Check out all the Lakefront Listing in New Hampshire on our Website www.nhlakesrealty.com 

Buying A Lakefront Home can lead to some uncertainty!

You have a magical checklist.  Sunsets, Sandy Beach, Three Bedrooms, Two bathrooms, Level Lot, Large Lake, Newer Construction, Private Lot, Move in Condition and the list goes on. Plus you want the home located close to skiing and attractions. 

Unless you know exactly the lake you want to be on get in the car and drive around.  Seeing five homes in the Wakefield or Washington NH area and then deciding you don't want a remote location is a waste of time.  ( Buy the lake and setting not the home )

Get in your car and spend a day driving around looking at lakes and amenities in the area. 

Send your list of prospective homes to your agent and ask their opinion. Photography can make a shack look like your dream home. That beautiful looking home may have a busy street between the home and waterfront. Ask for Help.

Ask your agent to send a list of homes they would recommend from your checklist. Your agent will send you homes that most closely match the criteria you are looking for. 

Talk with your banker and establish a price range you are comfortable with and get a pre-qualification letter so when you find that dream home you can move quickly. 

Remember you can always change the home and your dream lake home could be on a lake that you have never heard of.

Other influencing important factors to set prior to beginning your search, commute time, property taxes vary town to town, flood zone, size of the lake, water quality and fishing.

Selling your Lakefront Home can lead to anxiety!

Time leads to changes in our life that often leads to what seem like drastic adjustments in your lifestyle. One transition is selling your lake home.  You will retain the wonderful memories you enjoyed with family and friends and you will meet some resistance from family members.     

So selling your lakefront home can be an emotional process. First step is to change your emotional view of the property to a business decision.

Next is to hire an agent that specializes in waterfront home sales. You don't visit a psychologist with a toothache, interview agents who know lakes and shoreline rules. Select one you are comfortable with.   

Your home will be view online and first impressions are the only impressions, remember buyers are looking for a perfect home.

Price it right!  Stage to show well!  Photography Sells!  Depersonalize the Home! Less clutter is better!  Always be ready to show!
