Locally, home sales also began 2017 "with a bang" with 4 southern NH towns, including Atkinson, Hampstead, Salem & Windham, average selling price of a single-family home up 29%, on average, from the same time frame as last year*. Although unit sales are down 21%, on average, this speaks to recent news of a shortage of housing inventory and, as a result, an increase in home sale prices.
