While hear you might want to think about a permanent vacation home in our lovely state.  Just about all of our lakes have easy access to major ski areas.  Our current lake inventory is just under 600 homes.  Pricing starts for a cottage on non motor boating lake ( canoes and kayaks only ) from $175,000 up.  Lakes with full motor boating rights start in the mid $200,000 range.  Typical homes on the larger lakes ( Winnipesaukee,  Squam, Winnisquam, Sunapee, Wentworth, Ossipee, Newfound ) start at $600,000 and go up to $10 million for luxury Winnipesaukee Estates. There are 4 available at that price point right now.   Check out this blog about some of the famous people seen around Wolfeboro Mitt Romney to Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore, don't forget  our wrestling friend in Meredith Triple H or Aerosmith boating around Lake Sunapee.

Lakefront  sales from 2012 to 2013 year to date have been pretty consistent.  2012 we had 268 total waterfront homes sold as compared to 293 in 2013.  The major difference is that in 2012 we had  a greater number of homes home selling  $1 million dollars and over.  Sales over $2 million dropped 67% from last year's totals.  Sales in the $500 to $1 million range remained consistent with 81 in 2012 and an increased to 87 in 2013.  The larger change came in the lower price points $200,000 to $500,000.   2013 had a 9% increase in sales to 132 lakefront units sold.
