Lots of questions roll around in their head of real estate out of town property buyers with anxious thoughts about what should I be doing to prepare in the relocation, moving to Maine.

How do I find out about all the local information, the contact numbers, the best route to take to save time, money, aggravation. Local insider tips from someone who lives and knows their way around the community from years of experience is a valuable thing. But not if it is only shared when a real estate buyer or seller darkens the agency door. 

One of the blog post considerations in the round robin of what to share is always asking myself a question or two. What would I need to know if I was not from this area? If I did have any frame of reference or a local relative or other resource to tap into the information? I like to think of the folks using our media production products as travelers and not just tourists. Although the interest to relocate, move to Maine usually starts with a simple vacation. And then year after year returning to Maine to continue the tradition or exploring to discover all the wonder of Vacationland.

Once you are certain this area where I live now is too crowded or unsafe or the home I own was great when there were a lots of kids living here. But your real estate needs change. The size of the home, the feature list of what is important don’t stay the same as what is the best housing solution for you TODAY.

Once you make the decision to move, it is to where that enters the thought process.

If you are retiring and need to stretch that fixed income check that arrives monthly in the mailbox or direct deposit into your bank account, it is a math exercise. To get the most for your home buying dollar. To not buy something needing lots of expensive repairs and renovations. But that ending up with a home that is where you want to be. Sure you will have to paint lots of the rooms, update a few areas in the bathroom and kitchen and wander around the yard puttering to tidy up the landscaping.mainephotoslider38
