You may have heard about this report created by the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD) on the news or read other articles ranking NH#1 in best overall performance when comparing quality of life indicators with all 50 states. The most important indicators are as follows:
1. Health 2. Safety 3. Housing 4. Access to broadband 5. Civic engagement 6. Education
This has lead me to believe that we have been underestimating our little State in quality of life and perhaps taking it for granted a bit. Obviously we are doing something right. Of course as a Realtor I was most interested that they gave NH a PERFECT 10 for housing. Again I think housing opportunities have been taken for granted and overlooked as well.
Now it is loud and clear that NH is a great place to live. Most people living here don't need a report to tell them that but it is reassuring when a report supports it; especially one that compares us to the rest of the nation. It's certainly something to smile about as you throw on a sweater, head up to the apple orchards or take your boat off the lake this weekend!
