Lakefront Homes in NH. Skiing Hiking Snowmobiling Sailing

In New Hampshire the Lakes meet the Mountains and our state is a number one destination four season vacation and retirement target. Why? Our lakes are deep with crystal clear water and the major ski resorts are just a short ride from any of our 250 plus lakes. On Winnipesaukee for example, you can boat to major ports around the lake for a shopping or dining experience. You can actually leave your car in the driveway and go grocery shopping or to a concert by boat. Mount Sunapee and Gunstock Ski Resorts almost touch the lakes. Where else can you be boating on Saturday and at a Nascar Race on Sunday.4515649

The summer is winding down and we are moving into the State Fair and foliage season. No place can you find a mountain canvas of spectacular colors that NH offers during foliage season.  Fall leads to skiing at Attitash, Loon, Cannon, Sunapee, Waterville, Wildcat or snowmobiling our 1000’s of miles of trails that cross the state. Winter leads to spring and we start all over with some great salmon fishing, hiking, biking, flowers blooming and the lake ice receding.

In addition to a wonderful destination to build memories with your family New Hampshire has no sales or income tax and our motto is Live Free or Die.

NH Lakefront Inventory Update May 2016

NH Lakefront Inventory Update May  2016 

Sign Up for my News Letter and get all the current lake listings Sent to you! 

Summer is right around the corner but winter still lingers.  Northern New Hampshire had snow on May 15.  Come on, 78 degrees then snow.

Spring sales are on a record pace with 58 waterfront sales. 26 were recorded over $500,000 with another record sale of $6.3 million. 95 homes are currently under contract. It is turning into a sellers market with quality homes selling within 10 days.

Right now inventory is still off the peak last year with 364 homes currently available throughout the state. What I find extremely interesting is that 124 of the 364 lakefront homes are priced over $1 million. 92 are priced $300,000 to $500,000.  Great time to buy if you are in the over $1 million market and a better time to sell. We have loads of buyers out shopping with limited inventory.
