December 2023 Lake Winnipesaukee Report
Further decline of waterfront inventory
Seven new listings have recently graced the market, yet the demand has proven strong, leading to the successful sale of nine properties from the existing inventory. This surge in sales has diminished the available property pool. Impressively, the trend of exceeding asking prices persists, with an average time on the market of just 20 days recorded last month.
As of today (12/04), a select 25 listings stand as active contenders on the market, commanding attention with an average asking price slightly surpassing $4.3 million. Notably, only two island residences remain up for grabs and two of the 25 listings boast price tags exceeding $10 million. Additionally, four listings showcase the allure of forthcoming or recently completed constructions.
Within this dynamic market, it's noteworthy that several of these 25 properties have experienced fluctuations, making appearances both on and off the market over the past few years. These shifts involve consistent players—whether they are recent sellers aiming for swift returns on their investments or veteran sellers still holding out for their asking price from 2014 and earlier!
