NH Waterfront Homes for Sale

fishingBuying a waterfront home.

Have you been longing for the day that you can buy that perfect waterfront home? Can you imagine sitting in your yard sipping on your favorite beverage and listening to the water lapping the rocks allowing you to close your eyes and fall into a slumber? Do you ever wonder if that perfect waterfront home is available for me in southern New Hampshire? Do you wonder if you can even afford to live on the water?

Well, you have come to the right place. Southern New Hampshire has plenty of lakes and ponds to satisfy most any budget.

If you want to swim, boat and fish then your options are plenty. But, the key to finding the perfect spot is knowing where to find that perfect sunrise or sunset. Do you own a smartphone or a compass? When searching for that specific requirement one or both will come in handy. My iPhone has a compass so we will be able to let you know where the sun sets and sun rises to help you decide what time of day is best for you. I am an early riser so I love to view the sunrise and have the warmth of the sun on my face as I sip on my morning coffee or tea. Is there a certain time of day you’d like to know where the sun will reflect on your front porch? (front on waterfront property means waterside) Or do you want the shade to keep you cool? We have an app that will tell us where the sun will shine on your new home. Just ask us to use it and we will be more than happy to point it out for you.

Do you wonder where the fish are biting? We will try our best to find out where the best fishing is on a certain lake. Just ask a neighbor with a boat. They’ll probably know. Looking for that special cove where you have a lot of privacy? Just give us a call or shoot us a text or an email.

Did you know that some lakes you can’t swim in? Yes, we have two right here in southern New Hampshire. Some lakes are great for kayaking and canoeing but you just can’t swim in them. Contact us if you’d like to know which ones and why you can’t swim in them.

We often get asked when is the best time to buy a waterfront property? The best time is when you are ready and can afford it. Sometimes in the dead of winter you may be able to get a great deal because someone needs to sell real bad. If you wait until spring time you may lose out because there are a lot of other buyers out there as well.

It’s a tough question to answer and only you can determine the right answer so I would say get out there now and start looking. Give us call and we’ll be more than happy to help you find that perfect waterfront home.

Check out our updated listings for waterfront homes below.
