Hi,

Overall, the Seacoast area has proven to be a good investment. Through the past few years, the Seacoast has had a lower unemployment rate than the rest of the state, NH is consistenly rated one of the best places to live and the area does have so much to offer!

The real estate market has been steady and we are now seeing prices rise a bit. Even during the worst, this area didn't get hit as hard as most.

For property taxes, each town has it's own rate. Here's the link to the state governments list:

http://www.revenue.nh.gov/munc_prop/property-tax-rates-related-data/2012/documents/2012TaxRateReport.pdf

For an overview, Seacoast area towns range from $14.13 in Greenland to $25.92 in Exeter per $1000 of assessed value - so there is quite a range and property tax is an important factor to consider.
Some of the area:
Brentwood $23.24 East Kingston $23.56 Exeter $25.92 Kensington $20.08
Hampton $17.77 Hampton Falls $19.98 Newfields $23.02 North Hampton $16.05
Portsmouth $17.55 Rye $11.22 Stratham $19.31 Greenland $14.13

For schools, try this site: http://www.greatschools.org/new-hampshire/. Best advice is to talk to parents you may know in the area.

As for properties, I would love to help you more! Please feel free to contact me at your convenience. I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

HI, I think a big mud room is more important as most owners are just up on the weekend and although it's nice to have a car in the garage, odds are you won't get snow the 2 days a week you are in the property. Just my opinion! ... more

In order to answer your question best, I would love to know more about why you are interested in this answer, and more so what are your plans, because you must have some plans or thoughts. You know the general median price within a period of 6 months is probably totally worthless to you or your decision making process.

Just think that a general median price a little up or down in 6 months means nothing unless your particular location, and its appeal, lot size, home size, age, lot size, amenities, quality of construction etc. etc. are put into the comparison, and then based on all the information an experienced Realtor
who knows your area around Windham NH can provide you with an adjusted and market competitive
market evaluation and some information about whether prices have gone up, are stable or otherwise
during the last 6 months, remember that you are also talking about the winter months, when Spring and Summer markets can be quite different.

If you need a good recommendation for a Realtor in your area, feel free to contact me and I gladly
pass a good recommendation on to you.
Good Luck to you

Drury Drive is a rural residential area built mostly in the 80's about 2 miles outside of town. It is a nice neighborhood with the typical home having 1-3 acre house lot.
Lyons Ave is also a nice neighborhood within walking distrance to town with most homes built in the 50's and 60's on 1/4 -1/3 acre lots.

I've lived and worked in Rochester most of my life and know the area pretty well. Please feel free to contract me if you have any specific questions or concerns.

It means the property is listed by a new agent - that makes no sense to me at all. Every property I have bought has been something of an investment.

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
This is not a real listing for a home for sale.... If you are really interested in buying a property or selling one you should definitely work with a local experienced Realtor to assist you, who will have access not only to all new listings, reduced prices, but also to recently sold similar homes, so that when you find the
right home for you, the REaltor will provide you with a market evaluation for the particular home you are
interested in so that you can make a well educated offer...

If you need a recommendation of a local Realtor get back to me and I gladly send one your way.
Good Luck to you

This is one of those questions hard to answer, more sq.ft., elevator building or not, 2 baths or 1 or 1 1/2
garage or outside parking, hardwood flooring or carpeting, older or newer, all that will influence the
rent and would you want a balcony or some outside space etc. etc., so unless we know a little more
of what you are looking for it is hard to give you a range or a number

here are 8 rentals in Somersworth NH and you can see these 2 bedroom rentals have wide range
of rental fee....
Your best idea would be to connect with a local Realtor to find you the right rental for YOU and make sure that you have a solid lease agreement.

But here for your info the rent for 8 Somersworth rentals

1 Squire Drive Somersworth, NH 03878
$2,000 3 Bed, 2 Bath 0 Sq Ft

Tracey Langdon answered:
Good Morning

Depending on what kind of an agent you are looking. Here are a few questions to get you started. Also you should be able to feel comfortable with the agent you chose.


As a buyer:

How will you search for my new home?
Do you know the area?

As a seller:

How will you market my home?
How often do you advertise?
Will you show me a sample flyer?
Do you know the area?

Hope this helps

There are many good areas in Southern NH, if this is your fist investment property then I would say close to the I93 and Rt3 corridor. It is also advised to look in your back yard (as close to you as possible) unless you plan to have the property professionally managed. ... more

A reasonable opening bid would depend on the fair market value of the property in question.
A lot of times at foreclosure auctions the bank will take the property back for less then market value in order to minimize tax stamps, especially if no one shows up to bid. ... more

Hi,

There have been few properties on the market in that complex. However, there have been no recent sales listed on the MLS. The latest entry was cancelled in late 2012 in the $240,000 range. There are none currently for sale on the MLS.

However, there are simliar properties on Leddy Dr and Hall Rd, and as many as 30 other similar syle properties currently on the market in that area.

I will be happy to discuss the available properties whenever it is convenient for you. Call me at 603-548-3148. Or you can email me at Danah@century 21.com

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

It is very unlikely. With the NH legislature splt sharply on whether to even approve casino gambling the next step is approving the location. There are various bills that call for 1, 2 or 3 casinos. There is no doubt one will be on the MA border in Salem at Rockingham Racetrack. the other locations noted were Hudson and more viable at NHMS in Loudon. ... more
