Maine Real Estate For Sale !


The Perks Beyond A Slice Of The Real Estate Commission Pie. You Smoke?

The listings in Maine are scattered around a pretty large surface area.

The properties for sale in Maine are not bunched tightly, crowded in. Heck Northern Maine is only 11 souls per square mile. The southern portion bumped up to 44 in the same patch of dirt.honduran cigars photo

But what would you do for a slice of that Maine real estate property commission pie?

If someone said jump, how high would you? How do you feel about long road trips for work, no pleasure? Stuck in the same car for a very long part of your real estate day. Neglecting your backyard to explore other new ones.

With new foreign colors, styles, agency names of odd shape real estate signs. Speared into the ground or tacked on trees, sides of structures.

To bravely go where you have no idea of how things roll among the real estate listings.

Where anything is and the roadways all seem foreign. Klingon names from another galaxy or star system. Even with GPS hooked in on the dash. Because where I live every country lane, back roadway has at least three names. Depending on the map, who you talk to, ask for directions when lost. The namesfor the locations you are on the hunt for as a new to the area agent. Are subject to whatever local you bump into. That they were taught for a label or handle from their grandfather, etc.

Basically, how far would you go to get some compensation in the match making, show and tell of a Maine property listing sales?

The area you can logistically service geographically is way smaller than the one you reach out and try to connect with World wide in advertising.

More contained inventory than the no holds barred marketing of what you have listed. that is torpedoed. Broadcast. Out into the wild blue yonder that is fair game to market to in the dog and pony of list, market, sell (repeat).

Andrew, kudos to you for navigating tricky Maine territory! And for helping clients new to the area do the same.

Suzanne ... I did not do it. I practice in my 50 mile radius. It's the guy from 300 miles away with travel time, gas, frustration of being out of his element for a split on a $30,000 or lower property. Whoa. Not worth the wear and tear but agents do it. A couple boxes of cigars, a t shirt would not entice me to travel because busy enough where I hang my real estate shingle. And I don't smoke, don't intend to learn how to lick, cut, light cigars of any nationality or origin. But I have heard a Cuban is an experience. (Cough, hack, sputter) Excuse me.

Hi Andrew.  Honduran over Cuban cigars.  Say it isn't so.

Good morning Andy. As I read your posts, it sure is obvious to me that you represent your clients and Maine very well.

CA .... Smoke cigars? I don't but those who do are in the know on which is best. Like anything right?

JP ... We try, don't forget who we are working for, with, and the goal of what everyone wants to accomplish!

Good luck and success.

Great post, Andrew.  A GPS is still no substitute for local knowledge.

GPS can always get you into trouble if you rely on it too heavily.  Knowing your area and your market is a wise decision!

LL ... See the goal in the cross hairs. Keep it in those cross hairs.

Gabe ... The right direction is key.

ME ... Familiar, local, involved, having history and just knowing the local area like the back of your hand. Priceless. As the tour guide to get to a closing. Lots of them.

Great post Andrew...we have huge counties here in Virginia that surround my target market but I focus on a tighter radius rather than servicing all.
