Merrimack NH Home values and revaluation Merrimack NH is going through a town wide real estate property revaluation, as are many of the towns in the State of New Hampshire. The State requires periodic revaluations every five years of towns and cities so that all properties within a municipality will be equalized to share in the tax burden fairly. Most Merrimack NH residents should have received a copy of their Merrimack NH home's assessed value in June 2011.  The town Assessors did not visit all properties, in fact performed their updates doing drivebys and a Merrimack NH home sales data review. The last full valuation was done in 2006 and prices have dropped of course since then. Merrimack residents can call the Town of Merrimack Assessing Department at 603 424-1234 with questions. For...

With much applause we welcomed this reduction in the New Hampshire unemployment rate. NH's unemployment rate has held well below the national average during the downturn.  Gov. John Lynch released a statement calling April's unemployment rate "tremendous news for our workers, our businesses and our state . . . as we continue to lead the nation in economic recovery." "The reason New Hampshire is outperforming virtually every other state is because we have a successful economic strategy in place," Lynch said. As the jobs situation improves and home buyers feel more confident about their job security, this is translating into more home sales for New Hampshire. Buyers need to jump in and take advantage of the great home prices and opportunities while these interest rates are still low. Amhe...

A busy NH real estate market this week A recent survey reported in Inman News came up with some interesting results:     Almost 70% of buyers and sellers think real estate values and sales will recover in the next year or two. Over 85% believe real estate is a good investment. Nearly 60% of buyers in the market say they are ready to take advantage of the market opportunities (although express concern about whether they can get the price for their existing home that will enable them to buy). We deal with this every day in NH as in the rest of the country.  There are opportunities in today's real estate market and as we've said many times, coupled with low interest rates still under 5%, what an opportunity. A seller may take a hit on the sale of their exisiting home, but will make it up w...

Spring is just around the corner and many of us are looking for a nice cleanup of our properties.  My favorite Amherst NH landscaping company is Freedom Groundworks.  They service Amherst, Bedford, Milford, Merrimack, Hollis, Brookline and the surrounding areas. We have used Freedom Groundworks for years and they are neat and do a very nice job.  They are dependable and most importantly they are FAIR. Call our friend,  Tom Roberts, at Freedom Groundworks to schedule your Spring Cleanup and landscaping services. They will perform a cleanup and remove all sticks and branches, blow down the entire lawn and planting beds. Then comes the fun part, the mulch...there is nothing like fresh bark mulch to freshen the landscape. Freedom Groundworks is a full service landscaping company, lawn maint...
