Lake Winnipesaukee

More bad news?

Here's the Skinny on the Moultonborough NH Winnipesaukee Waterfront Real Estate Market!

2007 versus 2006.

We all hear more bad news in the national media every day concerning the slowing real estate market, right? It probably shouldn't come as a surprise that Moultonborough, New Hampshire saw a median selling price for its Lake Winnipesaukee waterfront homes that was lower in 2007 than in 2006.

What did surprise me though, when I ran the statistics, was just how dramatic the drop in median selling price was - 3 of the 4 quarters in 2007, saw a median selling price 1/3 to 5/11 lower than in 2006. *

I think part of what happened is that a number of verifiable facts about a slowing national real estate market spiraled out of proportion in the media. Just because the market was tanking in parts of Florida, and elsewhere in the country, people saw the possibility of prices dropping to well below the current assessed value on most Lake Winnipesaukee waterfront real estate.

In my opinion the Lake Winnipesaukee waterfront market, in Moultonborough, and throughout the Lake Winnipesaukee towns, has merely been adjusting closer to the assessed values of properties. No longer is it common for selling prices of waterfront homes to be well above the assessed value. The Lake Winnipesaukee real estate market that had been galloping away for so long had to slow down eventually.

A market has been created in which, many of the Sellers won't sell unless they get their price, so they just aren't selling. Many Buyers, growing increasingly wary from the constant bad news about real estate, and the decreasing value of the dollar in the global economy, decided in the past year to wait out the real estate market and see where prices settle. I think the stabilization of prices in the 4th quarter so far, shows that many buyers decided that prices had settled, and finally went ahead with their purchases.

I predict that the median selling price of homes will be up again next year. Some of the Sellers will bring their prices down, closer to Town of Moultonborough assessed values. I also see more buyers deciding to go ahead and make a lakefront purchase. I'd like to know your opinions on the Lakes Region real estate market. Please write an entry on my blog to prove or to disprove this theory. We'll test it in the months to come and see how closely we can predict the future market.

When is a Ten Minute Drive Worth Your Time?

It is a challenge sometimes to get real estate clients to look at Lake Winnipesaukee property at the end of Moultonborough Neck Road. Once they arrive at a lakefront property off Moultonborough Neck Road though, they are often enthralled. The estate lots, the privacy, and the long lake views across "the broads" can give you a sense of peacefulness and fill you with rapture. Being ten minutes farther from Church Landing or a golf course isn't prohibitive to people who fall in love with Moultonborough Neck Road waterfront property. In the words of people who've purchased lakefront property off Moultonborough Neck....... "When did a 10 minute drive ever kill you?"

I currently have two listings in Windermere Estates at the end of Moultonbrough Neck and Long Island. Both listings are very private and located across the street from a Windermere Estates owned forest.  As more people who are moving to the Lakes Region seem to be looking for estate size lots and privacy these Winderemere, Lake Winnipesaukee estate lots should be of increasing interest to buyers. The location in the center of Lake Winnipesaukee is highly desirable for those who enjoy traveling by boat to the most popular Lake Winnipesaukee shored towns.  If you are looking for privacy and expansive long, lake and mountain views in a quiet bay, make sure you take a look at 107 Windermere Road and 115 Windermere Road in Moultonborough, NH.  If both of these properties are purchased you would own 535 ft. of linear Lake Winnipesaukee  waterfront and more than 3.6 acres directly on lake Winnipesaukee, and a sandy beach.  Isn't all this a good reason to add 10-15 minutes to your drive to your Lake Winnipesaukee dream home? Rarely do 2 neighboring NH Lake Winnipesaukee estate lots come on the market. If you know someone in the market for a large lakefront estate property, make sure you mention 107 Windermere and 115 Windermere Estates Road.

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

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.
