Maine is rural and the property listings that are off grid, lacking year round access can develop an illness.
For real estate resale, the mostly recreational properties that are for getaway fun have a distinct role or purpose.
But when the Maine real estate owner starts to add more and more improvements, a tipping point can happen in the resale value.
The lack of juice wired to the place, easy or year round access missing can come with the territory.
When attracting a low cost Maine real estate property seeker. Wanting to be unplugged, off the beaten path.
But easy does it. Keep it simple, cheap and don't create a Frankenstein property listing. One that the buyer scratches his head. Beyond the simple cabin in the woods.
Becoming more and more Maine home like.
But still no foundation, property heating, ventilation, etc. Lacking other features the Maine home buyer expects as a given. That a camp property lacks by nature. As the simple camp tries to move up into a home category. If it walks like a duck, well you know. What is it? Or trying to be?
