Making Your Home Easy To Heat, Nice And Warm.

Keeping it cool or making it warm, the two extremes for the Maine home owner who wants to save money no matter which direction the thermostat points.

Maine has four seasons and air conditioning is not a big need like it would be in the hot hot sunny south with humidity or even with dry hot of the southwest.

But here comes winter in Maine ready or not.maine snow sled groomer winter weather photo

And so many myths about our winter weather in Maine.

More on the true picture of the climate, weather, temperatures in Maine.

We don't live in areas near one of the cold poles on the top or bottom of the globe.

We are 19 degrees average winter temperature and not 80 below zero as some outside of Maine who never set foot here would lead you to believe.

And our frugal natures means we all just strive to find ways to make it easier to heat our homes in Maine to save money.

So the house in Maine that needs tightening up to keep everyone inside nice and warm. Toasty, happy, and no one sees their breath when they rise and shine. Or through the day and house plants thrive like the family animals.

If you are the owner of say an old Maine farm house, and happen to own a wood lot, the amount of fuel you chew up over the course of winter is not so critical.

You saw up 10 cords, have another of the same amount all cut, stacked and under cover in the machine shed or barn, under a tarp or in the wood shed. Ready to begin the ritual of feeding the central heating source from the wood furnace in the cellar.

Maine winter not so big a deal.

And to help the furnace with a stick or two put into the antique kitchen wood stove, it's all good. Or the one I use, a 404 Jotul kitchen wood stove that is small but mighty.

How drafty, how air tight the Maine farm house is suddenly is not so important. When your renewable heat source is an unlimited supply of wood for heating the floorplan adequately.

Land In Maine For Sale.

Land in Maine for sale.

The small rural real estate markets list and sell more than houses, just homes. Lots of land in all sizes are listed for sale in the Maine real estate buffet of current properties available. For folks that the timing is right to make the purchase of land in Maine.eagle in land in maine nest photo

But unlike buying a house, land is a more difficult animal to tame.

To get financing for a piece of land requires larger down payments, higher interest rates from the lenders used to packaging up a house loan and selling it on the secondary mortgage market.

That's why owner financing is a great vehicle to use to buy land in Maine for sale and providing terms that custom fit the buyer and seller.

More on why owner financing land in Maine works so well and fills the void that banks create with the higher cost obstacles. Banks don't get to sell the land mortgages on the secondary market and have to hang onto the paper. As interest rates rise, they are stuck with lower return mortgage notes.

The owner financed Maine land provides a nice annuity for the seller of the land and often times the seller does not need to replace the property. So they can wait for the sale's price divided into the monthly installments.

Maine REALTOR State Convention At Sunday River In Newry ME

The Maine REALTOR State Convention for real estate professionals wrapping up. Held this year, 2016, at Sunday River in Newry, near Bethel.

This ski resort in Maine high in the hills and not quickly accessed off an Inetrstate 95 corridor exit creates a different atmosphere for learning and networking about listing, marketing, selling property listings. Than the other venues used in rotation for state REALTOR conventions like the Samoset in Rockport or Bar Harbor or Portland Maine. maine fall colors photo

Here is the MAR "Take It To The Peak" schedule of events for the 2016 REALTOR Sunday River multi day razzle dazzle.

There are 5201 REALTORS in Maine this year but only about ten percent of those wearing the blue and gold "R" pin and paying the dues for their local regions attend these yearly gatherings. Obtaining continuing educational credits for the two year Maine real estate license renewal is easy by attending these yearly conventions.

Learning about what buyers and sellers today need and want is critical for survival. Because like every other industry, reinventing how we do what we do is necessary to avoid extinction. And to make sure every Maine REALTOR is tuned up and dialed in to being at the top of their game. In this sport some call an addiction, a jealous master.

As I slurp on a black, fresh coffee this morning, I reflect on past Maine REALTOR conventions.

And think about over 5200 state members, what those community real estate agents, brokers and card carrying REALTORS can do to improve Maine from the local level. Because Maine is a vast, rural, sparsely populated state and face with huge challenges to keep our children from being exported to meet "financial objectives" and career goals.

Streamlining and consolidation to avoid duplication of resources and forward thinking, leadership to re-tool the small Maine towns that are full of pride, rich history but struggling with today's homework assignment. Worried about tomorrow and what needs to be implemented today, maybe a few years back that is causing us to veer off the correct path.

Internet connectivity to me is the most important to lure out of state, country new citizens to come into the 450 plus small Maine towns, the handful of cities in Vacationland.

