Buying A Home and A Community – Portsmouth NH Homes

 

Peeking In on Portsmouth NH Home - Ann Cummings 2009 NH REALTOR 

I had a client say to me the other day that they’re not just buying a home in Portsmouth, they’re buying into the Portsmouth community as well.  And that part of what they’re buying is very important to them.

If you’re thinking about buying a home in Portsmouth NH, or any other community, you’re buying into whatever that community has to offer.  That’s part of what you’re paying for.  You could take the basic 4 walls of any house, and plop them down in a variety of communities, and that 4-walled box will have a different value in each community.  Part of what goes into the value of each community is what that community has to offer.

 

And here’s what Portsmouth New Hampshire has to offer those who call Portsmouth home:

  • we have a fabulous downtown area, loads of shops, galleries, restaurants, museums, and more
  • we have a beautiful waterfront park, Prescott Park, where we can watch plays, hear concerts, take part in a variety of festivals, art shows, and more
  • we have Saturday morning Farmer’s Markets from May through November where you get all kinds of locally grown produce and locally made products, and meet old and new friends
  • we have a gorgeous huge new library with all kinds of programs open to all residents
  • we have great schools, 3 elementary schools, a middle school and a newly renovated and expanded high school
  • we have beautiful churches throughout the town, many with historic roots
  • we have lovely parks scattered all around town and have been awarded a “Tree City USA Award
  • we have a wide variety of homes in Portsmouth, choices in styles, ages and price ranges to suit everyone
  • we’re right here on the Atlantic Ocean and the Piscataqua River – awesome waterfront and a working port
  • we have a fascinating outdoor living history museum – Strawbery Banke.
  • we have loads of history all around us here, so if you love history, you’ll feel right at home
  • we have THE best seafood ever
  • we have loads of things to do in and around the Portsmouth NH area
  • we have great city festivals and fairs
  • we have super friendly residents who love living here and will help you learn all about Portsmouth NH living
  • we are in a super location for commuters – easy access to highways going north, south and west
  • we’re only an hour or so from great winter ski areas
  • we have lots of fun antique stores in the area
  • we have a great walking town to call home – sidewalks in most places with friendly neighbors calling out greetings as you pass by
  • we have glorious springs, spectacular falls, fun-filled summers, and winters that can bring snowy winter scenes

Portsmouth NH Home Buyers – Credit Tips You Should Know

Buying Portsmouth NH real estate??  Important Credit Score Info You Should Know….

credit-card-pile

If you’re thinking about buying real estate in the Portsmouth NH and Maine Seacoast areas, here are some important things to know about credit scores and how that impacts your ability to obtain a home mortgage.

Your credit score is more important today than ever before, and if you’ve got a good credit score, you want to do everything you can to protect that good score.

Credit scores are a good indicator of how likely a person is to pay off their debts on time.  The more likely your credit history shows this to be, the better the mortgage program will be that you qualify for.  The higher your credit score, the better you look to mortgage companies and banks.

Credit scores range from 350 to 850, and the higher your score, the
lower the risk you pose.

This is how credit scores are categorized:


  • Reason for Great Concern –  620 and under
  • Excellent Score –  760 and higher (this number has been increased to closer to 800)
  • Good Score 720 – 760
  • Average Score –  680 – 720
  • Reason for Concern –  620 – 680

Foreclosure Homes in Portsmouth NH Area

Thinking about buying foreclosure bank-owned homes in NH?


house-in-foreclosure

Foreclosure homes are all the rage now for buyers currently looking to take advantage of today’s real estate market, with everyone thinking they’re getting a bargain.  And that’s the case here in the Portsmouth NH homes area as well.

Sure, some really are a bargain and don’t need as much work as others do.  Because foreclosed or bank-owned homes are priced the way they are, those prices are one of the driving forces in today’s real estate market when determining the proper price of privately-owned homes.

Oftentimes, when you compare a foreclosure home that has been let go and has been deteriorating because no one’s been there to care for it with a privately-owned home that has been properly cared for, you can see that regular homes present some great opportunities for home buyers in the Portsmouth NH area as well.
