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.

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.
