Hopefully, they will avoid building too much near the airport because that is an important weather observation station in a rural natural setting.
Well obviously you haven't been around to see what homes are for sale in Berlin. They are run down. I'm talking about land out in Milan going up for sale soon, yes around the airport. My friends uncle and his father owns just about that entire mountain in the back and almost all the land along the riverside and up in the Dummer area. He has been using it for farmland and is looking to subdivide it. People will needs homes to live in and if you look at whats for sale in Berlin, you wouldn't want to buy it either. Plus all the land going up for sale will be on the same road that the prison will be on so they will only have a 5 or 10 minute drive to work. During winter months, that's not a bad thing to have such a short commute. Oh and in Milan, your required to have a minimum of 3 acres to build on so yes, a lot of land will need to be opened up.

I'm looking for some multifamilies in Lancaster and Northumberland. I will actually be up that way on Wed, So this sounds good? Anyone have any suggestions or ideas on what to look out for or any good deals? My hope is to buy a multifam, (3 or 4 unit) and rent it out. Earthangel, do you know the area well?

Thanks,

Yes, I have been through that town twice when I was driving through northern New England. I do agree that a lot of the homes for sale are fairly run down. The town definitely has some very old houses, but also some interesting architecture in some areas as well. I am not surprised that they have a 3 acre lot size minimum in Milan. I will have to see the changes myself the next time I take a drive up there. It sounds like quite a bit of development near the airport, which would lead me to believe that the low temperatures there might start reading warmer because of all the urban related development. The Androscroggin River Valley has some excellent scenery in my opinion.

If you look at an atlas or do a mapquest search you will find that Lancaster and Northumberland are at least a 30-45 minute drive from Berlin. This is a fairly long distance to drive, especially during the winter season. Lancaster is county seat and has around 3500 people. I think that Northumberland is a smaller community. Lancaster is one of the most economically vibrant towns in Coos County, and has a higher median household income than most of the other towns in the area.

My sister lives in Berlin and drives to Lancaster hospital for work everyday. It takes her about 35 minutes but yeah, during the storms, i'd give about an hour at least.

I don't think Milan is going to bust open with communities and things you see in other cities especially having the 3 acre minimum. The taxes are much lower in Milan than in Berlin which is why people will flock there instead of staying in Berlin. $4000 in taxes on a $150,000 home is quite a bit in my opinion.

I would say those property taxes are very high for a town of that size. I do know that property taxes are higher in most areas of NH compared with other states, though. I am currently looking to relocate near the Manchester and Concord area. Near the Kansas City metro area the property taxes run about $2500 on a $250,000 home. However, the income taxes and sales taxes make up for the lower property tax bill.

Northumberland is run down. Nice people in the town but very run down. They still have a mill there for how long who knows but it is a mill town.

Default Why Pick on Nevada?

If I had my way, we would move everyone out of Nevada and make the whole state a prison and get rid of the prisons in all other states.
Like NH, Nevada, has no state income tax and has tried its best to maintain the creeping fungus of government run social programs. Hope it stays that way!
