Your kids thought someone was off their rocker when you let the cat out of the bag about your relocation, move, retirement to that second home in Maine.
Why Maine? You lived in an area out of Maine that used to be safe, uncrowded. Not costing all out doors to live in day to day.
That changed so reason one for the purchase, for buying a Maine easy to care for new home happened because you wanted what you had in your area twenty years ago. That is gone, disappeared, vanished when all these people invaded.
You like Maine because the traffic is missing, the zillion people causing it and the noise, pollution, sprawl are not shoulder to shoulder populated in the Pine Tree State.
And the fewer people in Maine are friendlier, helpful, hard working and not looking for a hand out. Not our to try to impress you, or rob you when you are not looking like the neighborhood you are leaving, loading up the moving van to vamoose from.
The second reason for the move to Maine, why you bought that second ME home for retirement, relocation is how clean the state is. Lakes, rivers you can see the bottom along the shore lines. Gravel bottom, no slime, no mud, no erosion from man who when too many in number, over burdens, ruins what nature is struggling to preserve.
Cleaner natural resources in Maine, less people and the ills over population causes like having to lock your doors, worry about your personal safety, etc. That stuff you don't worry about in Maine.
And in addition to the four season outdoor recreation, the view and the friendly people that are not jammed in to tiny confines, the best part of the move, relocation, retirement in Maine was low cost ME real estate. Your new Maine house price was a quarter of the one you sold down country. Your sold the home where you lived, had money left over after paying cash, no mortgage needed on the new house in Maine.
So to recap, the move, retirement, relocation to Maine for three main big reasons. Less people here. Cleaner state, safer state. Had money left over in ME home purchase. Because putting it bluntly, you get more real estate for less in Maine. Cheap Maine real estate happens all day long. Check the ME property prices.
