition to the companies print and online marketing examine the  social media presence that will be used to promote your homes listing. Linkin, Facebook, Twitter, Blogging etc.

Photography sells homes, compare the video and photo portfolio each agent has and pick the agent who will puts your home online in the best light.  Also compare listing descriptions. You will be surprised what you will find there is  a vast difference from agent to agent in descriptive detail. 

Price your home to sell. Unrealistic pricing only delays the sale. Don’t use price reductions as a fall back as you try to move the home.

If you are currently renting your lake home ask your tax advisor if a 1031 Exchange might work?

Getting Ready to Retire, Review Your Options with Your Tax Advisor

The Internal Revenue has some guidelines in place when you sell your primary residence. You typically can exclude a profit of as much as $500,000 if you’re married and file jointly with your spouse,  single, the maximum amount is $250,000. The amount is based on your profit, not on the total sale price of your home.

To qualify for the maximum amount, you must have owned the home and lived it in as your primary residence for at least two of the five years prior to the sale. Contact the IRS or your tax advisor prior to selling your home to get a firm basis of your tax or tax relief.

Even if a homeowner can’t pass the ownership and two to five years prior, that person still might be eligible for a “reduced maximum exclusion.” To qualify, the sale of your main home must be due to one of the following reasons: “a change in place of employment,” or “health,” or “unforeseen circumstances,” the IRS says in Publication 523 (“Selling Your Home”).

The IRS defines “circumstances” as “the occurrence of an event that you could not reasonably have anticipated before buying and occupying your main home.” That would include such things as “natural or man-made disasters or acts of war or terrorism resulting in a casualty to your home, whether or not your loss is deductible.” See Publication 523 for more details.

Login to the Internal Revenue Website for additional information and to verify the content of this post or contact your tax advisor.
