As of November 1, 2011 there were 1277 residential homes on the market in the communities in this Lakes Region real estate market report. The average asking price came in at $516,128 with a median price point of $269,900. Last November there were 100 fewer homes on the market at an average asking price of $559,403 and a median of $284,450. Seems like all the trends are heading in the wrong direction including the weather. The current home inventory represents a 20.5 month supply of property to sell. That’s a lot of work, but maybe it will help keep us warm this winter…

Being a real estate agent means that buyers rely on you for all sorts of important information about homes and our area in general. Buyers from outside of N.H. often have some real misconceptions about country living here in the Lakes Region. I find that I get asked the same questions every year. I end up answering “no” a lot but I also like to have some fun with the “flatlanders.” Here are some stock answers to the obvious questions:

No, it doesn’t usually snow this much in October.

No, they don’t plow the roads in the winter. We stay home when its snows, until spring.

No, you can’t boat from Lake Winnisquam and Lake Winnipesaukee, unless you go really fast.

No, there are no old waterfront cottages on Winnipesaukee for around $100,000… no matter what the condition.

No, that cottage is on an island. That’s why it’s so cheap…

No, there is no such thing as cheap waterfront land.

No, you can’t just put a mobile home anywhere.

No, this tax bill is not an error.

No, there is no public sewer here. We have out-houses.

No, the condo fee does not cover your fuel and electric bills.

No, they probably never will pave this road.

No, we never lose power…for more than a month or so.

No, this really is the center of town.

No, traffic is always like this in Meredith, at least on the week-ends.

No, there is no shorter way to Wolfeboro until the tunnel is finished.

No, I don’t know where you are. Do you know how many white homes there are on the lake?

No, bears will run the other way. Usually.
