Hollis New Hampshire Statistics and Homes For Sale Hollis NH Community Profile & History Hollis, New Hampshire still maintains strong ties with its rural past. Originally settled as a part of Dunstable, Massachusetts, the town was incorporated by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth in 1746. Once known mainly for its corn, strawberries, orchards, and dairy and poultry farms, this affluent bedroom community is now also home to a number of business executives and their families. Despite the changes, Hollis has managed to preserve its small-town character. The Historic District in the center of town includes more than 100 historic homes and buildings, including the public library, town hall, the Congregational Church, and the Always Ready Engine House, which is now the home of the Historic...

Yesterday I decided to blog about electric heat because of the fallacies that people have about electricity as a heat source here in New Hampshire. A blogger made a good point - fossil fuels in NH use to be far less expensive than electricity.  However, that is no longer the case with the price of oil consistently on the rise. While blogging about geothermal, wind turbine, and electricity it occurred to me there must be a comprehensive "energy" site that can assist consumers with determining the best option. The U.S. Department of Energy has a great site that talks about fossil fuels, and what it is as well as defines types of energy sources including bioenergy, coal, electric power, fusion, hydropower, natural gas, nuclear, oil, solar, renewables, etc.  This site is found at http://www...

With housing prices and down and new construction costs up (due to lumber and transportation costs) it seems almost impossible for a builder to be able to find land in Hollis or Southern New Hampshire and build a "competitive" house in order to compete with "existing construction" price per square foot sales. However, a consideration might be - "make your house SMART!"  Obviously, just as technology changes, so do design and infrastructure changes in new construction. For example, lighter more efficient appliances, security systems built-in, and a house that is just plain smart makes all the sense in the world to me. What is a SMART HOUSE you might ask? It is a house where all the technology component systems are interconnected.  They connect appliances, music, alarm systems, etc. toget...

As a Southern New Hampshire Real Estate Agent active in social media it is unclear as to what the business result will be from "blogging" and other social arenas.  It has been approximately 3 months that I have been active with various accounts in order to gain real estate exposure in my marketplace (Hollis and Nashua, in particular), however, my problem is vendors! Since I set up my accounts, I get no less than 2 solicitations a day to buy a web plug-in product, and idx product, SEO solution, brand new website, you name it... very distracting. Thus far, my leads in real estate have come from the video posted on YouTube - nothing from activerain, twitter, facebook, or other social medias. I'm wondering how long it takes to "blog" or to "connect" before you see social media working for y...

You can get a free blog almost anywhere on the net but how about free blogging from email! If you send an email to post@posterous.com you'll get a blog setup.  You can then email photos, videos, text, whatever... and posterous will automatically BLOG it for you.  There is no application menus to deal with through a web browser interface. I'm using blogger.com and activerain.com but I'm definitely liking posterous. Posterous will also embed lots of different file formats so your youtube video will automatically display when you email it.  In other words, you don't have to try and figure out how to link it, embed the link... blah, blah... blah. Posterous also has an iPhone app for all you iPhone users.  I'm a blackberry gal myself, but I'm thinking about my alternatives because of my new ...

Hollis NH - Trail Maps As a busy real estate Broker with Integrity Residential Brokerage located in Pepperell, MA, it's sometimes challenging to carve out some time for R&R.  One of the ways I like to relax is to take my wonderful registered Morgan and hit the trails on weekends.  I always try to explore new trails and thought I'd try the Hollis NH Town Forest.  A quick internet search for Hollis NH Trail Maps and I was on my way! I live in Pepperell, MA and arrived at the Hollis NH Silver Lake State Park  parking lot in approximately 10 minutes. Parking the horse trailer was extremely easy. Another nice feature is that the trails are very well marked.  Trail maps are posted throughout the Town Forest. The only thing missing is a "You Are Here" arrow! While I was doing my internet searc...

Hollis,  New Hampshire Foreclosured, Short Sale and Bank Owned Real Estate Purchasing property at a Hollis NH foreclosure auction has many risks to a potential buyer and in most cases the bank will bid and take possession of the property at the auction. The property is then referred to as bank owned, REO (real estate owned) or foreclosed property. A home owner may attempt a "short sale" whereby the bank agrees to accept less than the mortgage balance based on the owner's hardship and financial status. Obtaining approval can be a long and difficult process. Additionally, there is no assurance that the lender will accept an offer at or above the listed price. Register at Hollis NH foreclosures (bank-owned) listings and short sale opportunities. We will contact you and provide: A list of e...
