The office phone or cell rings and the Maine real estate buyer provides the top ten list of what he or she wants.
Their dream for a relocation, retirement, or just some recreational real estate in Maine property investment.
In the course of the conversation, the emails fired back and forth before an actual office visit happens with the out of town, not in Maine or the USA real estate buyer, common themes emerge.
The high crime, traffic, insincerity, expensive living in other outside areas make Maine pretty darn attractive.
Our listings in Maine cost less. You can find yourself on a Maine farm, a lake and that might not be possible where properties are just too high priced.
It makes me appreciate living in Maine more. Because it is not this four season beautiful everywhere else. Not everyone is surrounded by such friendly neighbors, famly and friends.
Small town Maine living is special. Less people, more wildlife, less regulations, more freedom to live your life without interference.
Sometimes when the buyer from New Jersey is going on and on venting, ranting about the traffic, how much time and money is wasted in trying to improve the quality of life, I say whoa. The conversation can get bogged down.
The unhappy living there outside Maine buyer wants to ramble about what is wrong with their location. That used to be great when they purchased property, a home years ago. But nine times out of ten, the ills that ruined it is population caused. Just too many people. No longer a neat, picturesque, quaint small town. Ran out of space, which jacked the price of everything with any sky high. That made having some of your own pretty precious and few. Hard to obtain without a major wallet, large purse.A snarky blue blood last name.
