City living is expensive in Boston, and the suburbs aren't much more affordable either. Plus, you have to think about other factors, like the crime rate, which is high closer to the city.

HSH.com recently published a study that took a look at where the best place to live is for 17 different cities throughout the country. For Boston, the study showed that you are far better off living in New Hampshire than anywhere else. New Hampshire came in at 33.62% better than living in the city, Rhode Island is 14.25% better, and the suburbs of Boston ranked just 9.64% better.

July 2015 was an outstanding month for residential sales in New Hampshire. There were 1,887 single family homes that closed in July of this year.  Gains over last year for June and July were 15% and 19% respectively.  Apparently the lack luster spring months have resulted in a big summer push for homes in the state.

The average home price continues an upward march as well, reaching over $300,000 for the first time in any given month for the past 6+ years.

The Gove Group and Langdon Construction are pleased to announce that Coachman Estates in Barrington is now complete! The Gove Group began exclusively marketing Coachman Estates, a multi-phase subdivision, in 2013 when there were only seven homesites left in the neighborhood.
