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

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.
