I am unaware of exactly how taxes are calculated in Mass. I believe they are determined the same way as in NH, however Mass has both income and sales tax, while NH does not.

In NH, real estate taxes are determined by each town. Here is a list of current tax rates sorted by town in NH:

Please let me know if I can help further...

It is easy, NH does not have an income or sales tax. You will see a slightly higher property tax bill which is far outweighed by the opportunity to buy a bigger home with a bigger lot at a better price than over the border. There are several types of neighborhoods if you are looking fo rthe city, suburban or rural areas, we have them all. You will find less traffic and less congestion and once again, just think of teh savings in income and and sales taxes.

Sounds like a legal question that we can't answer, BUT anyone can place a lien on property and it has to be addressed if it ever sells. If I was you I would, but that is not a legal answer just my worthless opinion. ... more

Good Morning,

The affect the turbines will have depends on quite a few variables. Anything that "changes" the landscape will have some impact. I am still trying to obtain FACTUAL information on the issue. As happened when discussions about Northern Pass began it took some time to separate fact, from fiction and/or speculation and exaggeration. Then you have personal opinion to take into consideration. Some people appreciate the "green" energy and don't consider them a minus, others don't want to live anywhere they can "see or hear" them.

Another indicator regarding values will be the affect turbines have had in other locations throughout the State.

I wish I could be more pointed with my response but I need to do some more research before I can give any specific answers.

Scott Godzyk answered:
Scott I can certainly help. The two choices that come to mind are the suburban areas of Manchester which has some very nice neighborhoods, more land and easy access to the culture you seek. If yolu want to circle out to one of the communities around Manchester, you can get a more rural feel but be within 15 to 20 minutes of shopping, restaurants etc. If you would like some help please email me at and I can certainly help. ... more

Hi Stephanie,

There are a variety of great homes available in your price range in Portsmouth. The area you should focus on really depends on what you are looking for.

Would you like to be close to Portsmouth's downtown with shopping, nightlife, and restaurants?
Are you looking for a historic home or newer construction?
Close to the Ocean?
Are the major traffic arteries important?

If you would like assistance in your home buying please give me a call. I would be happy to help you.

Hi Darlene,

Always great to do your research before making the decision to move.
To find out about area schools you can go on the NH Dept of Education and click on profiles and report cards by town then school. This website has a wealth of information.

Best of luck.

I don't think this is going to happen, Dave. There are too many scams, where people claim to owe somebody a thousand bucks when all they want to do is stalk and harass them, for responsible people to be coughing up information.

All the best,

In response to your question, normally banks do not rent a home that they foreclosed to the previous owner. Banks will eventually put the home on the resale market for sale and close escrow.

Properties that are rented, the landlord typically pays the property taxes and homeowner insurance. The tenants will pay for rental insurance to cover their personal property in the home

Hi Ann,

New London is a fantastic town and the real estate prices and opportunities have become extremely favorable this year. When you run the numbers from Jan. 1st, 2011 until today the median sales price is down from $335,000 in 2010 to $281,400. Due to the drop in sales prices, homes sales in New London have actually been up compared to last year. So far 12 more properties have sold in 2011 (31 sales) than they did during the same time frame in 2010 (19 sales)!

If you would like to talk more about real estate in the area, please don't hesitate to give me call or shoot me an email. The following links will take you to recent price reductions in the area.

It sounds like you've been doing your homework. The greater Nashua area is home to a lot of people who make their living in northern Massachusetts for the very reasons you have cited. Home prices are very reasonable and the quality of life is much higher. We offer cleaner air, excellent schools and hospitals, a much lower crime rate as well as easy access to metropolitan Boston, the seashore and NH ski areas. Please contact me for any information you may need about Nashua, Pelham and surrounding communities. I look forward to assisting you in any way I can. ... more

Danny i would need to know the address so i can look it up for you. Your best bet is to ask teh listing agent. you may also want to pull up the plot plan and tax map at Salem Townhall. Then you will want to ask them at townhall to see the flood map and they can show you what area's are considered in teh 100 year flood plain. You shoudl have a buyers agent who can assist you with this. Please feel free to email me at if you need assistance. good luck with your search. ... more

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
