 Home sale prices and median home prices both rose in June compared to the same month in 2014. That’s according to a new housing report from RE/MAX INTEGRA New England and another from the New Hampshire Association of Realtors. 

NHAR president Maxine Goodhue says while overall home inventory is up as well, the market still slightly favors buyers, judging by the length of time it takes to sell a home. 

“The ones that really present well and are desirable are selling very quickly,” Goodhue says. “The ones that are more unique are sitting a little bit longer.”

In addition to the strong sales figures, there’s positive news on foreclosures; the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority says the number of foreclosure deeds have declined to levels not seen in nearly a decade.
