The current single family housing market provides a wide range of opportunities from the affordable to the luxurious.  This is particularly the case at present as there are many single family housing options soon to be made available by a shift amongst senior home owners who are planning to sell their homes and move into new, modern senior living communities here in Keene.

"There is a robust surge of positive energy in the real estate market in Keene , New Hampshire.  Having come out of the economic downturn nearly 10 years ago, Keene is experiencing strong activity, buyers are entering the market and home sellers are realizing gains again.  Having grown up in Keene, leaving and then returning to raise a family, I fully understand the draw to this community.  There is a perfect balance of people moving to area, relocating, young buyers, retirees that keeps Keene’s well-oiled real estate engine moving.  Good employment opportunities, vibrant arts & entertainment and strong educational offerings make Keene the 'heart of New England'.  The strong real estate market in the area in 2018 suggests this positive review will continue for years to come."
