Asked by cromano, Kittery Point, ME • Thu Mar 21, 2013
My husband and my jobs have both been relocated to Portsmouth. We have been doing a 1.5 hour commute to Boston for 5 years and are sick of it. Though we are not 100% positive our jobs will still be around in 5-10 years (lots of upheaval in the financial industries job market), we want to buy. Couple questions:
1. Is this a bad idea??? Should we just rent? We have a small daughter and would love to put down permanent roots in this area and currently have jobs which are very agreeable to working from home, which we frequently do. Is the job market in the area strong?
2. I have my eye on Exeter. I like the small town feel but it still seems like a lot of good restaurants and things to do in the area, reasonable commute if we have to go to Boston for the day which we sometimes still do. Are there other towns I should look at that have similar qualities? Are property taxes less in nearby towns? How about the schools, etc? Any advice is appreciated and sorry for the long post!
