When searching for a new home, you want to ensure that home prices in that area are appreciating, but you also need to ensure that the home prices will fit within you budget. AreaVibes used science and data to create a list of the best cities in New Hampshire to buy a new home with a population over 5,000 people.

The cities listed above have been chosen as the best places to buy a new home in New Hampshire as they have seen high appreciation rates combined with a solid income to home price affordability ratio.
