Hello Captain obvious here..!
Seriously - this years sales illustrate the point so well, I wanted to detail the four towns closest to the Loon Mountain ski resort. The highest selling prices on homes in these towns didn't set any new records...but they prove the theory. A great view sells...and in my opinion, the buyers that find these homes are happy to buy even with a few flaws..because hey - they got that view.
...Case in point Closed Friday October 10th 2014.
Sellingham Road Thornton New Hampshire...Closed at $295,000 the highest priced home to sell this year in the town of Thronton New Hampshire. (Alpine Lakes Real Estate co inc Listing).
Upper Grandview Drive Woodstock New Hampshire...Closed August 2014...for $460,000 - the highest selling price of the year in the town of Woodstock. (Alpine Lakes Real Estate co inc. Listing)
South Station Road Woodstock New Hampshire...May 2014 closed sale $370,000 second highest price sale in Woodstock NH. (Alpine Lakes Real Estate co inc Listing)
South Mountain Road - Lincoln New Hampshire- Spring 2014 closing for $760,000 (Alpine Lakes Real Estate Co inc listing) there where two other homes sold at higher prices in Lincoln...that had nice views as well...but this one was slope side on the ski area.
_Campton New Hampshire July 2014 closed sale Price $384,000 Highest selling price this year in Campton NH
Listed by Alpine Lakes Real Estate co inc...Campton Office.
So when a seller asks me what can I do to improve my chances of a quick sale, at top dollar?...If there is any way to improve the view - I say go for it.
There are a lot of other items we can suggest to a seller that are proven ways to sell a home at the most money they can get...and in the above case for more than any one in town has gotten so far.
