Yeah! Summer is really here. The temperature is heating up and it finally feels like it is lake weather. It’s time to get out on the boat and enjoy it. There were twelve waterfront sales sales on Winnipesaukee in June which is a 50% increase over June of last year. That’s pretty encouraging! And there were some large sales, too! In fact ten of the twelve sales were over the million mark. There were three sales in the $2-3 million range and one over $4 million. The average sales price last month was $1.778 million compared to $1.376 million last June and the total volume for the month was slightly over $21 million compared to $12.6 last June. That’s a pretty good month in my book.

The least expensive sale on the lake was at 13 Acadia Lane in Alton. This lakeside fifties vintage, 728 square foot, two bedroom cottage was a bank owned property that has had some recent updates including a metal roof and vinyl siding. The home sits on a one third acre lot with 100’ of frontage and a dock. The home was only on the market a month before some buyers jumped on it so they could enjoy the lake for the summer. It was priced at $385,000 and actually sold for more at $425,000. Sounds like there could have been a little bidding going on for this one. The current tax assessed value is $497,200 so it would seem that the buyer still got a good deal.

On the higher end pricing spectrum, across the lake in Moultonborough at 11 Mallard Way, there is a waterfront that is about ten times larger that also has a new owner. This Adirondack style home has 7,500 square feet of living space with seventeen rooms, six bedrooms, eight baths, and a whole lot of quality! This Skiffington home was built in 2004 and features post and beam construction, a gourmet custom kitchen, a fabulous great room with soaring ceilings, five fireplaces, a large family/game room on the walk out lower level, first floor master suite, a three room suite over the three car heated garage, and sweeping decks. The home sits on a 1.1 acre lot with beautiful landscaping, great sunset views, 156’ of frontage, a perched beach, and a covered dock. This home was originally listed on New Year’s Eve in 2008 for $3.999 million and again in September of 2009 for the same amount. It was listed again in November of 2010 for $3.495 million and sold for $2.9 million after a combined total of 750 days on the market. The current tax assessed value is $2,864,300. I wonder if there was confetti dropping and they were blowing horns when this one sold?

The highest sale on the lake last month was also in Moultonborough at 31 Wallace Point. This beautiful 10,000 square foot lodge style waterfront has fifteen rooms, seven bedrooms, nine baths, a grand living room with fieldstone fireplace, cathedral ceilings and exposed beams, a lower level family/pool room plus a lower level living room, and master suites on the first and second levels. This magnificent home sits on a professionally landscaped 1.89 acre lot with 235’ of frontage that has a sandy beach, two bay boat house, plus a permanent 58’ crib dock. As with many homes in this market, this one took a while to sell, too. It was originally listed in 2008 at $6.495 million, in 2009 at $5.295 million, in 2010 at $4.795 million, and this year at $4.495 million finally selling at $4.325 million after a combined total of 367 days on the market. The current assessed value is $3.639 million. Anyone see any trends here?

There have been a total of 41 Winnipesaukee sales for the first half of 2011 at an average of $1.172 million compared to 38 sales for the first half of 2010 at an average of $1.28 million. I’d say that’s holding our own in this economy!

Over on Winnisquam there were four waterfront sales with the largest being in Laconia at 126 Shore Drive This sixties vintage ranch had 3,900 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, three baths, a large living room, two fireplaces, and a family room in the walkout lower level. The one third acre lot has 100’ of frontage, a sandy beach, dock, and fabulous sunset views. This home was snapped up after one day on the market at the full asking price of $699,000 which is slightly above the current $665,000 tax assessment. A great deal in a great Winnisquam neighborhood. There have been thirteen sales on Winnisquam during the first half of 2011 at an average of $470,204 compared to just seven for the first half of 2010 at an average of $521,571. I’d say things are going pretty well on Winnisquam so far this year!

There weren’t any sales on Squam last month and only three sales through June 30th this year, but that is three more sales than the first half of last year. I’m not sure what’s going on up there but there are 24 homes on the lake for sale ranging from $399,000 to over $8 million so hopefully sales will pick up over the summer months. Maybe people have forgotten that the elusive lake trout “Walter” (or actually his descendant) is still out there. I read that “Walter” was brought over to Squam for the movie from a trout pond at the Castle in the Clouds. Ahhh, he wasn’t a Squamy after all…
