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!

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.
