lakes region of nh: Is Your Realtor® as Dumb As A Doorknob? - 04/13/14 01:30 AM
Is Your Realtor® as Dumb As A Doorknob? If someone refers to their REALTOR® as being as dumb as a doorknob, there are several possible meanings. Today, well, he could be just not all that smart. But, in olden days, it could have meant that your REALTOR® was just a quiet sort of guy.
The saying “dumb as a doorknob” appears to be derived from the saying as “dead as a doornail” which was used by literary English greats such as Shakespeare and Charles Dickens (in his well known “Christmas Carol.”) Doornails were driven in to mid-evil wooden doors and bent … (0 comments)

A Christmas House As Walter Mathau often said in Grumpy Old Men, “Holy Moley” Christmas is almost here. Last month there were 89 residential home sales in the twelve towns in this Lakes Region market report. That means a good number of families will be celebrating Christmas in a new home and that’s pretty cool. The average sales price last month was $227,738 and the median price point was $174,750. Last November there were 86 sales at an average of $332,653. Next month we’ll get to see the year end numbers which should be pretty interesting!

The Gourmet Kitchen There were 96 residential home sales in October in the twelve towns covered by this Lakes Region real estate report. The average sales price came in at $350,760 and the median price point was $209,250. Last October we posted 97 sales at a lower average of $287,919. We just had three straight months of hundred plus sales, so our yearly sales numbers should look pretty good if we finish out the year strong. This sure feels better than going in the other direction.
With Thanksgiving coming right up, I thought I would focus a little bit on … (1 comments)

1246 Province Road, Gilmanton, NH MLS# 4258592 Offered at $1,750,000 For Listing Details Click Here Home owners and real estate agents alike often try to promote their properties as special, unique, and one of a kind when trying to sell them. It’s part of the real estate game. Many homes don’t really live up to their billing even though they could be very, very nice. Ever so rarely you get one that does, although this is the first time that I have seen a property that far exceeds any of the superlatives I could possibly use. Don’t believe me? If … (1 comments)

lakes region of nh: Squam River Landing - A Sustainable Squam Lake Community - 06/20/13 10:23 AM
Anyone who lives in or visits the Lakes Region should be required to watch the 1981 film “On Golden Pond” with Katherine Hepburn and Henry Fonda. There should be theaters at Exit 23 and 24 so anyone headed over to Squam could pull in, watch the show, and decompress before they can venture near the lake. In short, “on Golden Pond” is a story about an aging couple who have a summer cottage on Squam. Their daughter, with whom Dad has trouble communicating, is on her way to Europe for a two week vacation so she leaves her son with them … (0 comments)

lakes region of nh: Lakes Region of NH Waterfront Sales Report - May 2013 - 06/15/13 11:05 PM
Lakes Region of NH Waterfront Sales Report - May 2013 May showed a little uptick in waterfront sales on Winnipesaukee with 14 transactions at an average sales price of$907,196 and a median price point of $826,000. Four sales came in over the million dollar mark. Last May we had twelve transactions on the big lake at an average sales price of $638,231.

lakes region of nh: Ruthlessly Price Your Home - 01/12/13 01:49 AM
 
The number of residential homes for sale in the Lakes Region of NH definitely took a big drop on New Year’s Day as hundreds of properties listed in the MLS expired without finding a buyer. Memorial services will be held in multiple locations around the Lakes Region. Please check the obituaries as most of the families of the deceased would be appreciative of donations toward their mortgage payments in lieu of flowers. While this is a extremely sad time for the bereaved, those still clinging to life support know that fewer homes on the market means a healthier market overall. … (1 comments)
