New Hampshire continues to see slow but steady growth in its housing market. 

 The quarterly report from the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority says home prices rose by 3.3 percent over the past year as the number of sales grew and overall housing inventory fell.  Analysts cite an improved job market and continued low interest rates have boosted the real estate sector.  But the report also found New Hampshire and New England housing markets are growing more slowly than the national rate.  And it says median household income figures show consumers have lost some of the buying power they had before the great recession.
