(Buzzer BBBZZZzzzzzzzzzz sound) All real estate markets are not the same and there is a major difference on how the big city and small rural ones behave.
What is important to the city mouse is vastly different like the size of the price tags for his country cousin.
In urban markets the list of gotta have before you slide the house, condo, co-operative on the market is not a carbon copy match for the rural real estate market.
The cost for the properties swing wildly nose bleed high in one city market, to the extreme the other way close to the ground in small rural real estate markets.
Security is big and always a concern in the city. Not even a concern in the smaller rural real estate market. Where doors are not locked, the keys left in the vehicles in the huge yard.
Space is at a premium in the city landscape for the real estate listings that dot the streets and that are super close together. Where zero lot lines makes you wonder why have windows on the sides if all you see if the up close grain of the home siding that is razor thin close.
In the small rural local real estate market, wide open fresh air and clean water space is all around the listings.
Acreage not inches or feet are used to describe the landscape. Large prison like privacy fences are not needed when you don't have a neighbor on any side. There is not a strangle hold of zoning regulations or heavy permitting either in small rural Maine towns to maneuver around in the local community real estate ordinances. That put your housing addition or building project on hold and can cause the blood to boil hot hot hot.
