very interesting question indeed. It could be a pro or it could be a con. Really, it could go either way for you.
Make a list , a pro and con list.
Then list all the pros on one side and all the cons on the other.
Then look at both sides.
How do you feel when you look at both sides? Which side of the list can you live with?
Things to put on the list:
1. what state you work in.
2. where is your car registered.
3. where do you shop.
4. what tax bracket are you in.
5. Anything else you can think of that may affect your income

Whether large or small, the style of house, size of the house, age, lot size and with the small subdivision, what typoe of area surronds it? In addition whether small or large are the streets busy, slow, cul de sacs? The most important thing in Real Estate is location, location, location so neighborhood and these factors do matter.
All of these will affect value. A good buyer agent can assess what the value of each is in todays market for you. please let me know if you need help in your search.... more
Keene! I live in the Monadnock region myself (moved here from Nashua). If you wanted to be close to the big stores (like the ones in Keene, plus have Keene State close by you could also look at Dublin or Peterborough. I live in West Wilton, just 4 miles from Miller State Park and 5 miles from Peterborough, we go to Keene a lot but are also the same distance to Manchester and Nashua is also not far. Good luck, it's a great time to buy!... more
