You do know flipping houses is risky and not always a profit. The tv shows only show the glory.

The only thing I have seen near that price here in NH is mobile homes in park settings.

All great answers below. Another option that I thought of could be to look for current plots of land in the area that may be able to be subdivided. Look up the owners in the public records and attempt to contact them to see if they might be interested in selling some of their land. The success rate will probably be low, but it is worth a try. Also, you could look at expired listings.

I checked for you and there are three land listings in Hampton Falls right now. I'm not sure if you have already looked at these or not. Here is the info (sorry about the formatting).

Nick you certainly could accept there is nothing protecting you from a variety of potential problems. the first is if you did find a seller who would do thiis, you would have to pay to bring them current which could be expensive. Then if you are paying them, how do you know if they are using your money to pay the mortgage? if you pay the bank directly, you have no control over onwership, that owner can sell to soemone else, they could call teh bank and turn the house over to them of take out anothe rloan of the property. the key is you have nothing to secure yourself to that house, no way to guarantee you will be able to get the house deeded into your name. If you could find an assumable mortgage where you take over the mortgage, at leats it is deeded to you and you have all the protections. With just making payments, you have no guarantees... ... more

Ben a condominium differs from a single family in that all the exterior care will be taken care of for you. They may have amenities such as a pool and clubhouse a single family wont have. Where they are newer there will be less maintenance. With a single family you can get more privacy and can get a similar sized home as the condo but you will have to hire soemone to maintain. Alot of over 55 complexes have snow birds, it is relatively easy in the condo to winterize and head out for the winter, neighbors will be watching, maintenance will still plow your driveway and shovel the walk. In a single family you have to hire it all out, and your neighbors may not be as close to watch your house.

i would be more than happy to email you listing sheets and assist you with finding a home here in NH. Just email me direct at and i can get them right out so you can see the prices.

Good morning,
After reading your question, I thought of the number of relocation clients (coming from overseas or out of the NE area) that I have worked with. The answer comes down to what type of town you are looking for based on what it offers and also what your price range is. Anywhere in the general NH seacoast area is going to be close to the ocean and also relatively close to most major communitng byways. You need to think about what type of property you would like and what you want directly around you.

Price will impact this decision greatly. Directly on the seacoast, the difference between a 4 bedroom 2000 square foot home in Seabrook will be significantly less than the same in Hampton Falls or Rye. If you would like a condo - you would be hard pressed to find any in Hampton Falls, North Hampton or Rye. Hampton, Exeter, Stratham and Portsmouth have dozens to choose from.

There is such a different feel in each town as well. Seabrook and Hampton have quite a bit more commercial development on Rt 1 as does Exeter/Stratham on Portsmouth Ave. If being close (within a 7 minute drive) to supermarkets, drugstores etc is imp., than these work well. Depending on where a home is in Rye, Hampton Falls, the outskirts of Exeter etc, it may be a bit more of a trek to get that gallon of milk.

Taxes vary greatly, the way the local government is run varies town to town and the population does as well. It is one of the great things about the area. Each town truly has its own personality.

I think that once you answer some of these questions, you will be able to zoom in on which towns will work best. It is a great place to live!!!

Good luck.
