Frank Roche, president of Roche Realty Group, which has offices in Meredith and Laconia, said "We are very pleased with the encouraging sales activity we have experienced this past winter and into the spring months. It certainly is a great indication that the market is improving and that many individuals are finding some great values out there in the marketplace."
Roche said the company had total sales volume of $30,659,408 involving 104 transaction sides. This sales volume resulted in Roche Realty Group being ranked as the #10 real estate firm in the state of New Hampshire in total sales volume for that period of time.
During 2012 the company had gross sales of approximately $80,000,000 involving 305 transaction, which represented at that time a 17% increase in unit sales over the previous year.

On the waterfront side, sales activity on Lake Winnipesaukee has been steady but not exceptional.

The majority of the sales year-to-date (17 sales) have been selling below the million dollar mark, which would appear to be below the average selling price of last year.
