I am in the process of leaving the state.



No other NE state does it for me so if this one didn't do it for me, the whole thing is out. And NH is done now so..


After 1 year, I moved to FOUR places. That should not be but thats how messed up it is when you're looking for houseshares, there is extreme LOW inventory in this state as well as a lot of MA. Most people I met in "the place to be" Nashua were screwy, not really balanced individuals. And even in "the place to be", the roads seem to be going to hell.



I went to Brookline, Seabrook, Keene and then tried Nashua where I met a real psycho woman in the Sunrise apartments. She called the cops on me so now she has a whole months rent from me without me living there.


Some of you don't understand, I've had to depend on the craigslist rental market and theres some people who shouldnt be allowed to rent their places. Sex offenders, psychos, drunks.


In my experience though, I stopped in Keene for a few months. It was cute but too far and mostly a college town. I sure didn't like Seabrook as a place to live. Any place where the only supermarket is Market Basket, I never liked the town or the education rate was lower in that area. Billerica is one of those towns too, it just has Market Basket.


Lack of availability in the top places most of the time often made me go to places like Seabrook or Keene or else I never would have. Nashua/Manchester is truly where I wanted to build a life but circumstances and a lot of these people prevented me from living this life. They couldn't just be regular enough to keep a good tenant like me, and now I am sick of NH even faster..



A circumstance came where I can go to the Portland OR area so I am happy about that.. The east coast in general has old ideas, nothing trendy comes from here too when you really think about it, my long time favorite restaurants are also going downhill.


There end rant.

Gee, thanks for making your first post in the NH forum into a rant about how much you hate the state. Don't let the door hit you in the rear on your way out.

I hardly think that you can judge the merits of a state by dodgy room share situations that you found on Craigs List. But, whatever, good luck in Portland then.

Good luck. I love me my Market Basket. I drive from RI to MA for it. Nothing I've looked at nearby is anywhere near the value.

took the words out of my mind. Lets see rents crappy apartment in crappy parts of the state and is surprised by his crappy experience. NH/New England is expensive, end of story and if your looking for trendy. Northern New England isnt going to satisfy you. Portland Oregon, also a nice city, but guess what. Expensive. Good luck

My wife and I moved to Connecticut about 18 months ago to be closer to family and to take care of some personal family issues that ended up not working out as expected. I was born in Ct and left in 1998 and moved to NH in 2000. We can't wait to get out of here and back to NH. Were looking at a few more months here and then homeward bound. I miss our small town, the mountains and all we left behind....including Market Basket New Hampshire may not be for everyone and that's ok....for us it's home and I can't wait to get back....for good.

I love New Hampshire! We visited Vermont recently - so pretty and so very New England!

I will not be leaving any time soon. (Although I am also not a fan of Market Basket, but whatever. Hannaford is closer!)

Doesn't sound like you gave it much of a chance, OP. Seems that you could have saved up until you could afford to rent your own place.

We don't really have old ideas; I think we tend to have onto the old ideas that are good and we have more trendiness (if you can call it that) than a lot of other parts of the country. If you don't like Market Basket, you are more than welcome to leave though.

I'm sure Portlandia on a shoestring budget will be just as difficult, but good luck.

When you want to move somewhere knew, the only way to do it is...

1. Savings.
2. Employment
3. Housing secured
4. Move.

In that order. Anything else really lowers your chance of success and happiness.

The northwest is certainly also a nice region, but if you're having roomies that's always going to be a risk, no matter what region you're living in. It's not like there will be "better people" in the northwest than the northeast, if that's what you're thinking. If you don't know them ahead of time, it's going to be just a roll of the dice. Good luck.
