OP is just fetishizing our quaint life, the usual

OP is asking some questions, and shared her situation. Nothing wrong with that.

OP, I love Southern NH (Monadnock Region). Gorgeous part of the state, access to things we need within a reasonable drive, good neighbors. I also like the area around Salisbury, Boscawen, Warner, Webster. GL with the search.

OP is cavalier with disregarding anything but confirming information, which I take the most issue with but candidly I would also like to tone down the influx into NH.

I would also love a significant tax on home/land purchases for anyone who hasn't been a primary resident for at least 5 years.

No, you don't want new residents and you'll look for things to pick at because of that. I mean, own your shit, man.

I like tourists, I understand the role they play in our economy, I just don't like them moving here, reducing available housing, and pricing out the locals.

You do realize the tourists are buying up properties and renting them out as airbnbs when they don't use them right?

I do, and I'm against that. I believe in owner occupancy for STRs

Yeah, we stopped being tourists when we invested our hard earned dough into a home, taxes, supporting businesses, and being good neighbors.

I'd rather that you hadn't. Own your shit, to quote you, and understand the adverse impact you created on young people in our state.


YBMExile t1_jc6neuo wrote

You're making a lot of assumptions.


FlyingLemurs76 t1_jc6nly5 wrote

I disagree, the pricing out of locals is a well studied, understood, and documented phenomenon.

And new residents are a very convenient bogeyman, it feels better, and is much, much easier for you to pin everything on them.


FlyingLemurs76 t1_jc6l81m wrote

It's both, but it gave me something to latch onto. I feel I am owning my shit.

You're welcome, I think you're just looking for external validation for a path you want to be right because of issues of your personal life leading to disregarding any comments that contrast to your idealized version of NH. How you communicate in that, combined with your comments on other postson this specific topic, led me to that statement. Good luck.