What Went Wrong |The Post Mortem Of A Real Estate Sale.

Real estate listings that don't make it to the property closing happen for lots of reasons.

Failed attempts to actually close on a sale despite the best efforts. Why causes a real estate sale to fail? Sometimes caused by man, other times by circumstances that become just too great to keep the sale going. maine rafting like real estate ups downs photo

There comes a time when pulling up the white sheet and toe tagging a real estate sale has to happen.

So the efforts to sell are not just bogged down with a sale kept alive only by artificial means. The quicker the red flags are seen, counted up and decisions made to change directions, the better for the buyer and seller in the long run.

We like to be positive and showcase the right steps to take along the way. But sometimes what to avoid seems to be taken more serious. So nothing gets glossed over.

Nothing is made to look so easy that the blog post reader figures ninety nine percent of real estate listings become property sales with big bold SOLD's riders topping the lawn signs out front. 

So who has a part in the success or failure of the real estate sale? Starting with the seller. What mistakes do real estate sellers make? It starts at the listing and how the property is priced.

The MLS Real Estate Transfer Of Property Listing Information.

The MLS Maine real estate transfer of property listing information, the mechanics are similiar.

But the substance of what is relayed and how is not. Like jewels, not everyone shines the same. Like people, there are distinct differences. Something blaring, other times more subtle. cows mooers maine farm photo

And some of the property listings herded down the MLS real estate pipeline just did not get the treatment needed to make a true transfer of what this one, that one is really all about.

For starters, when a listing in a zero lot line, Home Owner Association tightly reined home on the west coast is listed. And on the other side of the country, a farm home with lots of land, bordering the waterfront, in a smallcountry town without restrictive zoning layers is listed.

Both are so not a like, the approach to trying to show and tell just how to the online real estate property listing buyer could not be more different. Peas and carrots not apples and apples.

Has to be because the real estate buyers for each property are too.

The yes, no, maybe and number fields for the rooms, bedroom, baths and square footage of the inside living space can only take it so fast in the mass transfer of information.

The MLS has to be streamlined and efficient. But the narrative space to really drill down into just what this property listing is all about, and to spell out the condition, the local community surrounding it, does not get in the spotlight pool.

That's why the images have to reinforce and pitch in to show the true picture. The copy space that is afforded has to have clear, efficient language the audience can hook into and glean. Not full of real estate jargon, titles, initials that only someone in the industry would recognize.

Houlton Maine Motel Rooms, Cabins, Camps, Rentals.

You are after a motel room, a place to stay in Houlton Maine, in Southern Aroostook County.

But look, wait, something is missing. Where are all the familiar chains for a place to lay your head, to get off the highway for some shut eye. Didn't anyone offer to leave the light on for you?houlton maine places to stay photo

Houlton Maine, a place on the map at the beginning of Interstate 95 and at the cross roads of US Rt 1, 2, 2A.

But this blog post is designed to help you see the options for your stay no matter how long in Houlton Maine.

Houlton Maine is not a crowded area with too many people or lots of traffic or crime. That's a good thing.

But with those elements missing, with just less folks needing the motel room it means less choices in places to stay for motel rooms, a cabin for the night or place to park your camper trailer.

Other things too drop off in supply because there is not the high demand. We are a little ways off the beaten path.

In large population center, there are lots of motel rooms, places to stay and that's just the expectation when you are in a hurry. It is what you are used to in large urban areas where eight out of ten people live.

Motel rooms pop up everywhere online, in tourist information center lodging hand outs.

But in small rural Maine towns and the handful of cities in an underpopulated state, good luck. Not much shows up for motels, lodging options and the price you pay is not going to get much help if any from your Priceline, Expedia and other dot coms designed to negotiate the rate down.

So you are traveling to Aroostook County, and what about Houlton Maine places to stay, motels, cabins, lodging?

You have options for motels, rooms in Houlton Maine. The Shiretown Inn and Suites is one Houlton Maine motel room option. Just off the Exit 302 of Interstate 95.

Homes For Rent In Houlton Maine, Aroostook County.

So you are looking for, tracking anything that moves that resembles a home to rent in Houlton Maine.

They don't grow on trees and there is a reason. Homes for rent don't make money for the owner. So when that happens, long term rentals that don't pay the bills make a sale the most important goal. boy and the boot houlton maine photo

But renting the home in Houlton Maine can be a viable option when the seller is out of the area, needs anything to help the wallet or purse to carry the overhead of the property for sale.

