nh realtor: Real Estate Internet Dating - 03/09/13 07:32 AM
As of March 1, 2013 there were 900 residential homes for sale in the Lakes Region of NH communities listed in this report. The average asking price stood at $503,883 and the median price point was $249,900. The current inventory level equals a twelve month supply of homes on the market which is a whole lot better than the 994 listings and 15 month supply as of March 1, 2012. An associates told me the other day that a buyer she was working with thought that looking for a property online was a bit like Internet dating. The buyer had (0 comments)
nh realtor: Lakes Region of NH Home Deals? - 11/15/12 08:47 AM
There were 1,120 residential homes on the market as of November 1,2012 in the twelve communities covered in this Lakes Region real estate report. The average asking price stood at $491,382 with a median price point of $252,950. The residential inventory available is down from 1,230 last month and 1,277 last November. The current inventory represents a 14.6 month supply of homes on the market which is far better than we have seen over the summer months. A search of the MLS system revealed some newly listed properties that appeared be pretty good deals. Here’s a few of the nicer ones (0 comments)
nh realtor: Cowboys, Ghosts, Witches, and Superheroes - Real Estate Costumes? - 10/27/12 02:02 PM
Halloween is just around the corner. Kids will be out Trick or Treating in their scary costumes trying to see who can collect the biggest stash of candy and goodies. I got thinking about some of the classic costumes kids wear and realized that most of these costumes “fit” pretty well on real estate agents. While they may not be as visible as the ones the kids wear, they are pretty apparent once you describe them. Sometimes you see it in the way they act, their mannerisms, and how they conduct business. Here are just a few of the costumes you (1 comments)
nh realtor: Your Lakes Region Real Estate Horoscope - 08/10/12 07:38 AM
The residential home inventory level in our Lakes Region report bumped up an inch or two from 1328 homes available on July 1 to 1351 available as of August 1 at an average asking price of $491,503. The median price point is at $259,900. The current inventory level represents a 20 month supply of homes on the market. We are down, however, from the 1412 homes available on August 1, 2011. I continually strive to bring you the latest, up to date real estate market data, info on good deals, real estate insights, and sometimes utterly useless dribble. I thought I (0 comments)
nh realtor: The Speed of "Ahhh" - 04/20/12 05:50 AM
There were 64 residential home sales in March in the twelve towns listed in this Lakes Region of NH real estate report. That's a 12% increase over last March. The average sales price came in at $314,161 last month compared to just under $300,000 last year. There were four sales over the million dollar mark bolstering the average sales price. Exactly 50% of the sales were under $200,000. For the first quarter of 2012, there were 171 residential single family home transactions. Sales are up 18% for the quarter compared to the first quarter of 2011 and 24% over 2010! (0 comments)

nh realtor: Good Deals = Quick Sales - 09/22/11 10:27 AM
Residential homes sales in the Lakes Region communities covered by this market report jumped a healthy 23% in August compared to the same month last year. There were 83 sales last month at an average of $330,718 compared to 67 last August at an average of $411,780. A 23% increase in sales is welcome news but one month doesn’t make a trend. On a rolling twelve month basis we are still off last year’s pace…just a bit. For the twelve month period ending 8/31/10 there were 772 sales at an average of $312,389. For the twelve month period ending 8/31/11 there (1 comments)
nh realtor: Facebook, or Maybe Housebook... - 03/17/11 04:11 PM
Sales of residential homes in the Lakes Region of NH were surprisingly strong in February with fifty transactions compared to just thirty four last February. Given the fact that we were up to our eyeballs in snow in January, that is pretty remarkable to me. The average sales price came in at just $216,920 compared to $279,480 last February. That drop is due to the fact that we had no sales over $1 million last month but had two last February. As usual, just about half the sales recorded were under $200,000. For the first two months of the year total (0 comments)
nh realtor: A New Path To Home Ownership Using Fannie’s HomePath Program - 03/05/11 05:39 PM
There were 957 homes for sale at an average asking price of $552,033 in the towns listed in this Lakes Region real estate market report as of March 1, 2010. That is slightly lower than the 993 homes available last March which had an average price of $583,496. The current level of inventory represents a 12 month supply of homes on the market. It’s no secret that mortgage giant Fannie Mae has got problems. Right now, who doesn’t? Not only does she have a name you can make fun of, she has foreclosed on so many properties that she, like (0 comments)
This was a really great week, if you like snow. Driving into Laconia on the day of the most recent of one too many snowstorms was like sledding into an Eskimo Village above the arctic circle. The main differences were that I didn’t see any polar bears lurking nearby, our igloos have flat or peaked roofs rather than round, and plow trucks were the only thing moving instead of sled dog teams. Did you know that Eskimos can heat their igloos with a whale oil lamp and their own body heat and be quite comfortable? Keep that thought for (1 comments)
April showers bring May flowers and more real estate listings, but the unseasonably warm and sunny days have also brought out the buyers. Let’s hope they actually buy something! The number of single family homes in the towns in this Lakes Region report jumped from 993 last month to 1070 as of April 1. That number is also up compared to the 1000 homes listed as of April 1, 2009. Based on the number of homes sold in the last 12 months, this total is equivalent to 17 months worth of inventory. We are fortunate to have a good mix (1 comments)

All Hallows' Eve in the Lakes Region Home Market Click on the pictures for some true terror... This time of year you tend to see a lot of ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and witches on the streets of the Lakes Region of NH. There are also a lot of haunted houses and scary mansions with dark and dusty dungeons full of cobwebs, musty smells, and sinister shadows. It kind of reminds me of Halloween, but I am talking about real estate and the buyers, sellers, and agents involved in this frightening business. We find buyers coming to the Halloween home (0 comments)
