There's the potential for new development , someone definitely owns that huge plot of land adjacent ( it sold recently) to bloody brook. Future home values will depend on how that area is developed, if it's larger homes, great, if it's condos, not so great.
There are lots of other areas in Amherst to look at.... more
Owners can not list their home for sale on Trulia, only licensed agents. If you need assistance in selling a home in NH, i would be happy to help. If your home is located outside of NH, yolu may want to correct the location on your question to reach the appropriate people.
When I moved here from Massachusetts, a border state, I notice how well maintained the roads are in the winter. NH takes great pride in snow removal. If you drive just over the state line after a winter storm you will see a marked difference in the condition of the road. Let it snow...... more
You may do pretty much anything to the interior of the home. The exterior must meet qualified guidelines provided by the Amherst Historical Commission. The entire Village is on the National Historic Register. You will have to have new windows approved, you may not put vinyl siding up etc. You will need to present your plans to the Committee at their monthly meeting. Pretty much anything that can be seen from the street is regulated. This is done to preserve the look and feel of the Village and it's authenticity. It also protects the resale value of all of the homes in the village in this manner.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any other questions, I would be happy to guide you in your purchasing process.
Janice as a For Sale by Owner you can not list your home here on Trulia. Only licensed agents and brokers can do that. Listing your home for sale in an effort to save money often does not go well. A good listing agent will provide you with a marketing plan and assist you in pricing the home correctly to bring about the quickest sale at the best obtainable price. Often with a quicker sale and better sale price the cost of a listing agent more than pays for itself. If you would like some help in selling your home I can let you know the different marketing plans we offer where you can save on the commission if you choose. There is no obligation. What most owners need to know is without any buyers, there can not be a sale. A good listing agent will provide that exposure to reach the buyers that are ready, willing and ABLE to purchase a home. We work with the buyer agents looking out for your interest and guiding you through each step of the selling process. I hope to hear from you soon.... more
James they key is looking at who the most probable buyer is in an over 55 community. Most of the times is a couple selling their life long home to move into a new(er) home with little to no mainteance. They owe nothing on their home and pay cash for the new home. Because alot of people are still not comfortable selling yet, they may not know the market HAS changed to their favor. There are alot of buyers and few listings available for residential homes. They think they can not sell their home in this market to be able to move but actually could, they just need to choose the right Realtor to do it. Then as far as the re-sales in these areas, as noted the owners did buy at peak and may not be ready to take a loss. The ones you see selling are usually facing a reason they HAVE to sell and you see a more realistic price where they do not last long. If you are looking to buy, call or email me, I would love to help you or answer any other questions.... more

Karina it depends on how teh short sale was recorded on your credit report, only a lender can judge how bad teh report is, if you can even get a mortgage within 2 years of a short sale you are pretty lucky a smost people can not. The best advice is to meet with a couple of different lenders. You need to ask them direct if a cosigner will help lower the down payment, if not and they all say 20% is your only way than you need to find a house that will do a lease purchase if the one you have choosen will not. Good luck in working things out... more
