What's Hot in Today's Real Estate Market?

Posted 04-03-2016 at 04:57 PM by Roy Sanborn



What's Hot?



Did you ever wonder why some homes sell quickly and others linger on the market a long time? Well, obviously a lot has to do with whether it is priced right or not or perhaps it's the location. But, certain home features are very desirable and help sell a home while there are other things that might deter a sale. So here is a list of some things that are hot when it comes to desirable...

I was surfing around the real estate world on the internet and I happened across an article about “native real estate apps.” I don’t know why, but my first thought was about Tonto getting down of his pinto (whose name was Scout, naturally)...

The Inspection - Lakes Region of NH Real Estate Market Report

Posted 03-04-2016 at 11:10 AM by Roy Sanborn

The Inspection - Lakes Region of NH Real Estate Market Report

Having a property inspection is one of the biggest hurdles and a very important step in the home buying process. Buyers often ask whether they really need an inspection and my answer is always yes, yes, and yes regardless of whether the home is new or 200 years old. Every farmer checks out the horse’s teeth before he buys him.

Presidents' Day

There were just 61 residential home sales in January 2016 in the twelve communities covered by this Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report. That’s kind of a slow start for the New Year but it is still a lot better than the 50 posted last January. The average sales price came in at $338,936 and the median price point was $231,500.

Smile of the Great Spirit

Updated 02-03-2016 at 11:05 AM by moneill (typo)

On the northern shore of the big lake, dwelt the chieftain of the woodlands, Ahanton. He was renowned for his courage, but even more so for the beauty of his daughter, Ellacoya. Many warriors pursued her. Yet all were rejected until one day, Kona, a young chief from a rival tribe to the south, appeared in the village. In response to the legend of Ellacoya’s beauty, he had traveled across the lake in his canoe to win her hand.

Leading an expedition to expel invaders, Chief Ahanton...

Lakes Region, NH vs. Cape Cod, MA

Posted 01-13-2016 at 09:06 AM by moneill

The decision to buy in the Lakes Region or on the Cape is a question that repeatedly surfaces when working with buyers looking for a second home in this area. The answer to the question is easy for someone who has lived on the lakes all his or her life. But let us at least try to look at the question objectively.

The Lakes Region versus Cape Cod debate is not an age-old question in the same category as what the universe if made of or the biological basis of consciousness, but it is...

Wolfeboro, NH Through Different Eyes

Posted 12-31-2015 at 11:59 AM by moneill

Many famous people have owned beautiful homes and estates in Wolfeboro over the years. One of the most interesting was Chiang Kai-shek. He was a Chinese political leader and a major figure in Chinese history from 1927 to 1948. His wife, Soong Mei-ling,*often called Madame Chiang Kai-shek, was also prominent in the world scene. Time Magazine named the couple “Man and Woman of the Year” in 1938. In his “New Hampshire Commentary” blog, Dean Dexter says the couple “were what Tracy and Hepburn were to...

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...