It can be a mutal situation where a renter does not want long term and the seller can still have the home marketed for sale.

To not miss out on a real estate sale of the house he or she needs to replace somewhere else. Or to just have it sold because no longer used because the property owner has gone into an apartment, assisted living or off to the great beyond.

The reason for the shortage of homes to rent in Houlton Maine is the low to the ground price tags of houses for sale in the Shiretown of Aroostook County.

More on renting vs owning a Maine home in a small rural market. Everything you know about real estate property prices in larger markets which eight our of ten are, divide by three and four. Same with cost of property insurance due to being the 4th lower crime state for misdeeds. The income is less too but you won't need to make so much to live in Northern Maine where everything is cheaper.

FACT: In Houlton Maine, the surrounding small towns and platantions, you can buy a quality home and the monthly payment is less than market rent.

Sure the new property owner has maintenance to provide, the cost of insurance, property taxes but it still is worth it. If the credit allows the renter to be a buyer of a home sweet home.

The Feel And Flavor Of The Real Estate Listing In Maine.

There is an expression among Maine farmers, the one about "like people, soils are different".

Well, like people, their property listings, the real estate where they call home is never the same either. Because of lots of factors.crystalballsold

We are not talking staging, where a place is painted in certain trendy shades of colors or furniture is aranged just so.

We see places, homes in Maine where everything seems to be picked up and orderly.

But something is still missing.

The heart and soul of a property, a home that is enjoyed and lived in.

You can tell as you drive in the yard or walk under the front or side or rear doorway about the vibes a place radiates. Partially because of the potential home buyer's preferences and sometimes harder to explain. To put your finger on.

The criteria that a Maine home buyer has to select the "one" is varied and depends on the size of the housing budget, the needs of the folks under the roof and inside those four walls too.

If a mother in law needing a first floor bedroom is on board, then houses without the place to lay your head without going up and down a set of difficult stairs is the order of the day.

If no mother in law, that all goes away. Something else moves up the real estate buyer's priority list of what they need in the present day to satisfy the housing need.

One More Reason The Real Estate Sales Failed.

As a Maine real estate professional, our office does everything humanly possible to get the listing to the very long closing table.

The reason for all our dog and pony is to get to the real estate closing for the property listing transfer. That needs to happen as quickly, easily and the least costly way possible for both buyers and sellers of real estate. clockhoultonmaine

Time is money in a property sale and it is not a pretend play game for kids.

The costs associated with real estate sales hit the wallet or purse hard too.

Have to be paid whether a sale happens or not. Ouch!

So blog posts, videos on pricing, marketing the real estate is so important have been hunt and pecked on this channel.

Lots of blog posts on what can go wrong in real estate listing, selling and how to see the red flags, avoid the quicksand too.

But one topic is often overlooked in another leading cause of a real estate sale derailment. Making the transfer like a house of cards.

Possession of the premises, the property by a tenant, an owner that just won't go. Says they will, knows they won't.

Sometimes because of seller's remorse. Not just buyer's have remorse and develop cold feet don't ya know. Tenants can be a family member which is even worse.

The Day Of The Real Estate Closing, Tips To Make It A Success.

The all important day of days, the one where a real estate closing takes place.

Or will hopefully because they can be planned, pushed ahead, derailed indefinitely. But like any procedure, there are tried and tested methods to increase the odds of a real estate closing day staying alive. Not dying on the conference room table. crystalballsold

First and foremost, people care about themselves.

Have manners and for a spell of time care about you too as long as nothing interferes with number one who comes first.

They make plans, don't want their life on hold too long.

So the longer a real estate sale drags on, the chances of it failing rise rapidly.

Warm and friendly turns to cold and snarky.

The meters and dials need monitoring and what to expect is discussed before it happens and anyone was left in the dark.

There is a Maine expression, probably from some crusty guy or gal living on the coast that goes something like this. "It is hard telling without knowing".

Translation, "you don't see quick sand, red flags waving without the lights on." Communication is critical and to be as assurate as possible it must be current, pertinent, is time sensitive big time.

Selling Your Home, What To Remember For Property Owners?

Getting into the mind of the seller of a real estate property listing in Maine.
 
The focus inside the head, behind the eyes, between the ears is centered on lots of areas. First and foremost is the pricing of the real estate about to hop onto the MLS conveyor belt. I can hear a seller hollering "I'm not going to give it away" now.houltonmainetownphoto
 
But if the price tag figure is way out of whack, from the rest inthe pack.
 
