Wolfeboro, New Hampshire Year-end Market Report 2011

Winter In Wolfeboro

Wolfeboro’s Residential listing data reflects an increase in market inventory by 5.9% when compared to last year’s year-end stats.  There are currently one hundred-forty residential homes available for purchase in Wolfeboro, twenty-nine offer waterfront and/or water access; sixteen condominium units; seventy-six vacant land parcels; seventeen manufactured homes and twelve commercial properties.  Year-end sales volume is up slightly reporting a 5% increase over last year, however the average sales price has decreased by 22.5%.

Pending and contingent sales reflect an increase over last year’s activity by 10% and 8.4%, however sales are not keeping in line with the increase.  There are apparently a number of pending and contingent sales that didn’t make the count of successful sales; one can only surmise that not all of the under contract transactions are making it through the inspection and/or financing contingencies. Interest rates remain at a lifetime low, the overall market remains soft – buyers with the means to purchase are in the best position during this continued time of market uncertainty.
