Move to NH?

Move to NH?

PostBy: Stoker6268 On: Fri Sep 11, 2009 5:45 pm

Just posted this on the VT side too as we havent made up our minds yet.-
This is a way cool forum topic. My wife and I are going to be moving from CT to VT or NH asap (hopefully next year or sooner) We havent even made a trip to NH yet, only VT but was wondering what parts of the state are nice, affordable, stable and might be to our liking. Looking for rural, but not totally out in the sticks with no civilization. Wife will have a job no matter what/where. I will have to be looking for something new. Looking to stick to the middle to lower half of the state. Any info would be great!

Hi Stoker! Check out this link
http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2008/fsb ... sb/13.html

Manchester is the largest city, and is an hour from the mountains, the ocean, and also to Boston. You can get a nice place in Auburn NH, which is like being in the country, and only 5 minutes outside of the city of Manchester. I spend a lot of time in Auburn, and would like to move there myself. There are also many other towns just outside of Manchester that are nice as well.
Also, our drinking water has been rated one of the tops in the country. Here is the link:

http://www.manchesternh.gov/Departments ... -Watershed

This lake is 5 minutes from my house. No swimming allowed, as it is for drinking. There are a few treatment plants of course!
NO sales tax. NO income tax.
Come move to NH ! John

Hello stoker6268. Your politics must be open to discussion if you are considering VT or NH. We don't have the same tax structure as MA, ME, RI or VT, however we manage to "fee you" to death. :rambo3:
The aroma from south of the border would indicate that the "pig farming" is below us, not in scenic NH.
Do you have any special place in mind? Lots of really nice folks in all areas of the state. Be advised that you might want to keep the "I have burned coal for years" for the second social gathering. Most figure it is Bit and you would stink up several miles around your home. You might get acid rain on the 'eco-bunnies Prius'. I've been burning anthracite since 1972 and still no one has seen a plume above my place of abode. They still don't believe I burn any form of coal.
It's not that far east to west, and the south to north trip gives new meaning to "anyone other than Moose live up here? :alone: :alone: :alone: :dancing: :nono: :eek2:

Come on up....soon. It is quiet here, so If you need a new residence, let me know. 40 years experience as a GC and builder. I can show you many new residences with passive solar; active solar; geo-thermal; bio fuel boilers; ultra efficient oil and gas boilers; earth houses; super insulated homes and my favorite.....coal fired heating systems from the good folks in PA! :notworthy: :clap: :dancing:

Your smart to stay away from Mass! ;) I would take NH over VT though. VT is too liberal for me.

It will be on ESPN and you won't have to endure the traffic............Looks like great weather for the event, and that is good news for the 100,000+ race fans. Good food, good weather, good times.....great racin'! Bring it on!

Back to the original question, the foliage should be waning by Oct 10th up north, but central and southern areas will be awaiting the leaf peepers. Freshly made apple cider is a real delight. Crisp, cold and sweet.....

We look forward to your visit! Bring lots of money, it's been a rainy summer and we need a boost! :D :D :roll: :clap: :woot:

I live 10 mi from the ocean, can be in the mountains in 1 1/2 hrs (ok the lower mountains-LOL), boston is 50 mi and the big lake is less than n hour. there's still enough stubborn yankees in NH even if wwe have a Dem gov and congress folks.

bagged coal is the norm here, and wood piles abound

prop taxes are rugged, but no income or sales (yet) maybe this next election we can throw out a few dems anf start to regain sanity here.

do-gooders from Mass have ruined the place inthe last 20 years, but the lousy housing market everywhere is slowing their arrival

It's still the best place to live in NE

A lot of the blow-ins that have ruined this state have been coming from NY, NJ, PA and CT.

A large number of the MA people that came to NH were sick of the MA politics, they settled in the SE corner of NH state where they vote conservative.

Property tax rates are pretty much town dependent with the big spending liberal towns having the highest. You will find that the states like VT with their income and sales taxes have property taxes that are not far from NH's.

Although somewhat dated (2005) you might want to chack out "Total tax per capita" column in this link.

BTY if you are a liberal voter, move to VT.

I agree for the most part however, alot of the Mass people coming up would still rather pay a little more in taxes so that the state can take care of them and they vote that way too...not to mention they still dont like my guns (most of them).

You see it more and more every day...everyone thinks they are entitled to something and have no concept of personal responsibility...That state of mind comes directly from a "nanny state"
