Hi Sara

If the rules say only 2 occupants and you intend on having more than that while you are in that association, the association can make you leave especially if you do not have prior approval.

If you would like some help in finding a home I would be more than happy to help.

The amount you pay in advance is what is used to start your escrow account. You should ask your loan officer to explain this to you and they can show you on paper as well. You could also ask your buyer broker who should be guiding you as well. good luck with your closing. ... more

Suggest you request a copy of the Home Owners Association Budget and Financials, check the condo fee and taxes as well.

The Buyer is best advised to directly contact the condo association in order to
obtain the most accurate and up to date information available regarding the fee, reserve, budget, and all regulatory information. It is better not to involve a "middle man" who is not the primary source of information. ... more

Judi Monday, CRS answered:
Not necessarily--it typically means the homeowner's lender has determined that they qualify for a short sale. Once an offer is on the table the lender will determine if the priced offered is reasonable based on the market comps--often they will order a BPO (Broker Price Opinion) to use in making their decision. ... more

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:

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: 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

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.

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
