Active - Active With Contract - Pending - Confused? 

NH Lake Homes for Sale  - Lake Winnipesaukee Real Estate 

Question:  I keep seeing some listings online that say Active with Contract or Pending.  What does this mean?  Is it available or not?

When you are searching for a home online you may notice some homes say “Active” while others say “Active with Contract” or “Pending”. What is the difference?

Active – Home is actively available on the market and does not currently have a contract on it. The seller in this case may have received offers but they have not been accepted.  Don’t linger go see a listing that is active before it goes active with contract or pending. 

Active with Contract  – There is an accepted contract on the property and that may have contingencies. The contingencies may include financing or inspections. With a short summer lake home selling season sellers may want to continue showing their home in case one of the contingencies falls through and the buyer is forced to back out. A buyer if interested in a home that is active with contract may want to put in a back-up offer in hopes they can move into the #1 position if the home becomes available.  

Pending – This means the home is under contract and the seller is not currently seeking to continue marketing the home. Most contingencies have been removed once a listing goes pending. 

New Hampshire has hundreds of quality lakes to choose from. Many focus on real estate on our larger lake such as Winnipesaukee. Many others would prefer to own a home on one of the quieter lakes such as Waukewan or Merrymeeting.  Contact us and we can assist you in your search. www.nhlakesrealty.com

How to navigate the new Lake Home Selling Strategy! Summer 2019!

BUYERS NEED TO TAKE NOTE- YOU NEED AN AGENT TOO!

First, let me say that some of my best friends are listing agents. But, they have a job to do.  

As of late, many listing agents are employing a strategy to create momentum and frenzy around new listings that is great for the Seller but not so great for Buyers.

This strategy is "No showings until OPEN HOUSE scheduled for ..."  

With so few listings on the market,  this creates a frenzy with anxious Buyers rushing the property at the Open House and sometimes in an effort to win the Sale they will release standard contingencies designed for their benefit.  Releasing home inspections or other due diligence items can have a negative impact on a Buyer down the line.  Especially in the regulation-heavy waterfront market.

I recommend that serious qualified Buyers connect with a Buyer Agent and make sure that the Buyer Agent is involved in the home buying process from the beginning.

Lady of the Lake Realty has been assisting Buyers with Lakes Region purchases since 1999.  We are well versed in the rules and regulations surrounding waterfront/water-access purchases and are ready to help Buyers through the process from viewings to closing.  We can offer suggestions for waterbodies or properties that match your wish list.  With 200+ lakes and ponds in our area, there are many hidden gems that Buyers may not be aware of. 

Call us for a consultation today.   ( scroll to the bottom to view lakes and home we cover )

Squam Lake profile and information

Lakefront Monday highlights different lakes in New Hampshire. This page is sponsored by Lady of the Lake Realty in Meredith NH. If you want information on a lake e-mail us for lake profile.

Squam Lake Information 

Squam Lake has been known by many names. Keeseenunknipee, then shortened to Kesumpe around 1779. In the 1800s, it was renamed to Asquam, and finally Squam. Squam was the 1981 film site for On Golden Pond. Big and Little Squam Lakes are naturally spring-fed and connected by a channel in Holderness. Big Squam is NH second largest lake at 6,791 acres, Little Squam is 408 acres. Towns around the lake include Ashland, Holderness, Sandwich, Center Harbor, and Moultonborough. The lakes have 67 islands. There are no boating restrictions and the water quality is oligotrophic, the best.  The lake has a maximum depth of 98 feet but my advice is get a lake chart to navigate the rocky bottom.  While on the water boating expect to see lots of wooded shoreline and more woods driving around the lake. Most of the turn of the century estates sit back from the water.  The boat launch is located in Holderness along with a few commercial establishments, make sure you visit the Squam Lakes Science Center. In the winter major ski resorts are 40 minutes from Holderness and don’t miss ice harvesting every January. Squam Lake Homes for sale - view of squam lake
