Sadly the rates are up to 29 mils here, which translates to 2900 per hundred thousand of appraised value. My 125k appraised home taxes are now up to ~$300/month. I'm selling my 3BR home at 3 White Road for 145k after 50k of improvements. ... more

Railroad Square is another that is right there, depends of how much of a quality one you are looking for. There is another smaller cost effective one that is only a 1 minute walk at the top of the square also, but ones do not come on the market there very often. I lived in Keene for the last 3 years in the Wright Estates which is a condo development 2 miles from the center of town. If you are ok with that kind of distance, that is truly a great place.... ... more

Absolutely! Keene is a city that continues to attract many due to its strong school system. As you mentioned, there are plenty of homes on the market that are in need of TLC. My suggestion would be to look for the homes that have features (that can't be changed) that will attract buyers. For example: location, the land plot, and neighborhoods. Please let me know if I can assist you in any way. ... more

I am truly not sure on that one but an agent like Lee below can help you find all the answers you need, Even suggest a cul de sac neighborhood that you could obtain, restore and be o9n control of, rebuilding one leaves the wings on each side ruffled, I would buy the whole bird and control it. I think federal or even local rehab funding may be available but again as a pro like Lee. If you need a Realtor or if Lee is not available, I have many great agents in the area and I'll be glad to recommend some to you if you like.

Just let me know - be happy to help !!

Kee in mind that square footage costs do vary, and doesn't account for location and other considerations, such as property size, condition, etc.; therefore, it's really in your best interest to also review comps, recently closed sold similar properties in the immediate area... ... more

You should know that the average time a home is on the market can differ depending what type of property, what price range it is in and the condition. You can get a general amount of time which has been under 90 days but there are properties that are selling quickly such as bank owned and soem staying on teh market alot longer. The most important thing you can do is to have a Broker Price Opinnion completed on your home. This should tell you what you house is worth now and the approximate time to sell it. You should receive what it is worth, what you should ask and what price it will proabily sell for. I hope i could help. ... more

Barry Miller (whose answer follows mine) gives you good data, and a sense of how the market is going.
You can see from the data that the (velocity of sales) i.e. the total number of homes sold per year has shrunk, and while the dollars per square foot seem to have gone up, really the data shows that the less expensive homes are not selling at all, and that the finer quality homes are selling but for less money than we've seen in the recent past.

The attitude of the sellers today is such that sellers don't believe they will get an offer at this time of year, so many have decided to pull their homes from the MLS inventory. You will see a glut of homes on the market in late February or early March--depending on the amount of snow on the ground. A good thaw will do wonders for the inventory--at issue is, will there be buyers in place at that time? If there are buyers taking advantage of their tax refunds and any tax credit (from the Administration) and a new lower mortgage rate from the Fed, then maybe we Realtors will be busy.
