Tuesday at 820am "Ice-Out" Was declared on Lake Winnipesuakee which signifies the onset of Summer travel, boating , fishing and tourism season. The official "ice out is declared when the M/S Mount Washington Cruise Ship can navigate between all it's ports of calls including Meredith, Alton Bay, Center Harbor, Weirs Beach and Wolfeboro.Each one has one of my favorite Ice Cream Shops..... In case you wanted to know...For me it seems late this year especially remembering ice out was March 24 last year. So get your boats warmed up.. but you may want to hold off on that swim as my guess is the water is hovering around 43 degrees..Another reason why New Hampshire is a great place to Visit, Play and Live.

Over the weekend i was wishing for some California Sunshine but last night just before midnight we got some genuine California shaking. Small by California standards but seeing an Earthquake in NH is usually pretty uncommon to be felt. The lakes Region of NH was rocked with a 2.5 mag. earthquake centered 15 miles north of Laconia in Ashland. It wasn't the kind of rocking the lakes region is known for and it wasn't Elvis.A gentleman at Subway told me it reminded him of bike week which now is a mere 5 months away, 2 more months of winter to go and spring is right around the corner.

The Mortgage Interest Rate Lock Advisory for October 5, 2009 Here are some of the events affecting mortgage interest rates today in Laconia, New Hampshire. What the Mortgage Backed Securities Market is Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon opened flat this morning at Friday's close at 101.69. The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon closed down 2/32 on Friday to 101.69 (as shown by the white line), but was up 20/32 for the week. MBS is currently trading up 5/32 at 101.83 (as shown by the blue line). Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes down, the yield goes up - and so do mortgage interest rates. I expect that mortgage interest rates will be essentially be the same in price today as compared to Friday. News and Events That Could Affe...

I had the opportunity to show a home in Laconia, NH  today. It was built in the early 1900's and showed significant wear. A roof was needed, windows, heat system, kitchen and bathroom upgrades were also needed. What was most surprising however was the price. It was very reasonable making this home hard to pass up for my buyer. What surprises most buyers is that there is a loan program that will allow the borrower access to funds to repair all these items. It's called the FHA 203K program. You should check it out. The buyer must have a contractor do the work and must owner occupy the home upon purchase. The borrower gets access to 1/2 the sum of the repair costs at closing and the remainder once the work is completed. These funds are added to the principle loan amount which happens to be...

There are numerous ways to heat your home because of recent technology.  Some Heating methods are more efficient than others and some are cheaper.  It's for you to decide which source of heat provides the best overall fit for your needs.  What you really want to know though is what is going to give you the best value in your home.  One innovative source of heat one may have heard of recently is Geothermal heat.  The good thing about Geothermal heat is that is draws a natural source of heat from the ground below.  Because the heat below the ground is more constant a Geothermal heat system can draw the warm or cool air from below the surface and use it to heat or cool a home.  Initial installation costs will vary depending on location, state laws and availability.  Overall, Geothermal hea...
