maine: Walking Land in the Fall - Safety First - 10/21/11 03:07 AM

Autumn...A great time of year to look at large parcels of vacant land. Trees are golden and red, crisp breeze and no insects and the remaining greenery is still lush.
This 36 acre parcel of land in Baldwin, Maine, listed at $89,900 is one of those types of parcels. However an unsuspecting danger lurks. Walking the land, twigs crack, leaves rustle and the sound of someone walking the woods can sound very much like wildlife.
Know your hunting seasons for the various game, types of seasons, bow hunting, muzzle loader, firearm and youth seasons. Wear blaze orange, bring your compass … (0 comments)

maine: The perfect time to buy Maine Waterfront - 10/08/10 03:47 AM
Fall - the tourists are gone, as are the thoughts of the beach.
However this is the perfect time to look at Maine waterfront properties especially on lakes and ponds throughout Maine.
During the summer months, rental cottages often limit showings to Saturdays during the key exchange period and scheduling showings during the week can be hit or miss as to not interfere with BBQ's and other summerime fun.
In the fall it's another story. Many cottages and homes might see limited use on weekends or are being winterized and sellers are often feeling a little end of season desperation and … (1 comments)

maine: Never too early to think about Maine waterfront!! - 05/26/10 03:48 AM
Maine's recovery is well on the way especially in the southern areas of the state. We have seen significant increases in purchases of primary residences as well as second homes and waterfront properties are starting to sell once again after a somewhat stagnant 2009 season.
With interest rates at near record low points and property values that seem to have bottomed out and started to increase slightly in some areas -now it is the perfect time to think about waterfront homes - either year round residences or as seasonal second homes.
If you are thinking about waterfront here in Maine - … (0 comments)

maine: Portland Maine is the Most Livable City - Forbes magazine - 04/03/09 01:41 AM
Here in Portland, Maine we all know why we love living here.
Portland is a great metropolitan area with great access to the arts, entertainment, outdoor living and even in the recent economic downturn the Portland area has remained generally stable as far as economic opportunities. The Greater Portland metropolitan area is the center for jobs and commuting from other areas is relatively easy compared to other larger cities.
Recently I was showing houses and condos to visitors from Washington D.C. and they could not believe how easy it was to get around even at "rush hour". From Portland's Old Port area you … (2 comments)
