The Disappearing Clothesline

Posted 05-08-2016 at 06:13 PM by Roy Sanborn

The Disappearing Clothesline

I was skimming through this month’s issue of the Northern New England Journey magazine put out by AAA and on the last page there was a short article about clotheslines called “For the Love of Laundry.” Basically, the writer was expounding on how she was happy to get back to hanging her laundry out on the line after a long winter and how doing so was a relaxing and enjoyable chore for her. It reminds her of her childhood days and trips to a cottage...

What's Not Hot!

Posted 04-11-2016 at 11:02 AM by Roy Sanborn





What's Not Hot… The Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report



Last week we explored what is hot in the real estate world as far as desirable home features. Now, for WNHW. That’s not a radio station, that’s “What’s not hot, Willie!” or things you might want to change if you can before you try to sell your home. Obviously, some things can’t be fixed, like the fact that you live next...

What's Hot in Today's Real Estate Market?

Posted 04-03-2016 at 04:57 PM by Roy Sanborn



What's Hot?



Did you ever wonder why some homes sell quickly and others linger on the market a long time? Well, obviously a lot has to do with whether it is priced right or not or perhaps it's the location. But, certain home features are very desirable and help sell a home while there are other things that might deter a sale. So here is a list of some things that are hot when it comes to desirable...

The Inspection - Lakes Region of NH Real Estate Market Report

Posted 03-04-2016 at 11:10 AM by Roy Sanborn

The Inspection - Lakes Region of NH Real Estate Market Report

Having a property inspection is one of the biggest hurdles and a very important step in the home buying process. Buyers often ask whether they really need an inspection and my answer is always yes, yes, and yes regardless of whether the home is new or 200 years old. Every farmer checks out the horse’s teeth before he buys him.

Presidents' Day

There were just 61 residential home sales in January 2016 in the twelve communities covered by this Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report. That’s kind of a slow start for the New Year but it is still a lot better than the 50 posted last January. The average sales price came in at $338,936 and the median price point was $231,500.

Smile of the Great Spirit

Posted 02-03-2016 at 11:02 AM by moneill
Updated 02-03-2016 at 11:05 AM by moneill (typo)

On the northern shore of the big lake, dwelt the chieftain of the woodlands, Ahanton. He was renowned for his courage, but even more so for the beauty of his daughter, Ellacoya. Many warriors pursued her. Yet all were rejected until one day, Kona, a young chief from a rival tribe to the south, appeared in the village. In response to the legend of Ellacoya’s beauty, he had traveled across the lake in his canoe to win her hand.

Leading an expedition to expel invaders, Chief Ahanton...

Lakes Region, NH vs. Cape Cod, MA

Posted 01-13-2016 at 09:06 AM by moneill

The decision to buy in the Lakes Region or on the Cape is a question that repeatedly surfaces when working with buyers looking for a second home in this area. The answer to the question is easy for someone who has lived on the lakes all his or her life. But let us at least try to look at the question objectively.

The Lakes Region versus Cape Cod debate is not an age-old question in the same category as what the universe if made of or the biological basis of consciousness, but it is...

Wolfeboro, NH Through Different Eyes

Posted 12-31-2015 at 11:59 AM by moneill

Many famous people have owned beautiful homes and estates in Wolfeboro over the years. One of the most interesting was Chiang Kai-shek. He was a Chinese political leader and a major figure in Chinese history from 1927 to 1948. His wife, Soong Mei-ling,*often called Madame Chiang Kai-shek, was also prominent in the world scene. Time Magazine named the couple “Man and Woman of the Year” in 1938. In his “New Hampshire Commentary” blog, Dean Dexter says the couple “were what Tracy and Hepburn were to...
