Hampton is one of six seaside towns that dot New Hampshire's 13 miles of coastline and the second southern most Seacoast town in the state. Residents enjoy easy access to major transportation routes including I-95 and Route 101. Similar to many New Hampshire towns, housing options in Hampton range from 19th century farmhouses (take a drive down Mill Road) to modern day sprawling developments that include everything from modest capes to contemporary colonials.
Separate from the town of Hampton is the Hampton Beach Village Precinct. Known for it's scenic beach and boardwalk, Hampton Beach attracts tourists from all over the country during the summer months. The summer tourist season culminates each year in early September during the Seafood Festival, which features delicious food options from more 50 of the Seacoast's top restaurants.
Hampton has one of the largest populations along the Seacoast and homes are relatively affordable when compared to some of its neighboring towns to the north such as North Hampton, Rye and New Castle. Hampton homes sold, on average, for $429,504 in 2017 and according to 2010 Census data there are approximately 7,000 households in the town. Depending on proximity to the beach and whether or not you want to live in a neighborhood development or along a road, prices will vary.
