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 You can view other available lake listings on our website. www.nhlakesrealty.com 

Pemigewasset Lake is a 249-acre water body located minutes off Exit 23 on 93 in the towns of New Hampton and Meredith. This warm water lake has an average depth of 8 feet and a maximum of 29 feet.  There is an Island that is uninhabited called Kelley Island, a great location for blueberry picking late July early August.  

The shoreline is dotted with summer camps and year round homes.  Much of the shoreline is open with loons nesting. In the summer you will find bass fishing in the morning around the lake and the afternoon changes to slow pontoon boat cruises to water sports.  In the winter the surface turns into a village of bob houses and snowmobiling. 

In 10 minutes you can be in downtown Meredith and 30 minutes away the Outlet Stores in Tilton or skiing at Loon, Waterville, Cannon or Ragged.  You will find restaurants, hiking trails, golf and attractions minutes in any direction. Pemi Lake Homes - Profile of Pemigewassette

Bow Lake is 1149 acres with an average depth of 10 feet and a maximum of 65 feet. The lake is mesotrophic with clear water. The lake is classified as a cold and warm-water fishery, with rainbow trout, brown trout, smallmouth bass, and white perch. 

This popular lake is one of the largest lakes in southern NH. It is an easy commute from Portsmouth or Manchester NH and about 1.5 hours from Boston. There are 7 islands and Bennett Island is my favorite with a Bald Eagles nest and Loons nesting to view from shore.  Loon Island, Long Island, Beech Island, Pine Island,  Rye Island, and  York Island are the others. 

Golf courses are close by and Antique Alley is located on Rt 4 in Northwood. You will find several antique stores and a great location to purchase granite counter tops. ( Bob’s Granite ).  Bow Lake Home - Bow Lake Homes for Sale

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

Winnipesaukee Real Estate

Shopping for a Lake Home? Is winter a good time to purchase your dream house? 

In short, the answer is yes of course and yes be careful.  In NH the lakes and ponds are frozen mid-December to mid-March. You are purchasing a home with the most important attribute that you can’t view, the waterfront bottom. The lake bottom can be sandy, rocky, hardpan or mucky with weeds. Just because the shoreline is sandy that does not guarantee sandy bottom swimming. Concerned what the bottom is, talk to the neighbors, get an ice auger and drill some holes in the ice to confirm you are buying a lakefront home that you will be happy to own.  ( You can not add sand per NH Shoreline rules ) NH Lakefront Homes - Winter lake and mountain view

If you are looking for an expanded inventory wait. During the winter months, many homes that did not sell in the fall are shut down for the cold winter months.  New listings and expired listing will start to come on the market at the end of March and the whole month of April into May. 

The typical winter inventory in NH is about 100 homes in the greater lakes region. In the spring the inventory will expand to 400 homes.  Additional key dates for increased inventory are Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day. 

All I can say is be patient and do your homework. You find that dream home. You want to build memories not a reflection on every visit of what you should have done. 

Looking for that perfect NH Waterfront Property? Call The Dream Team!  We’ll make your Dreams come true.
