Where did you end up moving? We're relocating to S. NH soon too.

What do you mean by "not as clean"? In terms of urban planning?
Nashua was on the list of best cities to live in America. People who live in the middle of nowhere up north like to pretend that Nashua is a crime ridden cesspool. Well, it is compared to a village of 2000, 30 min away from the nearest grocery store. Maybe you heard this from them? Because of the opioid crisis, any town/city you are looking into in S. NH will have that blight.
Um, as someone that moved to the greater Nashua area four years ago, and left left last week, that distinction was awarded in 1987 and 1997. Nashua's problem is they're still preparing for Y2K.

I suggest you find a largish apartment near your employer in Woburn and stay there for a year or so to give you time to research places to live.

I have lived in Londonderry for over 30 years and commuted to downtown Boston for most of them. Fortunately most of the time I was taking the bus. The automobile commute between southern NH and Woburn is just plain impossible. The traffic is very, very heavy, slow and irrational. IIRC Woburn does not have a bus or train (no train at all from SNH to anywhere) service.

Although the taxes in Massachusetts may be more than NH the aggravation and cost of commuting can make up for a lot of that money. Take your time and get the facts before you spend a lot of money on a house in the wrong place.

When we were considering moving to NH a few years ago, I compared overall tax burden for MA and NH. It was about the same, with some better services in MA. That said, we ended up in SW NH because it is much less congested and far prettier.
