When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods. http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/ https://www.crimereports.com/http://www.homefair.com/ ... more

Hello, our agency services Hillsborough-Deering area. Deering is a quaint New England village that is a "suburb" if you will of Hillsborough. The Deering police department can give you the actual crime rate which I am sure you will hear is very low. If we can be of any assistance feel free to give Adam at the Manning Williams Agency a call. ... more

I lived in Salem 20 years. Over that time, the retail strip expanded into a giant megaplex.

Salem is where Lawrence shops. Along with the shoppers, come the drug dealers, auto thieves,
shop lifters, and other undesirables.

Just recently(Aug.27th 2013), the Lawrence Eagle Tribune reported that the town of Salem N.H. is on target to arrest 2700 people this year, up from 2100 last year.
Where are there people coming from? The police chief said Massachusetts and Northern New Hampshire. To give a perpective, the town I now live in, with similar population arrested 600 people
last year.

My guess is that drug dealers figure Salem is a good place to do drug deals. Of course, this puts a
lot of strain on the local authorities to stop this illegal behavour.

As far as a place to live, Salem is O.K.. HOWEVER, expect a spike in the tax rate. The school
district needs to renovate Salem High School at a cost of $75 million dollars. The tax rate in Salem
is currently $20.58 per asessed thousand. The high school bond will add another $2.00 per thousand
over the current rate. Also in the background is that the town needs a new police station along with
more police to combat the rising crime rate.

For a nice town, with a reasonable tax rate, check out Hudson N.H.

George there are many nice areas of every border town,. Once you get out of teh "city" or "downtown" areas you get to the suburban areas of nice neighborhoods, larger lots, a variety of homes, ages and prices. Nashua does have nice areas just as well as Hudson, Pelham, Salem and if you are looking upscale Windham. If you need some help, i would love to be able to work with you and get you some listing sheets so you can drive by and check them out. I look forward to hearing from you.

I was on the street today, it seems to be quiet. It is in an area of similar homes. The best way to get an insight of an area is to either spend some time driving by during different times of teh day, sit and listen. It may be a bit cold to walk, but walking through a neighborhood and asking the people who currently live there works well also. ... more

Jen as far as classification for what is considered violent, you can go to the Manchester Police website http://www.manchesternh.gov/website/Departments/Police/tabid/185/Default.aspx and check with them. In most classes it is armed robbery, assault, murder, attempted murder or any crime with violence to a person. ... more

Heather - you have probably already figured this out. Agents can't really tell you the truth of an area. Here's what you do: Call the RPD - ask them about the crime rate in the area you are interested in. By the way - if this is near Lafayette. Academy Street etc - you may want to think twice. Do a drive by during the day - are people home or are they working? Is the property maintained well? How are they managing their rubbish? Are there so many people per unit that it is spilling over even though it isn't trash day? What is the ratio of owners to rentals? How are the schools? I am not dissin' Lafayette or Academy - the streets are lovely - have potential and most of the people want to be part of the change. However, there are some slum lords there and a history of DV and drug situations.... Form your own and more educated opinion by asking the pd, fire department and a teacher in the district. ... more

Hi Stacy,
I am a REALTOR in Franklin and I live in Hill, which shares the same middle and high schools as Franklin. I moved up here in 1988 and my children have both graduated from the Franklin High School. I agree with Marsha Foden. This city has a safe small town feeling and it is smack dab in the middle of all kinds of recreational possibilities. Check out www.franklinnh.org for Town government info and http://newhampshire.hometownlocator.com/nh/merrimack/franklin.cfm for a helpful community profile. Better yet. Why don't you plan a visit and don't forget to stop by Granny Judy's, at the junction of Route 3 and Route 3A North (across from Benson's Auto), for some homestyle cooking. This is my favorite breakfast stop. :-) ... more
