Without land, it would be hard to build anything to live in.
To call home sweet home. And in our small rural Northern Maine market, land is a bigger component in the real estate list, twist and sell. Than just serving as a ho hum sized lot to provide a basic front, side, rear yard. With just enough room for the improvements.
Land in Maine is not always used for housing either.
Not just for creating improvements on it for kids, families, people container single or multi family housing . No no.
91% of Maine is trees everywhere you look as you do a couple 360 degree spins.
Many forested, wooded tracts are "tree farmed", selectively cut and thinned.

To make the Maine land with hard and softwood species a V-8 high performer property acreage.
To grow just as fast and long and straight as it possible can.
Removing the overstory of big timber so the little guys underneath can tap into the sunshine overhead.

To provide the property owner of the acreage a nice tidy sum of cash. If managed right with a forestry plan hooked to the Maine land, wood lot.
The forestry timber cruise harvest done under the watchful eye of a licensed forester. A well thought out forestry plan to maximize the return on the investment in the Maine wood lot.
Land in Maine also used for recreational fun any or all of the four seasons in Maine never loses it shing or appeal either.
That kind of Maine land that if you are lucky. To find yourself parked next to water of some kind is one sweet investment.
Folks need, will get, want badly to be a neighbor with waterfrontage to unplug, recharge.
To enoy fishing, swimming, boating or just to sit back and gawk out over it.
To detach, step away from a busy day to day grind to reflect.
Ask yourself "so, how's it going?"
And then adjusting the life dials in the mental housekeeping areas of the gray matter.
Down next to your soul. Where all the really important but sometimes neglected stuff lurks, waits, molds.
Getting out from within the four walls is needed to put yourself in the place with the space like rural Maine. Nothing like wrapping yourself in a big piece of property land acreage in Maine to do just that.
