1st Quarter Lakes Region Waterfront Report

Posted 04-13-2012 at 08:27 AM by Roy Sanborn



Hey! There were fourteen waterfront sales on Winnipesaukee in March! That’s a pretty good month in my book. The average sales price came in at $797,086 and there were three sales over the million dollar mark. Last March there were just six sales at an average price of $986,667. For the first quarter of 2011 there have been twenty six sales on the lake at an average of $807,469 compared to seventeen sales at an average...

Trying to Determine the Value of a Winnipesaukee or Squam Property? Have Patience..

Posted 07-22-2012 at 08:18 AM by nicolewatkins (Nicole Watkin's Lake Winnipesaukee & Squam Lake High End Sales - 2010 Mid Year Report)

Buyers Look to Assessments to Guide Them on Property Values

As people search for Winnipsaukee or Squam Lake real estate, they often ask about the town assessements for the Winnipesaukee or Squam listings that pique their interest. In purchasing a commodity that has as many intangible and subjective qualities as Winnipesaukee or Squam Lake waterfront real estate, potential buyers look for whatever they can find to help guide them to what they perceive as a reasonable offering price...

The Winnipesaukee Tunnel Project

Posted 08-28-2012 at 02:10 PM by Roy Sanborn



Residential home sales in our Lakes Region communities were not what I had hoped for in July. I was planning on a summer of love… real estate love, that is. Lots of sales, happy sellers, happy buyers. I was predicting, anticipating, and forecasting that we would have a month where sales would top 100 for the month. Nope, not in July. It is kind of like the national monthly job numbers; always...

Cowboys, Ghosts, Witches, and Superheroes - Real Estate Costumes?

Posted 10-27-2012 at 01:18 PM by Roy Sanborn

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....
