Simply a Great Place

We know it's a great place, but if you don't want to take our word for it—see what others have been saying about Goffstown!


In an article printed in Fiddlehead magazine Tom Long and Stacy Milbouer talk about Goffstown and the many things it has to offer.

Goffstown Village looks more like a mountain hamlet than a suburb of Manchester. The block-long shopping district surrounding the 19th-century, Queen-Annestyle Congregational church has coffee shops, galleries and boutiques as well as a 21st-century general store tucked in a bend of the Piscataquog River in the twin shadows of the Uncanoonuc Mountains.

But it’s so much more than quaint. Day by day it’s morphing into a cozy, cultural cool place to shop, graze and gather.

On August 16th, 2019 the New Hampshire Union Leader published a follow up story to the Realtor.com release of the 10 hottest neighborhoods in America.

After searching through 16,000 zip codes across the United States, last month Realtor. com announced Goffstown’s 03045 as one of year’s top ten 10 hottest neighborhoods in America when it comes to home sales.

The article noted recent median home prices in Goffstown were at $325,050. This figure is approximately $6,000 more than the national average, but well below the $589,900 median home price for the Boston metro area. Additionally, homes in Goffstown stayed on the market for an average of 22 days, well below the national median of 56 days after initial listing.
