Maine Real Estate For Sale !

Suddenly The Familiar Real Estate Surroundings You Call Home, Where You Peddle Maine Property Changes To Colorado.

 

You are the local go to host for your on line marketing of the communities, zip codes you serve and the listings you now plant real estate signs on in Maine.

greeley colorado real estate home

But suddenly, that all changes and you are kerplopped in a new neighborhood.

Many states away like say Greeley Colorado.

 Not getting a home listing on a three bedroom Maine ranch with 50, 100 or more acres wrapping around it.

But something special on 3/4 acre perfectly landscaped lot.

 With a Southern style theme, owner custom built home to list, market, sell.

Drove to Greeley Colorado to pick up the youngest of four kids college things that his roommate stored over the summer from last year at Colorado College.

Neat place, super parents. Paul, Elliot's roommate had a gorgeous home and got me thinking if I lived outside of Maine, what type of listings would there be to market? And how would that marketing not greeley colorado homebe the same approach with a change in zip code, time zones?

Different video, new approach to the images, copy written with the local market hunger, appetite and thirst in mind.

 Not the same market as Maine.

Not the same property listing treatment either.

Have to see about a TV show about "Switching Places". With a real estate broker in Maine job for a week traded for an office slot, job assignment in Greeley Colorado. Small matter of not being licensed in that state but working as a helper under a licensed broker and ditto for the Colorado agent, broker hauled to Maine to stretch different marketing muscles. greeley colorado home

See a whole new market, ways to handle the differences.

A little more English on your real estate serve so to speak.

Naw, think I'll stay in Maine listing, marketing, selling real estate.

Something I've done, enjoyed to the hilt for three decades now.

Maine, like Colorado, different but special in their own unique ways.

Andy,

For us, perhaps a real possibility to make that change some day.  Liz's family is in Maryland.  In about 8 years I have the possibility of early retirement from the day job and relocating to be closer to her and my families.  It's a different environment there!  We have the basic tools, but it will take time to build up a new clientele there!

Some would argue same ole same ole no matter where as people are people. Properties not all that different and principles the same. But I say not every market is the same as evidenced by folks whining, dying in some areas but thriving, prospering in others. Like farming, your good year can be a supply when other areas are wiped out by drought, crop failure. Depends whose ox is getting gored and also your creativity, drive, fire in your belly passion too. L / B you may be closer to the east coast in a few years peddling to a new niche real estate audience.  Many folks dual licensed in Maine, Florida too. Move with the season. Never figured out how you could do the job half time and feel that listing in either state is neglected when you are in the different corner of the country. Maine to Florida and vice versa.

It is amazing to discover the differences in real estate markets. I've lived or worked in several different states and I'm sitting here shaking my head at the differences.

Proves real estate really is local in style, price and the way we market it.

Vickie..you are so right. This is not a typical Greeley Colorado home I am told by its owners. Would be a neat place to video with curved staircases, huge cathedral rooms, lots of angles and many features to use for eye candy, sizzle, property spark.

Norma...like people, communities, properties, real estate markets are different. We all put our unique spin on a place and no two brokers would tackle this one the same. I'm just saying.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) about 8 years ago

It is local, but there are similarities.  I would hire an agent all day long if I were buying in a market that I were not an expert in.

Interesting twist Andrew. I didn't sell real estate in Chicago but know enough about it to realize there are very few similiarities to SW Missouri real estate. Not sure I would enjoy going "back home" to be a real estate broker... The dollar amounts would be much larger in Chicago, but I think I'll stick with selling Missouri!

When I was looking into options for my mom... I called a local agent.  This is for the area I grew up in...  I'm not an agent there, and regardless of how easy it would be to get licensed in that state, it wouldn't be worth it.

Andy, so, no chance of you being on some reality show then? Colorado is pretty nice, but I am guessing you are looking forward to getting back home to beautiful Maine!

100 percent glad to be in state called vacatioland.

Great pics of your son's roomies' home. It is definitely local, but the qualities which make one a good realtor will serve one well in other locales

Andrew,

That would be a different concept; switching roles for a while. Different customs, accents, way of doing business...the list is endless.

Posted by Terry Chenier (Homelife Glenayre Realty) about 8 years ago

Andrew,

It would be really funny to switch one from Boston with one in Louisiana. You would need translators.

Posted by Terry Chenier (Homelife Glenayre Realty) about 8 years ago

You're just always thinking, aren't you? The thought of starting over in a new place is downright scary to me.

Posted by Joetta Fort, Independent Broker, Homes Denver to Boulder (The DiGiorgio Group) about 8 years ago

Andrew,

I like the way you think. 

It is so different from location to location. Not just the properties but the marketing and what's called for. 

Loved the post.

Everything changes as far as population, customs, crime, price range, and it could be like triple A to major leagues or the other way around. Or like Manny being traded, leaving Red Sox Nation to Dodgerville to ......

If part of rock polishing your real estate career and adding depth in marketing, learning the theory behind all the markets and their differences involved "doing time" in little, medium, large markets. To become a Tiger Woods with different clubs getting use, pulled out of the bag for this course, that course.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) about 8 years ago

I can't imagine what it would like going from a medium market like Beaverton / Portland to a small town with only a 1,000 people in it. You are so right the marketing would be so different than what I'm used to and though I think I would be up for the challenge, I do know it would be tough.

Posted by Respect Realty LLC, Brokers - Oregon / SW Washington Real Estate (Respect Realty LLC) about 8 years ago

Todd, it would have some of the same marketing, listing, dealing with buyers, sellers, public elements. But what is sought after for features as the top three on the list of ten is different depending on price tags, economic local conditions, community preference too. So the easy to heat aspect of a Maine property with heavy insulation, updates to windows, furnace could go on depth ears in say North Carolina if interweaved in ad copy, details about the listing. However, just termite guarded, spreayed for ticks, tested for mold might be something important there that make Mainers say termites, what termites. A termite inspector would be like the Maytag repair man in Northern Maine. Winter takes care of that varmit.

This is what I really enjoy about AR is the sharing of ideas from all over the country. I correspond with a Realtor in California who sent me the details on a new program they are using. Thanks for the post.

I can see the excitement but smaller towns I am sure you know are tought to crack....would be ALOT of work!

Posted by Tricia Houston (Lending Maven Mortgage - Denver, Colorado) about 8 years ago

As an excercise so you are not just a local yocal real estate agent, broker, REALTOR, what if you pick another state, another market for real estate and wander in as a buyer on line? You can quickly pick up that this zip code seems to command a lot more money. That the housing styles boil down to this, this and that many other nuances pop out. Plus the way the agents, brokers in that market...how the sites are designed, what is done right, what observation you make about the market players. Learning from others...it is easy to think your day to day is unique...when others in the real estate market are doing pretty much the same thing...or not. Many agents, brokers have more zeros in the listing properties than others and there is where some of the different peddling property techniques come in to play.

Andrew this is a really interesting concept - pretend 'as if' you were moving to another state and how would things be different. Vast differences from market to market. Maine to Phoenix is an entirely different ball game - and yet not!

Side note - we've been playing another game this week "if you were new in real estate' what would you do?  Or if you are not in real estate how would you view X or X?  We've been coming up with some pretty interesting ideas!
