Geographically, New Hampshire is a small state — but it has a rich history of leading the nation.

It was the first state to declare independence from England, the first to host a women's strike, and even created the nation's first free public library. Today, New Hampshire residents keep its trailblazing traditions alive by hosting the first presidential primary of the election season.

New Hampshire residents enjoy living within driving distance of mountains, lakes, and beaches. Its biggest cities include Manchester, Nashua, and Concord. Across state lines, major cities including Boston and Albany are within driving distance.

Frequently asked questions about New Hampshire real estate

Is it a buyer's or seller's market in New Hampshire?

It is currently a buyer’s market in New Hampshire; however, the market is heating up for sellers. Homes are selling for lower than they are worth — but the increasing demand and dwindling inventory are causing listing prices to rise. Although this is the overall state of the market, each city and town has its own trends, which is why it’s still important to consult with a real estate agent to understand your local trends.

Is New Hampshire a good state to invest in real estate?

Yes, New Hampshire is a good state to invest in real estate, especially in a more populated city like Manchester. However, you need to first find the best neighborhood to buy in and create a solid property management plan for your investment to pay off. Check out our guide to real estate investing to learn more.

Is it a good time to buy a house in New Hampshire?

Now might be a good time to buy a house in New Hampshire. Homes are selling for less than expected, and mortgage rates in the state are low at the moment. For the smoothest transaction, work with a local real estate agent to help you find the best deal on the perfect house.
