NH Lakefront Inventory Update February 2016

Was it really a winter in New Hampshire. Winnipesaukee just declared ice in February 15th and the tickets just went out for our annual ice-out contest. I think we are ready for an early spring!

Winter sales are on a record pace with 40 waterfront sales. Seven were recorded over $750,000 while the majority were sold $280,000 to $450,000 range. 

Right now inventory is 50% off the peak last year with 311 homes currently available throughout the state and 261 in the greater lakes region. What I find extremely interesting is that 101 of the 261 lakefront homes are priced over $1 million and 55 are priced $600,000 to $1 million.

Winnipesaukee - 116 homes - with 3 island homes priced $299,000 to $365,000. 10 of the homes are priced $400,000 to $600,000, 28 are priced $600,000 to $1 mil.  75 homes are priced over $1 mil with 17 priced over $4 million.

Winnisquam - 11 homes -  Priced $449,000 to 3 listings over $1 million. Easy access to the Boston market and Gunstock Ski Area.

Sunapee - 17 homes - Only 4 of the 17 are priced under $1 million and 7 over $2 million. The lake is minutes to Mount Sunapee Ski Area one of the most popular resorts in NH

Squam - Only 4 homes - $399,000 for a seasonal cottage on Little Squam to $1,975,000 million  On Golden Pond NH's second largest lake.

If a waterfront home is not in your price range there are many water access communities with docks or just purchase a dock slip and buy anywhere in the lakes region.

A new addition to our website is lake maps at  You can also narrow your search to lakefront owned or shared waterfront by clicking that search selection. You do not have to wade through listings to sort owned and shared.
