The average income for the location tends to be about $60,000 and the area’s median home price rings in around $190,000 for homes for sale, which is still markedly below the median home price for the state at $238,000.
Sitting a mid-point between Andover and Concord, NH, Boscawen is generally seen as its own small town but also as a bedroom community for those commuting to the bigger urban areas for work, particularly Manchester to the south. However, Boscawen real estate offers more than just a place to live and sleep. Boscawen can provide its residents a chance to live in a location deep in history. Some of the town’s structures date back to the early start of the country, for example.

In terms of schools, the town's children have a choice of two schools to go to, either Canterbury Elementary School located in Canterbury to the east and which is rated very high and goes to the 5th grade or Webster Elementary School which is also rated high and located a short drive to the west. Both factors make Boscawen real estate interesting for buyers with families.
