The 2017 story about Meredith stated that waterfront properties in Meredith had increased in value by as much as 17 percent, according to an analysis of more than 400 real estate sales. Overall, the town’s taxable property value increased by 9 percent, according to Town Manager Phil Warren.
Laconia's high taxes are having a negative effect on their real estate. You can buy a much nicer waterfront home in Laconia for less money than other towns because their taxes are so high. The same goes for Sanbornton.
