Easy, Easy, Relax You're In Maine Now. Slow Down, Take A Deep Breath, Just Sit There Until Your Head Clears.

    

"Life has been a blur and is picking up speed."

That is the common theme, sentiment statement I hear maine lake scene,me waterfrontfrom many of our down country real estate buyers. The sense of exhaustion, worrying about a gazillion things is the side effect of living where the pace is way way too fast. The conveyor belt called life with these bone weary real estate buyers is increasing in grade and speed.

     And I have had many phone callers, emailers indicating worry about when it will all snap, come undone. And doubt the guy and gal on the other end can hold it together much longer. These are not folks that arenecessarily loosing their homes. Or that are upside down financially. But they are getting tired treading water, keeping their head above that water. Wondering out loud in calls and emails of why keep doing day to day where they live now if its not safe, expensive, no fun any longer.

     This segment reads from the same script. "Where I live now is not the neat little town it was eleven years ago when my husband and I landed here" is what one Pennsylvania buyer told me this past Saturday morning on the phone. Her husband is a hunter, and with more and more population, that sport is being infringed on. More rules, beefed up zoning, becoming a more expensive place to live. That is a common theme uttered by many considering Maine, as a low cost alternative with all the things they have lost but cherished where they live now in a growing population center. They want some place with friendlier people, less population and low or no crime.

   maine moose, me wildlife Concern from exasperated callers who worry about their kids and the large schools they attend. Schools with german shepherds roaming the halls, full time police officers but called "resource personnel" right in the schools. To protect the teachers. Try to control the student population or learn what they can from the inside about gangs, etc. That is not Houlton Maine which is in Aroostook County where crime statistics are half the state average of 4th lowest in the nation.

     We "lock" our front doors with high security bread and button knives, wedged in to keep the wind from blowing those doors open. Everyone has jumper cables in their vehicle and stop when a idle car is along the road side that might be needing help.

     We call the shut in older lady down the street to offer a ride to the grocery store. Or to just check in on her. We follow the local basket ball, hockey,football soccer, baseball, tennis teams around the circuit. We know our neighbors, like them, trust them.

    

Bean suppers where politicians in Washington DC could benefit if they sat down with a plateful of home made food. And just listened to good old, tried and tested common sense. The logic is real and in touch from the heart of down to earth, hard working tax payers.

     If you are not happy where you are living now, think about what is going to change in your area. If over population, crime, expense of living there is on the increase, move. If you worry about keeping up with the traffic, long commute to work and back each day, consider a place where you can walk to work. Where your backyard is 200 acres and larger. And you grow your own food. Know where it comes from. What is in it. Your neighbors are not nosy but there if you need them. And you have a sense of space, peace. All at a pace you can relax, breath easy in as you fill your lungs with clean Maine air. maine harbor,me lobster boats

     Are you like many of my callers, emailers that just are fed up with where you live now..mainly because of all these people surrounding you where you live now? You and I need to talk. Soon.

Nice post Andrew. Totally captures the home town living of ME. Anyone I hear of looking for property in ME I will send your way. Geeze, like I mentioned before I visit often. What the heck is the motto? I read it all the time. Something like this "A Great Place to Visit - A Great Place to Stay"? Think it is time I headed back.

Andy, I am heading to Maine this weekend, I think it is Guilford, not quite sure. I am only along for the ride. I am sure I will enjoy it!

Great post Andy, you always make me want to move there right away!

Thanks Lisa...we have plenty of "seats" for a few more folks to spread out. Have had many Rhode Island buyers over the years that felt the same squeeze in personal space, cost of living, crime. Have many slogans to try to sum it up. Maine, the way life should be. Maine, your heart is already here..been here for some time now. Help the rest of your major organs catch up is one I thought was funny late at night but probably not going to make it on to an interstate sign. Maine, get here just as quick as you can.
