NH unemployment rate drops to 4.9%

By
Real Estate Agent with Brin Realty Amherst & Bedford Offices

With much applause we welcomed this reduction in the New Hampshire unemployment rate.

NH's unemployment rate has held well below the national average during the downturn. 

Gov. John Lynch released a statement calling April's unemployment rate "tremendous news for our workers, our businesses and our state . . . as we continue to lead the nation in economic recovery."

"The reason New Hampshire is outperforming virtually every other state is because we have a successful economic strategy in place," Lynch said.

As the jobs situation improves and home buyers feel more confident about their job security, this is translating into more home sales for New Hampshire.

Buyers need to jump in and take advantage of the great home prices and opportunities while these interest rates are still low.

Hi Rene, what great news for your great state of NH.  I wish the other states would follow your state's financial strategy since it is showing positive results.  Have a great day!

I think that's about half of what Californi's unemployment rate is, maybe more. I was unemployed for six months until a few weeks ago.

Barbara, The light has a soft glow...

Laura,  My Dad always laughed and said New Jersey was downhill from here!

Rob, We are on the mend, slow and steady.

Thanks Judith, NH has not been impacted in terms of jobs as badly as the rest of the nation...real estate seems like it has though.

Eric, We're delighted you joined Russel and are getting to know you, congrats.
