What are the property prices like in NH? I have relatives in RI (I've lived in HI and the west coast for 35 yrs) and from what I've seen, real estate on the east coast is unbelievably high. I'm wondering about rural property. If they choose, NH, I might want to move there! NH real estate is fairly pricy -- in my town (Bedford), the average home sells for around $320k, but that is a bargain compared to many towns inside the 495 belt in Massachusetts. Since NH doesn't have a sales or income tax, property taxes are fairly expensive. But there are dramatic differences between towns. Some towns are stictly bedroom communities, therefore relatively high taxes, and others with industrial/retail bases quite a bit lower. I feel that NH is losing it's "conservatism". We're an island surrounded by liberals - all states surrounding us are "blue states". Although NH does attract it's fair share of conservatives, mainly liberals from other states are moving in and dirtying the conservative environment here.

Thanks - I'll try the search later when I have time. It sounds too expensive for the likes of me! My husband and I have 5 acres of woods and are (slowly) building on it, cost of land in SW OR was 35K. If NH prices can offer something equivalent (or cheap fixer houses), I'll start packing if it is the state chosen!
