Lake Homes on the Market March 2017: NH Lakefront Property Inventory Update: March 22, 2017 

NH Lakefront Property Inventory Update: March 22, 2017 

April 1 is the start of the salmon fishing season on Winnipesaukee and signals that the boating season is at the door.  The lakes area is lacking inventory so quality homes are selling quickly. Don’t wait if you see a home you would be interested in. 

My wife Paula and I  have been helping you find and sell dream lakefront properties in the greater Lakes Region of NH since 1999.  The waterfront market remains constant with retirement and executive buyers looking to find a cottage or home for their family. Buyers are looking for turnkey homes in move in condition, no painting,  no flooring ready to relax in properties.  Homes that meet this criterion even if priced on the high end of the market are selling. Click below for inventory on selected lakes!

In the lakes area we cover  ( Ossipee- Winnipesaukee- Squam - Newfound – Sunapee – Winnisquam – Wentworth – Merrymeeting – Silver – Pleasant )  along with the other 250 smaller affordable lakes and ponds in the area.

The state currently has 388  lakefront homes available. There are 224 homes available in the greater lakes region right now including island homes.  51 homes are under agreement that should close shortly priced $200,000 to $9 million. 

Popular Lakes by size  ( Ossipee 3000- Winnipesaukee 42,000- Squam 6700 - Newfound 4100– Sunapee 4000 – Winnisquam 4000 – Wentworth 3000  ) homes start in the $550,000 range to well over $10 million for a luxury estate.    ( Merrymeeting – Bow – Silver - Waukewan all 1000 acres – Great East Lake 1700 acres ) These lakes pricing starts are in the $500,000 range for a year round home.

 Ossipee: 8 active properties are listed, $209,000 for a seasonal cottage to $890,000 on the main lake. I think Long Sands Road has the finest views in the lakes region.  Sunsets to spectacular mountain views of  Shaw, Whittier, Chocorua, and the magnificent Mount Washington Ossipee, in my opinion, is the best value in the lakes region.  Don’t forget to inquire about Silver Lake in Madison also, this 900-acre gem of a lake has some great homes available. ​
