Welcome to New Hampshire and
Vermont's Upper Valley.
"Simply put, most people who live in the Upper Valley area
of New Hampshire and Vermont consider themselves
to be thoroughly spoiled. The region is rich in everything you'd
ever want: small town life, lots of four-season outdoor
activities-summer's hiking trails become winter's
cross country skiing trails-a surfeit of culture, great food,
unique shopping possibilities, intellectual stimulation,
and last but not least, friendly people..."

Are you ready to buy a home in this superlative area?
Here, in a nutshell, are steps to fulfilling your dream
of buying a New Hampshire or Vermont home.
If you will be financing part of the purchase price,
talk with a lender first and find out what you can afford.
A pre approval letter from a bank will also make your
offer stronger when you find a home on which
you wish to make an offer.
When you first sit down to talk with an agent,
he/she should give you an Agency Relationship Disclosure
form and discuss representation.
Discuss your requirements with the REALTOR.
Make sure that your agent likes to LISTEN
and does not try to push you into his/her preconceived
ideas of what you should buy. You should not
discuss confidential information until you have
entered into a contractual agreement.
When you are ready to enter into a Buyer Agency agreement
with one REALTOR, that agreement means that your Buyer Agent
represents you and must honor your direction
and hold all of your information in confidence.
Your agent will send you listings that appear to
fit your requirements and set up and accompany
you to showings.
When you find a home that fits the bill,
write up the offer with your agent.
Negotiate through him or her until agreement is reached.
Arrange inspections through your agent who will help monitor them.

FOCUS ON LEBANON, NEW HAMPSHIRE
The name Lebanon comes from the biblical cedars
of ancient Lebanon, a Semitic word meaning "white"
that refers to the nearby mountain with perpetual
snows on its summit. Established in 1761, the
name for this town was probably selected by
the many early settlers who were from Lebanon,
Connecticut, including Eleazar Wheelock, founder
of Dartmouth College. Lebanon was the original
location of the Indian Charity School from which
Dartmouth is descended. In 1781, Lebanon was one
of the towns that attempted to join Vermont,
but later returned to New Hampshire.
Lebanon was incorporated as a city in 1957.

From The Town of Hartford, VT website:
The Town of Hartford is a unique and wonderful place in the great State of Vermont. It is located on the border of Vermont and New Hampshire at the intersection of Interstates 89 and 91 as well as US Routes 4 & 5. This is also the site of the confluence of the White and Connecticut Rivers. Hartford is thus a crossroad, the Gateway to Vermont for recreation and commerce alike. With excellent highway, rail, and air services, the Hartford area has long served as a hub for transportation and travel throughout New England, the Northeast, and Canada.
Hartford is in the heart of the beautiful and prosperous "Upper Valley," a region that is home to several renowned educational and medical facilities including the US Veterans Administration Hospital, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Dartmouth College and Medical School, Franklin Pierce College, Granite State College and the Community College of Vermont.
Perhaps more important is the exceptional quality of life enjoyed by area residents. The Upper Valley is comprised of numerous small towns and villages whose residents hold to community-centered, family values, enjoy freedom from crime and violence, and have ready access to excellent schools. They benefit from living in a clean environment with a multitude of outdoor recreational opportunities including boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, with some of the best skiing in New England only a short drive away.
In keeping with Vermont tradition, Hartford is composed of five distinct, historic villages, with a combined population totaling 10,200. Each village has its own history and unique character. Select from the menu below for brief descriptions of these special places.
