Good deals, good burgers, and horseshoes...

Posted 05-27-2010 at 08:14 PM by Roy Sanborn


Memorial Day is upon us. Everyone thinks of it as the start of the summer season and a great reason to get together with family and friends and have a huge barbeque. It is also common to include lots of beer in the festivities which allows the attendees to loosen up for New Hampshireís unofficial sport of kings: horseshoes. Memorial Day is certainly a great day to relax, unwind, and appreciate what...

Lakes Region Waterfront Sales Market Report _ April 2010

Posted 05-14-2010 at 04:52 PM by Roy Sanborn

April was another good month for sales on Winnipesaukee when compared to last year. There were ten sales on the big lake at an average sales price of $1,057,900 compared to only five in April 2009 at an average of $946,000. Sales ranged from a low of $340,000 to $3.8 million with a median sales price of $618,000. For those homeowners that think they have to wait until summer to sell their waterfront because...

Stuck in the middle with you...

Posted 05-14-2010 at 10:26 AM by Roy Sanborn

The housing market continues to show some improvement in the Lakes Region with 71 residential home sales in the month of April, 2010 compared to just 50 in April 2009. Thatís a strong 43% increase! The average price was also up from $266,598 in April 2009 to $274,203 last month. Once again, over half the homes that sold were under the $200,000 mark. On a rolling 12 month basis ending on April 31, 2010 there were...

The Housing Market After Life Support...

Posted 05-06-2010 at 08:24 PM by Roy Sanborn

There were 1169 residential homes available as of May 1 in the communities in this Lakes Region of NH real estate report. That is up from the 1083 homes that were on the market in May 2009. The current inventory level represents an 18.4 months supply of homes on the market.
Home sales will have to increase significantly in order to bring this high inventory level down to a more reasonable level. Unfortunately...

House Hunters Lakes Region

Posted 04-29-2010 at 08:54 PM by Roy Sanborn

All right, I admit it, I am a little obsessed with real estate. Like the other full time agents that are making a go of it in this difficult market you almost have to be. You have to take this job very seriously or you wonít survive. It also helps to be a little crazy. You have to work long days, be available whenever and wherever at the drop of a hat for your clients or customers, and deal with new...

Global Warming Debunked - Lakes Region 1st Quarter Waterfront Report

Posted 04-17-2010 at 03:42 PM by Roy Sanborn


"Ice-Out" on Lake Winnipesaukee was officially declared on Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at 2:00 pm and was the earliest ice out ever recorded. While the global warming advocates will undoubtedly point to rising temperatures caused by increased concentrations of greenhouse gases, I know better. The following statistics will prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the early ice out was caused...

Home sales are getting stronger in the Lakes Region...

Posted 04-15-2010 at 01:10 PM by Roy Sanborn


It is great to finally start reporting increases in the number of residential homes sold in the Lakes Region. Scary, isnít it? It is hard to get used to and I hope I am not jinxing anything by speaking positively, but things do seem to be improving a little as we head into spring and summer selling seasons. In March 2010 there were 59 homes that changed hands. That is a 31% increase over the 44 posted...

Baseball and Real Estate

Updated 04-08-2010 at 05:20 PM by Roy Sanborn

April showers bring May flowers and more real estate listings, but the unseasonably warm and sunny days have also brought out the buyers. Letís hope they actually buy something! The number of single family homes in the towns in this Lakes Region report jumped from 993 last month to 1070 as of April 1. That number is also up compared to the 1000 homes listed as of April 1, 2009. Based on the number of homes sold...

Lakes Region Waterfront Report - Feb 2010

Posted 03-26-2010 at 07:58 PM by Roy Sanborn
Updated 03-03-2010 at 04:15 PM by Roy Sanborn

Sales of waterfront homes in the Lakes Region of NH are typically a little slower in the month of February which is no different than any other segment of our real estate market. But we did have three pretty good sales on Lake Winnipesaukee, but none on Winnisquam, Newfound, Waukewan, Squam, or Kanasatka! Click here for more details on these three sales: Waterfront sales Feb 2010

The largest sale was for $1.74 million in Gilford at 122 Varney Point. This was a very nice 3,500 square...

Our Military Heroes!

Posted 03-05-2010 at 12:00 PM by Rattlesnake Gal

There are many Forum members with loved ones in the military. Since this topic is non lake related, I am starting this blog dedicated to our nation's heroes.

It would be great if you could post here and share your stories and experiences with your Forum family.

Since becoming friends with WinnDixie and learning about her grandson, it has really personalized our troops for me.
I have a renewed mission to do a little something to support our troops. Thanks...

A Welcome January Real Estate Thaw

Posted 02-18-2010 at 12:37 PM by Roy Sanborn
Updated 02-18-2010 at 12:34 PM by Roy Sanborn

We are through an almost snowless January and half of February with but 4-6Ē or so and Iím thinking this is pretty great as I havenít had to plow my driveway much and I havenít sanded it once! However, the lack of snow in the Lakes Region of NH definitely has a negative impact on the local businesses and is certainly not good for the local economy. Although January residential home sales werenít really stellar we had an avalanche of activity compared to last year. You may recall, last February I reported that January of í09 had to be just about the bottom of the market with...

Updated 08-07-2010 at 04:25 AM by trfour (Add Link)

Family album from Life, 1953
My Sister and I are in the process of taking the album apart to scan all of the photos so as to give copies to all of our family members.

Loading the luggage trailer, and heading west, only to return to Lake Winnipesaukee, several years later.
Love,
T

PS. Part of the story of our journey west was published in a Dec. 28th 1953 issue of Life Magazine.

A Magic Carpet Ride , And The Rugg's

Posted 07-06-2009 at 12:54 AM by trfour
Updated 02-14-2010 at 04:00 AM by trfour (Additions to text)

My Mom and Dad were thinking about moving to California from the east coast back in 19and 51. This adventure would have to be thought out well in advance because at the time we were a family of 9 children. First of all, as we all know today, how can we make this gigantic move, and secondly, do we have anymore families of this size today?.... Food for thought. If you are thinking that maybe times were better back in the day, try it!!

Second of all, logistics, feeding the family while...
