New Hampshire Lakefront Inventory Report, End of Summer Update

2014 End of the Summer New Hampshire Lakefront Inventory Report.

What a great summer with very comfortable temperatures. We turned on our A/C only 4 nights the entire summer. The end of the summer also marks the end of NH Fair Season. Only 2 State Fairs left,  Deerfield the weekend of the 27th and the Sandwich Fair Columbus Day weekend.

Buying!

If you have been waiting on the sidelines to make your move to purchase a lake home, this fall maybe your best opportunity. The Boston and NH Seacoast markets are booming and prices are on the up swing in those markets.  The Lakes Region from Ossipee to Winnipesaukee in my opinion has been flat. It is only a matter of time before the real estate boom just to the south reaches the Lakes Region. One exception is the Sunapee area, that market has been selling at top dollar all year long. This maybe the best time to add a vacation home to your investment portfolio. Why not enjoy the fruits of your labor at the lake every weekend. Diversify with an investment you can enjoy with the family and now is the perfect time in the NH Lakes Region. Interest rates are still low and pricing is still reasonable.

There is plenty of lakefront inventory with a total of 562 homes.

179 homes – $250 to $500,000, 96 homes  – $500 to $750,000, 71 homes – $750 to $1 million,  46 homes – $1 to $1.5 million, 31 homes  -$1.5 to $2 million and 82 homes priced over $2 million.

Popular Lakes by size  Ossipee 3000- Winnipesaukee 42,000- Squam 6700 – Newfound 4100– Sunapee 4000 – Winnisquam 4000 – Wentworth 3000 – Merrymeeting – Bow – Silver – Waukewan all 1000 acres – Great East Lake 1700 acres

Selling!

If you have been thinking about selling your lake home the end of the year is a good time to test the market. The showings you get will give you the feedback needed on what improvements need to be made if your home does not sell quickly. You don’t want your home to be one of the 100’s that lingers on the market for over 180 days.  Get your home ready for the market and list it for the months of October to December 20th and then take it off the market until March of 2015 if it does not sell.DSC_1172

My lake pick this month is Lake Wentworth located in Wolfeboro. This uncrowded 3000 acre lake is perfect for the family looking for privacy and a shoreline that is not dotted with McMansions and it has islands you can actually dock on to explore. The lake is minutes to downtown Wolfeboro the “Oldest Resort Community in the United States”.
