Lake Winnipesaukee Market Conditions

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.

The Beautiful Wildlife Near 125 Windermere

Bald Eagle About to Fly Near 125 Windermere Road, Moultonborough, NH

An inviting neighborhood for wildlife and a protected bay with long views are some of the features home owners in the Windermere Association enjoy.  The Bald Eagle pictured here prefers the quiet and wooded areas around the Windermere Association. 

Flying from a tall tree on Winnipesaukee, the Bald Eagle is a stunning site!

While Eagles and Loons provide some of the most beautiful sites and sounds on Lake Winnipesaukee, the Loon Preservation Committee needs support to help keep Lake Winnipesaukee a home for these rare birds.

Slowing down for Loons when boating will help keep these birds a part of our NH history.

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Fact Sheets have information on how to help keep Winnipesaukee clean.

If boating regulations, including speed limits are followed, this will go a long way to help keep wildlife safe on Winnipesaukee.  

2 loons ride the large weekend waves on Winnipesaukee.

Common courtesy for other boaters and and respect for the lake is critical in the long term survival of the lake.  With extraordinary warm weather and low gas prices the lake has been more inviting to boaters this summer.  By educating ourselves on practices to keep the lake clean, we can keep the lake beautiful for future generations.

In an election year, why not ask your candidates what they intend to do to help keep NH's lakes clean?  

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services and the New Hampshire Lakes Management and Protection Program  need very strong support from the legislature to do their job well and to keep our New Hampshire lakes and ponds healthy.  


Water conservation is a related issue that is especially important in drought years, such as 2016. Water Conservation Practice Fact Sheets can be found on the NH DES website regarding water conservation. The Fact Sheets WD-DWGB-26-18 - WD-DWGB-26-23 are especially helpful for homeowners.  Arsenic and bacteria levels can change in years that parts of drinking wells that are usually submerged become dry.  Ask your water or well company for information on water testing.
