Lake Homes on the Market March 2017: NH Lakefront Property Inventory Update: March 22, 2017 

NH Lakefront Property Inventory Update: March 22, 2017 

April 1 is the start of the salmon fishing season on Winnipesaukee and signals that the boating season is at the door.  The lakes area is lacking inventory so quality homes are selling quickly. Don’t wait if you see a home you would be interested in. 

My wife Paula and I  have been helping you find and sell dream lakefront properties in the greater Lakes Region of NH since 1999.  The waterfront market remains constant with retirement and executive buyers looking to find a cottage or home for their family. Buyers are looking for turnkey homes in move in condition, no painting,  no flooring ready to relax in properties.  Homes that meet this criterion even if priced on the high end of the market are selling. Click below for inventory on selected lakes!

In the lakes area we cover  ( Ossipee- Winnipesaukee- Squam - Newfound – Sunapee – Winnisquam – Wentworth – Merrymeeting – Silver – Pleasant )  along with the other 250 smaller affordable lakes and ponds in the area.

The state currently has 388  lakefront homes available. There are 224 homes available in the greater lakes region right now including island homes.  51 homes are under agreement that should close shortly priced $200,000 to $9 million. 

Popular Lakes by size  ( Ossipee 3000- Winnipesaukee 42,000- Squam 6700 - Newfound 4100– Sunapee 4000 – Winnisquam 4000 – Wentworth 3000  ) homes start in the $550,000 range to well over $10 million for a luxury estate.    ( Merrymeeting – Bow – Silver - Waukewan all 1000 acres – Great East Lake 1700 acres ) These lakes pricing starts are in the $500,000 range for a year round home.

 Ossipee: 8 active properties are listed, $209,000 for a seasonal cottage to $890,000 on the main lake. I think Long Sands Road has the finest views in the lakes region.  Sunsets to spectacular mountain views of  Shaw, Whittier, Chocorua, and the magnificent Mount Washington Ossipee, in my opinion, is the best value in the lakes region.  Don’t forget to inquire about Silver Lake in Madison also, this 900-acre gem of a lake has some great homes available. ​

New Hampshire Lakes Region Lakefront Real Estate Update, What's Happening today in 2017?

New Hampshire Lakes Region, Lake Home Real Estate Update, What's Happening today in 2017?

In the prior three to four years the lakes region experienced an excessive lakefront home inventory and buyers had their choice of so many homes some never even made a decision waiting for the perfect home to come along. 

2017 the market lacks lakefront home inventory to sell. Example, a home was listed last Wednesday on Hermit Lake that has a 10 HP limit and 220 acres. I brought a buyer over on Sunday and was told there were already multiple offers on the table with four showings after our visit. The market is Hot and applies to homes priced $300,000 to $Millions. Lake Winnisquam Real Estate views for porch

Currently, there are 191 lakefront homes listed in the Sunapee Region, Lakes Region, and Ossipee Area. Last year we had almost triple that inventory.  

My advise, if you see a lake home that has the criteria you are looking for, sandy beach, sunsets and the home features an adequate number of baths and bedrooms get in your car and drive up to see it. Try to lock in the home prior to a weekends worth of showings and getting into a multiple bid situation.

A lake home is a financial investment for your portfolio and a dream for your family to build memories for years to come.  Visit our Website to View Lake Homes.
