Both New Hampshire Homesand Maine Homesare forecast to rise in value during 2011according to HousingPredictor.com. Maine is expected to do slightly better. HousingPredictor.com wrote: "Healthy employment, fewer foreclosures and distressed properties are producing a better housing market in Maine as the state recovers from the real estate crash and financial crisis. Maine ranks in the five lowest states in terms of foreclosed properties." In fact, they predict Portland, ME to be the top market in the country this year. New Hampshire will fare well also according to HousingPredictor.com: "Stoked by better employment than in most other areas of the country and record international exports, the New Hampshire economy is eyeing the New Year with an optimism not seen in many areas of the U.S. Thats not to say the state is out of the woods yet in the financial crisis, but its driving a recovery in housing markets." All in all, it looks like the White Mountains and Western Maine will see a turnaround this year if HousingPredictor.com is on the money.
