January 2023 Lake Winnipesaukee Report
Low inventory remains
Four residential, single-family privately owned Winnipesaukee properties sold last month with just 3 new ones hitting the market, leaving us down another one unit in the market inventory. Since then one of the 3 newly listed has been taken off the market due to the seller changing their mind about selling.