Forget getting front row seats to a property closing anytime soon.
 
Overpriced property does not sell.
 
Property not marketed and priced too high does not sell. Like two nails in the coffin that work together to undermine a listing sale.
The higher the price the thinner the real estate buyers. That is one problem with over pricing a property listing in Maine.
 
And when a buyer does an online search, they slice and dice with perimeters to filter the responses.
 
To whittle it down to what they can afford from what is available for current real estate listings in the inventory.
 
And leave the rest for others if the price is too rich for their blood.
When you are the seller of a piece of real estate in Maine you also have to study your reason for selling.
 
The motivation to sell and what kind of time table you have for achieving the results you need. If a real estate closing is very important that it happen pronto and yearly property taxes are piling up, a tax lien about to mature.
 
Then "poof", there goes the property ownership title to it, then the correct pricing becomes even more essential on a piece of real estate on the market to sell.

Innocent Real Estate Scenarios That Turn Ugly.

There is a Maine saying that can apply to real estate property sales.

"It is hard telling without knowing". Information that is missing causes confusion, jumping to the wrong conclusion. Which leads to missteps that put things more out of kilter, out of whack. andymooers1

Or real estate market information that is outdated is just as bad.

Because not having current, accurate data means garbage in, garbage out.

So misunderstandings in real estate property sales, in life often are caused by missing, wrong or just plain outdated information.

The vital stuff needed to help shape the direction from listing, through marketing to the clear to close memo for the sit down and let's dig in.

To have a real estate closing that concludes the transactions and make a successful transfer of ownership. 

So innocent real estate situations that are spun, come off as someone was black heart sinister.

Folks stop getting along. Working toward the same common goal. The problems start with a fertile imagination, a lack of all the accurate fine points as the real estate deal trudges on through the hoops, chutes and ladders that shape the deal. To a satisfactory conclusion or derailment. 

Good broker, bad broker is another layer of the reaction to what seems to be happening. When nothing could be futher from the truth. Sides are drawn like a court room and "my buyer" "my seller" and fighting for the upper hand is a hostile approach.

Where mediation not litigation keeps the wheels of the real estate deal greased for the easiest momentum. Like a flywheel, energy is needed to keep the gears of a property listing sale moving as effortlessly as possible.

How The Real Estate Buyer Feels When The Property Owner Starts Giving Away Personal Items.

The buyer for a Maine real estate listing has been located through marketing, realistic pricing and the satisfaction because it works.real estate brochure ad1

It fits the needs of the buyer of the property.

But here is a little devil in the details that can creep up and put out the fire of desire that burns within to get to the real estate closing and make the successful property transfer happen.

The personal property, what is inside the real estate listing in Maine.

What about the case of a camp, cottage or second home, an estate that is not empty of personal property?

What can happen to make the real estate sale go sideways?

Giving away what was stated would stay in the property listing.

That letting go of items to the next door neighbor, your brother in law Bob.

The buyer of the property who revists the pending listing for measuring the windows for curtains starts to sense the evaporation.

Of stuff, the extras he or she may not need but that suddenly feels like someone is stealing them. Even if they don't quite own the property yet, the buyer starts to act like they do.

Is getting used to the idea of being the new property owner as the process to buy through the banks, appraisal, legal channels is put through it paces.

Communication, spelling out what stays or goes is critical. The antique light in the dining room that is going to be kept should be removed before the buyer tours the sticks and bricks.

When Is The Best Time To List Maine Real Estate?

The time to list a Maine real estate property for sale, when is it best to do that?

To get the place on the market for the World to see and consider seriously you hope. mtkatahdinphoto

When you have decided you need to make a change, no longer need a property or can not buy another until the last one you own is sold.

That's the best time to list a property for sale in Maine.

Real estate sells year round in Maine. But not if no one knows about the property listing.

So no matter what calendar month we are in hanging on the wall, it is a good time to list. And when you think property buyer, remember that just because you a seller might not want to move in the winter, does not mean buyers are on the same wavelength.

And it takes time to sell, even after you list. Less delay if the property listing is priced realistically and market full throttle.

Houlton Maine | Aroostook County Shiretown

Houlton Maine is the Shiretown or County seat for Aroostook.

Maine's largest of the sixteen counties is Aroostook. And from the days of the first settlers arriving in 1807, lumbering, farming have been two big reasons to live here. houltonmaine2

Outdoor beauty of four seasons living with clean water, fresh air and not over population  continue the tradition of providing very good reasons to live in or at least visit and vacation in Houlton Maine.

