In small town rural Maine, instead of single family homes, apartment houses, we sell tons of horse, hobby farms, just recreational land or waterfront cabins, cottages too.Many times everything is homes, houses, residences in some major real estate markets. Glad to be able to peddle everything from a mom and pop grocery stores, commercial buildings, waterfront cottages, just land or hobby / horse farm properties too.
Keeps it varied, interesting as a general practioner Maine real estate broker. A buffet of property types offered and not just four walls with a roof and homes here.
Growing up on a Maine potato farm, it is especially enjoyable to help a ME real estate buyer who wants some land, to raise crops or critters to be able to own a property to do just that. Or a hobby Maine farm to putter but not set the world on fire for a full blown living. Many of the amateur, hobby farmers are semi retired, have an income to subsidize the life style.
But finding a Maine property on a lake, river and if just land with water frontage, working within the shoreland zoning guidelines, coordinating the builder, craftsman involved in the construction is an enjoyable process.
