One of the biggest requests for information from relocating, out of town real estate home buyers is schools. Tell me about schools in the Houlton Maine area.

The education of our children is everything to a parent who knows how important the schooling is to build the self sufficient, contributing citizen of tomorrow. Just like their parents did with them, teaching them life skills and more than reading, arithmetic. So schools in  the Houlton Maine. houlton maine images

Information about schools in the Houlton Maine area, beyond just what is offered in the county seat is popular with online real estate home buyers. Who don't automatically know about the individual school administrations in this sprawled out area called Northern Maine.

Other popular local searches is for jobs in Houlton Maine. And the all important places to stay, motels in Houlton Maine. One problem with the motel search when a relocating family is searching out the area for more than just homes for sale is national brands.

Houlton Maine is a small town like most of the communities in the vast state of Maine that is under populated.

Things rock and roll differently than in a big urban population center. So when the search for a Price line or Expedia, whoever portal you hop onto to get a deal it does not reveal national hotel chains. And here comes the whoops. Heading across the border because the surfer booked a room at the Best Western in New Brunswick Canada not in Houlton Maine can happen. local houlton maine hocky team photo

Hope you have your passport but heading across the border into Canada from Houlton Maine is not that big a hassle.

Come on, hop in, will show you a border crossing routine because it happens lots when you live and are related to folks on both sides of the international boundary.

Had two boys who played hockey and Canadian teams are the best opponents to become a better hockey player. Made lots of cross border trips into the land of the red maple leaf for hockey and for down hill skiing.

We are lucky to enjoy the strong dollar, weak loonie and take advantage of the back and forth across the border.

What people look for besides and before the homes for sale, the real estate listings in Houlton Maine. Information, boatloads of local information about the local community they are relocating, investing, retiring to in Maine is very important stuff.

The area schools in the Houlton Maine area are changing too.

Because of less money funneled back from the state, because of duplication of what is offered only a few miles apart in school systems that are feeling the pinch.

Small Maine town taxpayers can only survive so large a property tax increase before that's it. Packing up, moving south. That's why small Maine towns are so territorial on shopping local, using home town service and product providers. I see it in bank lending, title services and resist hooking up with what I call gypsies, that are nice enough folks but have not sticks and bricks in the local community economy. They employ no one in my area, don't pay property taxes, don't have "skin in the game" so to speak. houlton maine kissing student photo

So back to the schools in the Houlton Maine area, there are lots of quality teachers working hard.

Where it is more than a job and taken very personal to help shape the minds of our young.

And outside school, area employers, lessons at home are part of the education that every child needs to learn responsibility.

Picking potatoes, helping area farmers creates a paycheck for many youth. It is true that the entire village raises it's young in small Maine towns. Learn more about simple living in Maine. We try to stock the shelves on all the topics that someone new to the area, that is relocating, retiring, investing in Maine real estate would want to have answered in a helpful post.
