It depends how your contract was written. Most state buyer has to notify if they have not been approved by 30 days to get their deposit back. They would not be in default until closing day. If your is written the other way, then you may, but either way your listing agent and or a lawyer should review the exact wording to be safe. ... more

Hi Christina! Have you found a rental yet? I checked the MLS, and as of now there is nothing that meets your criteria that allows the dog. I will keep my eyes out for you!

Hi Francine

The condo fees for Sea Oaks is $215 monthly. Sorry but this condo unit # 22 was sold in June of this year. And I do not see any others that are for sale in the MLS

Hi Gerry,

There are a few fees and expenses you can't dodge. Think taxes, clolsing costs and of course park fees. Because you are renting the land under the unit at Hemlock Haven, the owner will be charging you rent plus what amounts to a condo fee--and will doubtless include snow removal frfom the private roads, and a few amenities. I was a broker in NH for about 25 years and while I personally never sold a unit in HH, I have friends who lived there. So youwill pay cash, but you will not get away from a monthly living expense. Welcome to life in the two thousand and teens, where the dollar is not as valuable as it used to be... ... more

With any property you are interested in - use Google Maps and type in the address of the property, then the address of the beach you want to go to using Driving Directions feature. It will tell you how long to get there and how many miles.

Hi Ednaconzo

Beach access from Highland Ave is less than a mile. If you want to go to the center of Hampton Beach I'd have to say maybe a 2 minute drive.

You can always look it up on Google Maps

Hope this helps

Hello Douglas and Ruth, This property is actually already under contract and looks like it is awaiting closing day. Just a note, the property is closer to downtown Hampton. So approximately 4 miles to the Ocean (give or take). If I can help with your search, please reach out. Melani Taillon ... more

Thanks! At least now I understand why the usual lease jumps 4-fold in the summer. The problem is my daughter's 1-year lease in Hampton is up this weekend and it has been impossible to find anything remotely affordable beginning June 1! ... more

That is a great question, it should be directed to the State of NH parks department. Even with the snow fence, sand still manages to come through especially with the strong storms we saw this year. Many storms saw the waves breaking all the way up to the fence this year. ... more

Hi, Larry:

I will be out in CO this winter doing my usual three weeks of skiing in Jan and Feb.

Great question. I made a dozen calls to agents a year or so ago asking the same question.

Except for one agent in Manchester, NH who continues to have a great conversation with himself with lots of spelling errors and more puff pieces than content, here is what I learned. NOT WORTH IT.

I continue to weigh in on questions raised in my area and although I can tell you that no business has resulted from the effort, I feel that I am giving back and adding a valuable viewpoint to a lot of the "pick me" contributions. I am starting to wonder whether the questions are legit. As Tom Cruise said, "Show me the money!" I just like giving consumers real content compared to some of the other blah, blah or non-local responses that I see go by.

I happen to do a lot with land and have been fairly happy with Pro (all my listings, not just land). I have not looked at the pro/con of this site, but it generates a fair amount of traffic.

Here is what my office colleagues (fifty or so) and I think of Trulia. There are continually errors in the listing feeds, big errors. This cannot be our MLS system. Who has time to correct one's listings and check that over and over? When you complain, the first response is, "Sign up for Trulia Pro" Excuse me, but you are messing up my listings and adding to my wasted time while expecting me to jump on board. Thanx for the 'help." Trulia has to deliver a first class platform at the non subscriber level if they expect to attract premium subscribers.

Hey Trulia and Larry, give me a call if you want to chat. Chuck 603/677-2154
