Lake Winnipesaukee Market Snapshot from 4/27/2019 to 4/27/2021

Curious about the Latest News in the Hot Winnipesaukee Real Estate market?

Last spring there was a time period where we expected the real estate market might slow down because of the pandemic.  Do you remember those days? In fact, just the opposite happened. 

Please see attached a market snapshot showing a breakdown of Lake Winnipesaukee single family sales in the past 2 years.

The average list price increase year over year was 11%.

The average selling price increase year over year was 15% 

Please see this Winnipesaukee Market Snapshot to review the listing and selling prices in the individual towns.

These statistics are drawn from the Northern New England Real Estate Network for single family residential properties from 4/27/2019-4/27/2020 and from 4/27/2020-4/27/2021. The information is deemed reliable, but not guaranteed.

With lumber prices expected to continue to rise, the cost of real estate is not likely to go down any time soon.  CNN Business posted the following May 5 article by Matt Egan: "New Homes Cost $36,000 More Because of an Epic Shortage of Lumber."

Moultonborough and Meredith NH Winnipesaukee December 2020 Waterfront Statistics

West Side of Lake Winnipesaukee in NH

The desirability of the west side of Winnipesaukee is apparent in this photo of the waterfront by Lagos Restaurant and The Inn at Bay Point.

The desirability of this side of the lake is also apparent when looking at a snapshot of the Lake Winnipesaukee Moultonborough and Meredith December Statistics.

The low inventory on Lake Winnipesaukee is at a record level. It is hard to believe the numbers.

Lake properties have even sold, sight unseen, above listing price, with the inspections waived. It is not a market I would have believed if I was not in it myself.

*As of December 8, 2020 there were only 5 (five) Moultonborough residential properties with owned Winnipesaukee waterfront. Moultonborough has more waterfront than any other town on the lake so its stark inventory is staggering.

The average number of "Days on Market" for these Moultonborough listings as of December 8 was only fifty-eight (58). The high number of “Days on Market” was one hundred and forty-nine (149). The low number of "Days on Market" for these listings was 17 (seventeen).

Moultonborough and Meredith often share a similar pool of buyers as they are abutting towns. As of December 8, 2020 there were only 2 (two) active Meredith residential properties with owned Winnipesaukee waterfront. The high number of “Days on Market” was 97 (ninety seven). The low number of “Days on Market” was 12 (twelve). Both average and median number of “Days on Market” for these listings was 54.

It will be interesting to see in if the listing trend is up or down in January 2021!

*Statistcs drawn from the Northern New England Real Estate Network for the towns of Moultonborough and Meredith, respectively, for residential properties with owned Lake Winnipesaukee waterfront.

What Secrets Does Windermere Hold?

What Secrets Does Windermere Hold?

Windermere is a road poised at the end of Long Island.  Windermere Estates is the last named and gated neighborhood on this bridged island, known as Long Island. "Windermere Estates" leans against the widest part of Winnipesaukee. 

Dramatic lake and mountain views and serenity that comes from the surrounding woodlands and large expanse of lake.

The geography of the land at the end Windermere Estates is the shape of a mouth open and calling across the lake.  The name Windermere itself has the sound of a call or a beckon.  And for very good reason.  There is much about this part of the lake that is unique and wondrous.

The 107 Windermere Road Virtual Tour

shows the proximity to the lake of the main home, allowing for spectacular views.

 

 

Windermere Beach

Windermere Beach

 

Rather than recount what I consider magnificent about this part of the lake, I invite those interested in viewing my 107 Windermere listing, to tour this part of the lake by boat with me.  Why Not Experience Windermere for Yourself?

Ideal Winnipesaukee Offering at 107 Windermere

Privacy and the Potential for Many Waterfront Amenities.

Not only does 107 Windermere Road, Moultonborough offer spectacular beauty in one of Winnipesaukee's most classic and peaceful lakefront neighborhoods, this waterfront property has been reduced to $1,000,000 this past week. You have to tour first hand this part of the lake to appreciate this value.
 
 
The rectangular shaped parcel, 107 Windermere, is ideal. The waterfront is crystal clear and the angle of the shoreline gives you wonderful, pristine views in all directions. The roadside location of 107 Windermere is right across the street from a much larger parcel of land owned by Windermere Association.   Privacy and quality resonate in every aspect of this New Hampshire lake location.
 
 

2.2 Acre Land Parcel has 300 Feet of Waterfront and "Grandfathered" Proximity to the Lake.

This level, 2.2 acre lot has a long, sprawling 3 bedroom ranch home at water's edge.   Experience the sight of long lake and mountain views from this lot and you'll understand the lure of Long Island and its environs.  Rarely are such beautiful views right at your doorstep.   The sound of lapping water is just outside your windows.
 
 

3 Bedroom Home and 1 Bedroom Cottage are Currently on the Property.

The 3 bedrooms, living room, large den, and kitchen all have Lake Winnipesaukee's shoreline a few feet...or even less...outside the window.  Just a short ride on your jet ski can take you directly across the lake to Gilford NH amenities. Meredith and Center Harbor Bays are also just minutes away.  Why deal with road traffic when a boat ride can take you where you want to go?

Plenty of Room for an Extended Family to recreate at 107 Windermere Road.

Enjoy views past Ragged Island all the way across the lake to Rattlesnake Island.  This is an ideal  land parcel for a new construction home.  If privacy, central lake location, and end-of-Long-Island tranquility sound appealing, please call me to tour this property and this lake location.
 
107 Windermere's 300 ft. of waterfront is plenty of room for perched beach, large docking system, fire pit etc., subject to state and local permits.
 
This property might have particular appeal to those who would value a large guest cottage as part of their Winnipesaukee lake home.
 
Although the current guest cottage needs to be rebuilt, a grandfathered full guest cottage with kitchen, screen porch, living room, and kitchen of this size is rare on a single lot of record in Moultonborough.
