Eco-Friendly Sustainable Green Building, Energy Efficiency is the Trend!

What is trending in real estate? Eco-friendly / Green Building  real estate trends are growing in popularity,  home buyers are looking for ways to reduce overall energy costs.  

According to the National Association of Home Builders, the average new home in 2015 was expected to be roughly 2,200 square feet, roughly 10% smaller than homes built 5 years ago.

In Ashland New Hampshire in the Squam Lake Watershed, Sippican builders have taken green building techniques to a new level.

Squam River Landing is building Custom Energy Efficient Homes using sustainable building practices.  The community is connected to Squam through Riveredge Marina where you will find all your boating needs met. The lake and mountain view homes are surrounded by 900 acres of conservation land where you can watch the eagles soar above in this quiet peaceful community overlooking Squam. Homes are built and customized to fit your lifestyle. They are built with high-performance construction materials and geothermal heating and cooling. Community amenities include over two miles of walking trails, a clubhouse with outside patio and a bathhouse at lake level. Access to Squam is available through deeded boat slips, or boat houses via Riveredge Marina, an affiliated company of the Squam River Landing Developer. A lovely beach is located at the base of the community. Close to Plymouth University, Holderness Prep, Major Ski Resorts, multiple golf courses.

Vintage Winnipesaukee Waterfront with Investment possibilities!

Waterfront listings on Winnipesaukee range in price from $800,000 to $16,000,000.  In addition to waterfront owned you have island homes, condo's and water access properties with deeded private beach access.   

There are not many opportunities around the lake to build your dream home while enjoying your summer on the lake.  Camp Fisher located at 150 Smith Point in Alton can make that dream come true. You could live in the main house or the guest house sitting adjacent to the main structure while you build a luxury dream home next door  or renovate Camp Fisher.

Living on the lake is all about location. Not being tucked into a busy cove with morning sun and afternoon shade. Put together the perfect wish list it would include the following. 

Sunsets - Sandy Beach - Privacy - Boat House - Close to Skiing and Shopping - Open Water and Mountain Views - Plenty of room for the family and guests.

Camp Fisher has the above and more. You start out with a 1910 Vintage home with a 2 bay boathouse, sandy beach area and open water / mountain views. This property is an investors dream.  With 700 feet of shoreline and 6 acres of land, you could with some engineering done add up to three additional lots on the property.

Best of all you could live in the main house or the guest house sitting adjacent to the main structure while you build a luxury dream home or renovate Camp Fisher. 

 

Boat House - 6 Acres - 700 feet of shoreline - $3.9 mil - 5 cottages & main residence

NH Lakefront Inventory Update April 2016

Spring and Ice out were early this year but on April 5 we have 5 inches of snow on the ground and the temperature in Concord was a record 8 degrees. My boat was ready to go in the water last week but I am waiting for this cold Canadian blast to move on prior to launching for what I thought might be an early summer.

Spring 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. 35 homes are currently under contract with 2 record sales of $5.9 and $6.9 million set to close.

Right now inventory is still off the peak last year with 311 homes currently available throughout the state. What I find extremely interesting is that 125 of the 311 lakefront homes are priced over $1 million and 107 are priced $400,000 to $1 million.  Great time to buy if you are in the over $1 million market and a better time to sell if your home is in the under $500,000 value.

Winnipesaukee - 141 homes - with 16 island homes priced $299,000 to $565,000. 17 of the homes are priced $500,000 to $750,000, 24 are priced $750,000 to $1.25 mil.  54 homes are priced over $1.25 to $3 million with 34 priced over $3 million.
