Last year, average home listing prices in Barnstead decreased 6.2 percent, perhaps reflecting the waning popularity of the local area. The average listing price this year is $182,508 from a previous $194,563. There are quite a few waterfront lots in this place now available but they are understandably in high demand. You and your loved ones can enjoy the experience of a real fireplace in a number of the homes throughout this city. Summertime in this place is very fun and lively since quite a few homes have swimming pools where the neighbors like to have barbecues and parties.
