MARKET REPORT

THE YEAR IN REVIEW


Knowledge is power… Our focus in 2014 is to insure that our clients (whether selling or purchasing real estate) have comprehensive information in order to make informed decisions. Ultimately your success is our success. To that end we have produced our first Annual Market Report. In it you will find year over year market trends from 2012 to 2013 for the four main regions we serve; the Lake Sunapee Region, the Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont, the Lakes Region and the Merrimack Valley. Overall 2013 was a mixed year. National news was filled with stories about rising real estate prices and trends. Here in New Hampshire, unit sales of single family homes statewide were indeed up year over year as was the average selling price (on average 4.2% over 2012). However real estate markets are local in nature and while all four markets we serve did show year over year unit increases in single family home sales, three regions experienced lower average selling prices in 2013; (-27.5%) in the Upper Valley, (-3.2%) in the Lakes Region and (-9.7%) in the Lake Sunapee Region. Only The Merrimack Valley posted a year over year increase in Average Selling Price of 7.9% which outperformed the state average. And within each region the results were mixed on a town by town basis. While some towns experienced double digit decreases in average selling prices; others saw double digit increases. These facts will play a significant role on how a homeowner should price their home and what a buyer should decide to pay for a new home in 2014.

So where is 2014 heading? We believe the housing market in New Hampshire will continue to expand with moderate increases likely to occur in the luxury second home market. This category saw a significant decline in 2013 versus 2012. With sales of single family homes approaching pre-recession levels in many areas, the overall pace of growth may become more moderate in 2014. And it remains to be seen what effect the drawdown of the Fed’s stimulus program will have on the market. However, the economy grew a total of 3.2% in the 4th quarter of 2013 and the jobs outlook combined with pent-up demand, continued home affordability and most importantly, rising consumer confidence are all expected to play a meaningful role in this year’s real estate market. We hope you find our first Annual Year-End Market Report helpful as you evaluate your real estate options in 2014. If you are considering purchasing or selling real estate this year and are looking for even more detailed information, do not hesitate to contact us and our team of 28 dedicated professionals who will provide additional market details broken down by price point. At Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty, we are committed to providing the highest level of service and expertise to buyers and sellers alike in all price categories. It is not the price point that matters to us; it is the quality of the properties we represent. It will be our privilege to serve you in 2014… All the best, The Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty Team Cover Photo: Tucker Hill | Norwich, VT 2

MARKET REPORT 2013


The Lake Sunapee Region l SINGLE FAMILY HOMES The Lake Sunapee Region continues to be a highly desirable place to live, either full time or as a place to own that perfect lake front getaway. The area experienced an overall increase in the sale of single family homes of 7.5% in 2013 with Grantham leading the way with a 46.6% increase year over year. Other towns like Goshen and Warner saw double digit decreases in Unit Sales. The Average Selling Price was down an average of (-9%) in 8 of the 11 towns we identify as the Lake Sunapee Region. Only Newbury saw a substantial increase in the Average Selling Price. The Average Days on Market fell (-9%) over the same time period which makes sense from our point of view; buyers recognized that prices were affordable and pent up demand resulted in an overall increase in Unit Sales which contributed to shorter Days on Market. This demand however would not have been as strong had sellers not recognized that in order to be successful they had to adjust their pricing to reflect Market Value. The same will be true in 2014. Sellers must consider the following: the longer a property stays on the market in excess of the average number of days that similar properties sell in (not similarly priced properties), the more likely it will become stale and ultimately ignored by Buyer Brokers. An encouraging trend is that Pending Sales (those likely to close) at the end of 2013 were up 5% over 2012. This indicates continued market strength and buyer interest right through the end of the year.

The Lake Sunapee Region l CONDOMINIUMS 4 of the 11 Lake Sunapee Region towns offer condominium communities. Within those 4 towns, the data will show that the condo market is is still experiencing a downward adjustment. Overall New Listings on the market, Unit Sales, and Pending Sales, and Average Selling Price are all down year over year. And Days on Market is up; in the case of Newbury by 80.5%. New London is one of the strongest markets for condo communities and indeed Unit Sales were up 7.1% in 2013 but at the expense of the Average Selling price which was down (-10.8%). As is true in the single family home segment, the Average Days on Market was down in New London as a result; by (-32.1%).

MARKET REPORT 2013

The Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont l SINGLE FAMILY HOMES The Upper Valley is a prime destination for full time residents seeking employment opportunities in the region and for second home owners that include Dartmouth College alumni as well as four season living enthusiasts. The area enjoys one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. Overall market activity in the region is mixed. Unit Sales were up, however Pending Sales were down as was the Average Selling Price; by (-27.5%). More than half the towns in the region experienced double digit losses in this category. Hanover experienced a particularly soft year across all categories and Norwich a very good one with an increase in Average Selling Price of 11.6% and Unit Sales of 7.1% The Average Days on Market fell substantially; by (-67%) year over year. The general problem we see is a lack of quality inventory. When quality listings appear on the market, buyers take advantage which contributed to shorter Days on Market. Pending Sales were trending down (-7.2%) at the end of 2013. We believe this has more to do with the dearth of quality listings rather than market dynamics.

MARKET REPORT 2013


The Lakes Region l SINGLE FAMILY HOMES Overall market activity in the Lakes Region was very good year over year. 9 of the 13 towns saw significant increases in Unit Sales, most in double digits. Particularly impressive was the town of Belmont that experienced a 56.7% increase in Unit Sales year over year. The region experienced an overall increase in the sale of Single Family Homes of 11.9%. However Gilmanton saw double digit decreases in Unit Sales. The Average Selling Price as in our other markets, was down an average of (-3.2%) overall. Less than half however (6 of the 13 towns we identify as the Lakes Region) had negative year over year results. Center Harbor saw a substantial increase in the Average Selling Price of 51.1%. The Average Days on Market fell (-2.8%) over the same time period; buyers recognized that prices were affordable and pent up demand resulted in an overall increase in Unit Sales which contributed to shorter Days on Market. As in the Lake Sunapee Region, it is encouraging to see that Pending Sales at the end of 2013 were up 8% over 2012. There were over 1000 homes under contract at the end of the year.

The Merrimack Valley l SINGLE FAMILY HOMES The Merrimack Valley was one of the strongest performing regions in the state in 2013. Only 2 of the 14 towns we identify as the Merrimack Valley realized lower Average Selling Prices in 2013 compared with 2012. The Average Selling Price, region wide was up 7.9% overall; well above the state average. Candia and Sandown performed particularly well in this category. Only Derry saw a slight dip in year over year Unit Sales; all other towns saw significant increases in Unit Sales, most in double digits. Particularly impressive were the towns of Atkinson and Raymond that experienced more than a 28% increase in Unit Sales year over year. As in other regions, the Average Days on Market fell; (-12%) over 2012. The same dynamics are in play; a hotter market drove quicker purchasing decisions. Pending Sales at the end of 2013 were up slightly; a half percent over 2012. There were over 1600 homes at the end of the year under contract.
