New Hampshire Real Estate Market Trends & Analysis

New Hampshire’s economy has improved dramatically in a relatively short period of time. For the better part of a decade, the entire state has seen encouraging growth in both its labor force and available jobs. Few states, for that matter, have a better unemployment rate than New Hampshire. Improvements in the local economy have translated into a healthier housing industry, too. Pending sales have increased year-over-year and homes are selling faster. It is worth noting, however, that wages haven’t been able to maintain the same pace as appreciation rates within the New Hampshire real estate market.

After nearly seven consecutive years of appreciation, real estate in New Hampshire has become less and less affordable. Rents, in particular, have increased dramatically in as little as five year’s time, and vacancies are almost non existent. As a result, a great deal of people are left with no other option than to buy, which places sellers and investors in a great position.
