Maine Real Estate For Sale !


If You Were Thinking Retirement, Relocation To Maine, What Would Be The Carrot, Motivator?

Retirement, relocation in Maine, to anywhere. What would make you pick an area, trip your trigger to pin the tail on this or that zip code?

maine lake deck photo I have heard from many relocating, retirement Maine real estate buyers over the last thirty one years.

It's not just the money, lower cost Maine real estate property alone that drives the passion to get here.

It's not even the 4th lowest crime ranking in the country although over and over folks on the other end of the phone, email correspondence are some kind of glad to hear we don't have gangs.

Don't have over population, don't have metal detectors in our schools.

And those Maine schools are not factory size big or prison like sprawling secure either.

But small and down home cozy, local and community based where the entire village helps raise your kids. Where the local people are respectful of other's property, feelings and viewpoints. Hardworking and family based proud, connected. 

So the decision to move to Maine is often based on the lower cost of living.

Maine is 46th lowest for FSSR (foreclosure, short sale, repossession related real estate sales.)

Maine car insurance is pretty low cost when the vehicle is not ever stolen. Where fewer cars and no traffic means less fender benders. When you live in an area of work for a living. Not sue for one with games about my back hurts when there is no whip maine bull mooselash involved just because a Walmart shopping car rolls in to your car while waiting for your wife to come out with an armful of blue light special results shopping.

Moving for retirement, for relocation to Maine is caused because of our local societal values, for outdoor four season sporting, recreational options.

For clean natural resources that have not been messed up by man due to over population or lack of respect from missing good stewardship thinking.

Mainers leave our property to our kids in better shape than we got it thinking.

And the fact we are a good jaunt north, up here in the right hand corner of the country means it will be preserved.

Maybe we are insulated from the things folks in the city are unhappy about, moving away from. Maybe it is better health care professionals that drives folks to want to retire, relocate, move to Maine where air is cleaner, skies and water bluer too.

Have had it argued when asked the question what is Hell. From a movie, past philosophers, people, too many of them can be Hell on Earth. That expression does not apply to Maine, the way life should be.

I love the way you stepped out of the usual way to encourage a buyer to consider one's area...a nice script, indeed.

Maine is gorgous. In fact, Camden Maine is perhaps the most lovely town in the Northeast. Cost of living is good. Winter weather? I'd have to get out 3 months a year.

S2P2 ... Thank you. Not hard when I am a personal fan of Maine, not just a job to promote, help out the tourism arm of the state.

Vickie ... Maine is so many things and the sea coast is just one of the sparkling facets on the gem called Vacationland. Maine winter, now there is a myth. We don't hibernate, sit on a couch with a channel changer held high in one hand, the other in a bowl of cheesos. This video shows a Maine winter is one of four bar harbor maineseaons and like the other three, we want to be, need to be outdoors.

Andrew - I can say that I have visited Maine and it is one of the most beautiful and pristine states in the US - I love all the outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking, bird and animal watching and snowshoeing. Not surprised it ranks the 4th lowest in crime!

The virtues of Maine are definitely many and you are probably the best spokesperson. Here is to Maine and Andy!

I understand that Mane does not have any poisonous snakes, that would be a selling point for me, maybe as a summer home, cold and I do not get along!

If you're cold, you're not dressed right.
