I'd have to check the kwh. Our bill is usually over $175 per month. We did get a break from Comcast on the CATV for the power outage. My wife called and gave them hell (word to the wise: do not get a red-headed Irish woman mad at you.....)

I'd want to know why they want the inspection in the spring. I would want it right now. Depending on your type of home. Lots of us are having ice dam damages on our roofs and you will find homes with water damage. Although spring might also reveal flood damage.

Good luck.

My guess is that there is nobody living in the house, and there hasn't been in 2+ years.

That means that all the water is shut off. No heat, no sinks, toilet, etc to test.

If they were to turn it all on for the inspection, they's have to leave it on until closing, if it were to happen, and maybe that would be a PITA?

I don't know. I just got tickets out there for March 4-17, so I 'll spend a bit of time in NH, as well as in Plymouth and the house in question.

I guess you have to decide what you want. I am in NH and in the White Mountains and yes it is beautiful but in the winter it can be hell. I don't need that much land...I am jonzing big time for sidewalks, coffee shops and urban living...soon I will move. One persons hell is another persons utopia

I would suggest you see the house or you may be buying the money pit for real!

Motoracer51 I am also looking at property in NH. Since I don't live in the area I have been looking at property on Google Earth and Virutal Earth. It has been very helpful. You can check out the surrounding area and see if there is anything you need to check out. Like a dump close by or anything that may make the property undesirable.

Yeah, well if it were up to me, I'd stay put here in Colorado, and enjoy my 52degree days like today.

But that's not the case, and NH does have a lot to offer, especially since we plan on having kids in the next year or so.

I also live in Florida, and I can honestly tell you that weather isn't enough to make me live or not live in a certain place. I guess what I'm trying to say is warm weather doesn't equate to happiness.

Hey, thanks. I've also been using maps.live.com to scope places out. We've spent quite a bit of time in Keene, Rindge, Weare, Manchester, Concord, Sutton, and of course Plymouth.

Where are you coming from, and what exactly are you looking for?

Motoracer51 I am coming from Kentucky. Moved here a little over 2 years ago and this place just isn't for me. I am looking for a place to do a lot of outdoor activities. I miss cross country skiing. I have been looking on line at houses from Rindge to Laconia. I think I want to stay just southwest of Concord as I would like to get a part time job and need a little civilization for that. I am headed to NH next month to look at houses.

Yeah, I know what you are saying about Kentucky. We looked at some land in and around Ashland. We decided it just wasn't for us, and it was still too far from family in NY.

NH is the only state I'd live in on the east coast.

Default its a buyers market

hold their feet to the fire + see what breaks loose, on concessions and, improvements needed etc. If you are truly a fish nibbling their line they'll yank! there are not too many fish out there!

Well I am hoping I can swing a deal on a house there in NH so that I can come back here and sell mine here in Kentucky. If I get a good price on one in NH I can come down in price on mine here and GET THE H OUT OF HERE!
