Aquatic invasive species decals required for out-of-state motorboats

Aquatic invasive species decals required for out-of-state motorboats

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) is reminding all persons operating a motorboat on New Hampshire public waters that is registered in another state (other than New Hampshire) of a new requirement to purchase and display a New Hampshire aquatic invasive species decal from NHDES. The new law (RSA 487:43) went into effect on July 1, 2019.

Decals can be purchased online for $20 each. You can purchase decals online at NHDES Invasive Species webpage, by clicking on the link for the boater decal, or at https://nhdes.usedirect.com/NewHampshireWeb/.

The decal must be displayed within 3 inches of a boat's valid registration decal. Decals should be placed on the port side of the vessel. Decals expire on December 31 each year. Proceeds from the decal program will be used for prevention and management of invasive aquatic species in New Hampshire.

For more information, please contact Amy Smagula at amy.p.smagula@des.nh.govor (603) 271-2248.

Navigating a NH Lakefront Home Purchase - April 2021 Covid 19

Navigating a NH Lakefront Home Purchase - April 2021 Covid 19

Lakefront home inventory is at an all-time low in the NH lakes region. We have 32 active lake listings on March 29, 2021, only 8 are priced below $600,000. When a quality lake home is listed it typically lasts less than 2 days on the market and with delayed showings, some buyers are actually purchasing sight unseen, a risky move in my book.NH lake home interior picture

If you see a waterfront home of interest I urge you to make an appointment immediately.

Typically new lakefront listings start coming on the market in March with an increasing inventory into April. We did see a small surge in inventory mid March. Lets hope we an inventory increase in the coming months.

Sign up at our website for new listing alerts or visit our website at this link and you will find newly listed lakefront homes - one click -  New Lakefront listings 

Feel free to contact us and we will send you homes that meet your criteria!

Flood Insurance Changes are on the horizon! 

Flood Insurance Changes are on the horizon!    March 2021 update 


The flood insurance market is undergoing a variety of changes.  We are watching this closely and will continue to keep you updated as we know more.  Below is a quick summary of current changes and trends. Ossipee Home, many homes lie in the flood zone

- Flood Insurance was historically only available through FEMA.  Private Flood Insurance Carriers have now emerged and can offer competitive quotes and options.  Mortgage companies are now required to accept Private Flood Insurance.  In the past they could require coverage be placed through FEMA which was often more expensive.

- FEMA is planning to review zoning, flood maps, and premiums.  FEMA feels that flood insurance is underpriced and this review could result in changes that require flood insurance in areas not previously required and overall increased flood premiums. They are targeting October 2021 for this change.

- NH has accepted the most recent update to the FEMA flood maps on January 29, 2021.  This is resulting in immediate changes to NH real estate and many properties are either being required to carrier flood insurance for the first time or being moved into a higher rated zone.

Below are a few articles that go into these topics in more detail. 

Let me know if you have questions or want to discuss any of this in more detail.

Lake Home Purchase Considerations in NH l Waterfront homes for Sale

Lake Home Purchase Considerations in New Hampshire

Lakes can vary in size and water quality. One lake might work for one family and not for your lifestyle. Research all aspects of the property you are interested in prior to investing.

Some research/homework needed when considering buying a waterfront property. 

  1. Water Quality - Oligotrophic is the best!  Lake Winnisquam Real Estate - Waterfront homes for sale
  2. Is the swim area bottom sandy? You might have to step into the water to find out. 
  3. Boating opportunities? Motorboating or kayaks only? Jet Skis? 
  4. How busy is the boat traffic at the home's location? 
  5. Fishing? Trout, Small or Largemouth Bass, Salmon
  6. Ducks and Geese are nice to look at but they can become a nuisance.
  7. Is there milfoil? If yes do they have an active mitigation program?
  8. Flood Zone? Ask about an elevation certificate.
  9. What is the water depth? 
  10. The ideal lot is level with sunsets and mountain views.
  11. Winter usage? Skiing, Skating, Snowmobiling? 
  12. Prior to buying talk to the neighbors!

NH Lakefront Real Estate Covid Market is Painfully Hot!

NH Lakefront Real Estate Covid Market is Painfully Hot!

Simply put there are more buyers than lake homes on the market. When lake properties hit the market buyers are lined up at the door making offers. It is a vicious seller's market and a time you need a buyer's agent on your side. 

Just because the home is on the water will it meet the lifestyle you are looking for? You can change the home but what about the water quality? Is the lake bottom deep enough to swim, sandy or muddy?

Here are some basics, have a bank letter in hand or proof of funds to purchase. Talk to your lake specialist on how to construct an offer that has a chance of winning the bidding process. Lakefront homes for sale in NH - waterfront luxury homes NH

Why New Hampshire? Lifestyle of Course!

Why New Hampshire? Lifestyle of Course!

The New Hampshire advantage makes New Hampshire not only one of the finest vacation destination in the country but a great place to work and retire. Some obvious reasons are no sales, income tax, inheritance tax plus a low crime rate. 

When I was young NH was commonly referred to as Cow Hampshire. Yes we still have Dairy Farms but we have 7 lakes over 3000 acres and 48 - 4000 foot mountains challenging the most aggressive hikers. In addition to over 250 quality lakes we have 19 ski resorts all within 30 minutes of the lakes region plus 15 cross country skiing destinations along with all the back woods trails available. Snowmobiling is found across the state along with more than a dozen ATV destinations. Don’t get me started on the wonderful fishing opportunities, salmon to bass.
