The Porch - The Lakes Region Real Estate Report November 2015



As I was performing the annual fall ritual of bringing in the porch furniture, I thought it might be a good time to reflect, pause, and ponder that specific American architectural institution; the porch. In America, we have front porches, side porches, back porches, entry porches, screened porches, three season porches, four season...

The much missed parlor.

The much missed parlor. The Lakes Region of NH Real Estate Market Report - Nov. 1, 2015




My first recollection of the parlor (or palour, if you like a French flair) was likely on the Beverly Hillbillies TV show.

Newfound Lake: The Secret is Out

Posted 10-01-2015 at 02:42 PM by moneill

Newfound Lake draws a captive audience year after year. Its mystique is nothing new. Frank Roche, President of Roche Realty Group, mentioned to me that when he was doing a high school project on Newfound Lake in the 1960’s, it was called one of the cleanest lakes in the country by National Geographic. Today, it is still considered to be one of the cleanest in the world.

Newfound is the 5th largest lake in New Hampshire. It encompasses 4,106 acres with 22 miles of shoreline and is...

Lake Winnipesaukee: NH's Natural Spa and Gift From Heaven

Posted 08-21-2015 at 10:36 AM by moneill
Updated 08-21-2015 at 11:11 AM by moneill

Where can you wake up to the smell of pines and the gentle sound of waves lapping at the shore? Where can you swim out into the water without having to worry about snakes, alligators, and sharks? Where can you find a haven away from the chaos of the world and yet be close to fine restaurants and top-level entertainment?

Where can you be immersed to your neck and still see your feet through clear sparkling water? Where can you drive down a road with a beautiful expanse of water only...

How to sell your home in 2015.

Posted 01-06-2015 at 12:27 PM by Roy Sanborn



How to sell your home in 2015.

I don’t think I have to venture too far out on a limb to make this New Year’s prediction: Trying to sell your home in 2015 will pretty much be the same as selling in 2014. And that isn’t necessarily easy, at least in the Lakes Region of NH. While other areas of the country and even this State are booming and properties are selling quickly with multiple offers, that is just not...
