While there are 37 Lake Winnipesaukee homes offered at $3,000,000 or more currently on the market, 10 of them are in Gilford, NH. 9 of these Lake Winnipesaukee homes for sale for $3,000,000 or more are in Wolfeboro. Only 12 of them are in Meredith and Moultonborough where most of the Winnipesaukee home sales in this price range are happening.
Of these remaining waterfront homes, Hornet's Nest Point is the only estate on the Northern Shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, that features newer construction, 8 or more acres directly on the lake, and a Lake Winnipesaukee water view. (The Lake Winnipesaukee view is breathtaking). The fact that this luxury estate home has just had a $1,000,000 price reduction puts it in or below the price range of many much older homes and many homes without boathouses and sand beaches around Lake Winnipesaukee. This large distinctive parcel that includes 2 waterfront lots has views to the South, North, and East for the benefits of all day sun.
Luxury Lake Winnipesaukee Market
While the Lake Winnipesaukee high end market may appear to have many homes to chose from, the truth is that for individual buyers, it is often very, very difficult to find the home that suits their many needs, wants, and prerequisites as far as house style, location, design, exposure, and landscape. Despite the magnificence of Lake Winnipesaukee and the wonderful lifestyle that is offered to those living in the Lakes Region, high end Buyers will not buy a home until they find their irresistible home at the right price.
As August is usually the beginning of the prime season for selling high end waterfront homes, the upcoming months will be important for both the Buyers and Sellers of high end Winnipesaukee waterfront homes, as well as for the real estate agents of these lakefront properties. With 4 Lake Winnipesaukee land sales of $600,000 or more so far this year, and one of them at a nearly $3,000,000 selling price, we see that there certainly are people who are deciding to build rather than buy the existing homes offered. (There are, of course, "teardowns" that have been bought with the intention to build in the next few years as well).
