Investing in Stratham, Exeter, Brentwood areaMy wife and I are transplants from Upstate NY and have lived in Portsmouth for almost 3 years. We love the area, but we may relocate in order to be closer to family. We could remain on the Seacoast for another 12 - 24 mos, but we've outgrown our two bedroom apartment in Portsmouth. Looking around at our options, & buying a 3br single family house in the low $300s seems like an attractive option. I believe our monthly mortgage payment would be $1,600 - $1,800 / mo (principal, interest, & tax) - which is cheaper than renting a similar home. My concern is our potential time horizon for remaining in NH. Does it make sense for us to buy in NH if we may relocate? An idea I have is to keep the NH property, and rent it out if we do relocate back to NYS. Any advice or thoughts? Have any of you heard of out of state residents who are successful NH landlords? Are any of you aware of reputable property management I could work with if I were an out of state landlord?March 23 2013 - Portsmouth00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