In this border town with Woodstock New Brunswick to the east in the province of New Brunswick Canada, Houlton has connections that stretch deep beyond the International boundary line.

The Maliseet Indians helped the new settlers on both sides of the Maine, Canadian border too. Without them, a lot of lost settlers might never have dug in and prospered. And put Houlton Maine on the map. Maine was part of Massachusetts until 1820 when the independent state was formed.

Tall timber stands, rich fertile soil, rivers to fuel a town's needs in early Maine town creation. When the wood lots were cut and cleared to create fields all helped the town of Houlton Maine grow.

So did the railroad that extended from Canada over twenty years before the Bangor and Aroostook train tracks were put into place. The B and A railroad helped open up the Houlton Maine exports to the America markets.

So did the Interstate 95 highway system designed to be the Eisenhower route to move military armaments quickly to and fro. With Lend Lease in World War War II when local Houlton Maine farmers hooked on with tractors.

USDA Loans, Buying Maine Homes.

Like most things in the World today, the list of options for buying a Maine home is pretty much endless too.

And it is not always the real estate property buyer picking the best mortgage loan for the home but the other way around. hero the maine cat a home photo

Because life circumstances like divorce, lay offs, medical down time spent in the break down lane all take their toll. Knock you down and keep you there.

On home loan eligibility success, the ability today to buy or not when you have your heart set on getting under a roof, inside four walls.

The options to buy a Maine home can tighten up and a VA, Maine State Housing loan is one option.

The USDA rural home loan to buy a Maine home is another neat mortgage lending product.

How does the single family USDA RD home loan in Maine work?

Basic Qualifying Information for USDA Loans:

Credit score at or above 620. There can be some exceptions but it might take a little wrenching, looking under the credit hood to repair your credit. To get you bankable and polished up to remove the hard edges that keep you renting, not buying a Maine home.

It all starts with pulling a credit report which once a year in Maine is free. Give them your social security number and watch the machine whirl, purr, spit out the results.

Then peeking at what shows up on that snap shot of you today on paper and chasing down mistakes. That haunt you, follow you and keep you from getting the house keys to a new Maine home.

Real Estate In Maine | A Friend Of A Friend Of A Friend Situation.

The calls, emails, postal snail mail, texts and office visit lobby questions that come up on the topic of real estate in Maine.

We get some real eye opening doozies. And often the person asking them is in one major hurry and does not want anything but a quick here and now perfect answer to hit and run with thank you very much. birds nest home in maine photo

Jack or Jill does not want to be pressed for more information about the real estate involved situation that the question asks warrants for follow up ones right back at them.

And the person with the friend of a friend of a friend often got some of the details or their take for advice in the situation a little mixed up or out of order.

Besides just not having all the facts of the real estate in Maine situation. That prompted the shout out to this Maine broker on this receiving end of the signal.

Patience is a virtue but also a luxury in today's hurry scurry world.

Figuring out the who, what and where in a real estate situation when it is a friend of a friend of a friend can cause hot under the collar to happen. Knowing just enough to be dangerous.

But missing the part of about not always, it depends on this when that happens or is the current problem that affects the rest of the property listing or sale.

The person asking what would I do in a situation like this one is not so cranked when I need to have a little more of the details to give the best answer.

Texting Real Estate For Sale In Maine Information

Texting real estate for sale in Maine information, it is one of many ways MOOERS REALTY gets the word out instantly.

Having kids, staying in touch with them with texting got me in shape for fast paced micro typing.   motorola droid 3

Working as a news director in a broadcast media outlet with on air deadlines also helped push the typing proficiency.

With no time to waste diddling around when it was show time to report the news as it happened in the broadcast market place.

Texting real estate information and answers to questions makes it instant, up to date and no delays with text messaging.

No more 9-5 limited waiting around. Real estate buyers looking for local area or property listing information don't want delays. They should not have to kill time or chase down the information on a property listing.

Texting is one more powerful communication tool of many in the real estate marketing arsenal.

I will admit that the screen touch cell phone virtual key boards are not my favorite weapon to reach for but when in a pinch, hand it over.

Heck a tin can and string or carrier pigeon, smoke signals will work if it's all you got or the other end of the signal prefers it. Pick your poison right? Whatever delivery system works best for the buyer or seller. Not moi.

A slide out cell phone with the raised numbers and letters on the keyboard is my tool of choice.

For two thumb back and forth firing off answers to rock responses to text messages on real estate that we receive in a steady stream.
