New Hampshire is making a name for itself and businesses are moving to the Granite State every day. We try to keep up with developments on economic growth to share with you, such as Manchester’s mark in the med-tech field and why our state attracts companies of all industries and sizes. The state and its communities are responding, investing in the expansion of Interstate 93, pursuing a wider federal trade zone service area to benefit businesses, and working to keep Manchester-Boston Regional Airport competitive. While housing costs rise in neighboring Massachusetts, it’s a great time for a move to New Hampshire.
First thing to consider is employment. If you’d like to work in New Hampshire, you’ll likely have your pick of jobs. The state’s unemployment rate is consistently below national average, and new businesses mean new jobs. Our strong economy is a great reason to think about making New Hampshire your home.
Companies doing business in New Hampshire get some great tax breaks, and so do you! There is no sales or personal income tax in our state. That’s why so many of our neighbors across state lines shop in New Hampshire. Why visit when you can make tax-free a way of life?
Have you heard of the “New Hampshire Advantage”? It’s not just about the taxes and economy. It’s everything about living in New Hampshire — access to the lakes and mountains to the north, beaches to the east, and access to nature’s beauty in every direction in between. Think summer days on the coast and breathtaking views of the foliage when the leaves change come fall. Spend weekends hiking, visiting covered bridges and historical sites. Imagine skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling aren’t just for vacations, but for a few hours after school and work because the slopes and trails are so close to home!
One of the best things about our small state is the blend of urban and rural that seems to come so easily. Culture and eclectic cuisine don’t have to be sacrificed when you choose to live in New Hampshire. Towns like Hooksett, Bedford, and Merrimack are great for families who want the best of both worlds. If you’d rather not feel too far removed from what a city has to offer, Manchester awaits.
