You can contact any agent you like, it does not have to be from the same agency. I recommend that buyers to a bit of research, read agent profiles, meet with a few different agents and find the one that you are most comfortable working with and then move forward with looking at properties. Keep in mind that a listing agents priority is to work in the best interest of the seller, therefore, your interests will come second. For example, a listing agent is going to negotiate towards getting the highest price and best terms for the seller, while the buyer's agent is going to negotiate to get the lowest price and terms for the buyer. Good luck in your search! ... more

Good Morning,

When buying a home in NH you rtypical costs are $495 for the closing/title company that includes searching teh deed and conducting the closing. In NH there is a transfer tax in whohc the buyer pays $7.50 per thousand of the sales price and the seller pays $7.50 per thousand dollars of the sales price. If your bank or mortgage company is charging points, each point is 1% of teh mortgage amount. There are assorted fees of recoring the deed and currier fees that are usually $100. A good round number on average is closing costs are 3% of the sales price. Your loan officer should and is required to give you a good faith estimate of closing costs when you apply for your loan.

good luck with your purchase

Good Morning Erika,

Trulia uses Google maps to locate properties. If a property is placed on the map in teh wrong place, you could go to, on the upper left click on maps and send them a comment with the correction so google can correct their maps. I dont beleve Trulia has the ability to make those changes on it's sites, so going straight to googloe would be your best bet. I hope this helps. ... more

Hi Jill,

By now you have seen this bedroom question is a gray area. My suggestion is to sit down with your Realtor and show him/her the answers you have gotten to your question. Go over the responses and then decide what's the best avenue for you in marketing your home.

I would suppose that if the city of Keene calls the house a 3 bedroom on the tax card, then that is what it is. And because the tax card is usually a document reviewed in the transaction by the buyer, it would be smart to use that information in the listing. On the other hand, if the tax card says you have 4 bedrooms and you really have 3, tell the Assessor and get an adjustment--you've been paying too much tax.

If you are located in an area of the city that does not have town water and sewer--meaning that you have a septic system, then the ability of the septic to process water will determine how many bedrooms you can legally have. Usually the state of NH determines that there would be a maximum of 2 people per bedroom, and each person would average 60 gallons of water a day for all uses, washing, toilet, dishwasher etc.

A septic that can handle 360 gallons a day would be required for a 3 bedroom home. ( 6 people x 60 gallons). Sometimes the data on a septic is not available--but generally something is known and is recorded on the field tax card at the city hall. It doesn't matter that you use one room as an office and there are only 2 people living in the home...this is how the state does it. (See no closets involved).

Good luck with your sale.
