Maine Lakefront Real Estate - Lakefront Lots at Bargain Prices! - 09/23/08 07:53 AM
Mr. Lakefront does not usually make it a practice to promote the sale of other agents listings. I have an obligation to my sellers to promote their properties. However, we do care about getting our lakefront buyer clients great deals, whoever has the listing. Occasionally, some great bargains become available for whatever the reason. I think it's a good thing to let our readership know of these terrific deals. I'm referring to lakefront building lots on beautiful Woods Pond in Bridgton.

Maine Watrefront Property - Living Green, Shopping Local - 09/18/08 03:08 PM
I was talking with a friend of mine in Portland today who publishes an annual guide to "living green" in Southern Maine. This book, called the "SunriseGuide" is chock full of great information, but the bonus is that it contains over $5000 worth of coupons that help the purchaser buy products which sustain and nurture a healthy and friendly environment. Anyone interested in living the good life in Maine, especially on a lakefront property, should take a look at this book. Once you pick it up, you can't put it down. It offers tons of helpful hints on such things as financing energy efficient (0 comments)

Maine Waterfront Property - Getting Familiar with Shoreland Zoning - 09/09/08 10:40 AM
Last week I provided a link to information that explained the rules and regulations regarding removal of vegetation on shorefront property. Because we had such a good response to that post, I thought I would offer up some more free information. The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has produced a 36 page booklet entitled "Maine Shoreland Zoning - A Handbook For Shoreland Owners". This booklet explains, in clear language and with the use of drawings and diagrams, the state's Mandatory Shoreland Zoning Act. While it is meant for informational purposes only and not to be used as a substitute for the law (0 comments)
Maine Waterfront Property - Can I Cut Down That Tree? - 09/03/08 07:43 AM
Buyers of waterfront property have many things to consider when looking for just the right property to buy. Right at the top of the list are questions concerning the land and what can and cannot be done with trees, bushes, and other vegetation that lie within the protected shoreland zone. Most people like a nice view of the water. Can trees be cleared to open up an otherwise obstructed view of the water? Can dead or diseased trees be removed even if they're in the protected zone? What about cutting existing limbs and clearing out underbrush? And what about that nice (0 comments)
