The Olde Family Homestead

Posted 12-31-2016 at 10:30 AM by Roy Sanborn

I grew up in Northern NH in a classic, white clapboard farmhouse that was built in 1799. It was said to be the second oldest house in our tiny little town of mostly modest year round homes, summer cottages, and grand old hotels. Our farmhouse had four rooms on the main level and four bedrooms upstairs. When we moved in there was an unfinished ell that was used for cold storage and a three story barn which obviously had held livestock at some point in the past. The house sat on a typical...

A Handyman Christmas Gift List from Lakes Region Home

Posted 12-04-2016 at 07:26 PM by Roy Sanborn

A Handyman Christmas Gift List from Lakes Region Home

‘Tis the season again and while most people may have other things on their minds there are a few holiday home shoppers still poking around under the tree for a new house for their families. My best advice to anyone trying to sell their home during the holiday season is to make sure it exudes a colorful festive spirit and décor…but don’t overdo it too much. Remember, buyers are trying to see your home and not the decorations....

Got Wood

Posted 11-04-2016 at 11:24 AM by Roy Sanborn

Got Wood? The Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report

It’s November. And here in the Lakes Region it’s getting colder. Yup, it is downright frosty some mornings. So it is time to crank up the wood stove. This year I decided to try some kiln dried firewood instead on the seasoned wood I got last year to see how it burned in comparison. Kiln dried wood is, well, it is kiln dried like in a big oven. I had a cord delivered and dumped on the lawn next to the basement door. I paid...

Got a New Phone?

Posted 09-15-2016 at 02:32 PM by Roy Sanborn

Got a New Phone?

Every time you buy a new phone, even if it is just the newest version or upgrade of your current model, there seems to be a very large learning curve trying to get used to it. The manufacturers always seem to change something. You can’t seem to navigate it correctly, you drop calls because you pushed the wrong button, you can’t even seem to answer a call because you can’t find the right button, and God help you if you are on a call and you get another one beeping...

Gnomes Lives Matter

Posted 08-07-2016 at 06:51 PM by Roy Sanborn

Gnomes Lives Matter

Probably the number one question people ask me about when selling their home is “What should we do with respect to yard art and ornaments?” That question ranks higher than “What is my home worth?” and “should I take down the family photos?” and there’s good reason for it. The very first thing people see when coming to your home is your yard art. And it can make a positive or negative impression. But, some people think that they may have too much yard art...

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...
