portland maine: Spring into the East End! - 03/14/14 01:27 AM

You may not believe me, but spring is coming. With spring means warmer weather, and more activities. Wouldn't it be nice to walk along the Eastern Promenade without having to trudge through snow and slush? The time is coming!
If you're thinking of relocating to a more central part of Portland, the East End is a great place to look. Live close enough to the Old Port without dealing with the hustle and bustle that comes with such a central location. 2014 is off to a fantastic start for buying and selling homes, especially in Maine. If you are looking … (0 comments)

portland maine: Portland Maine real estate 1st Quarter Housing Update - 05/16/11 12:55 AM
As the markets continue to chug along here in Maine.. residential real estate in Portland Maine posted some average results for the 1st quarter of 2011 as a total of 102 homes and condos sold compared with 136 a year prior and thus representing a volume drop of 25%. Despite the slackening demand.. perhaps largely attributed to the harsh and snowy winter we endured.. median prices statistically jumped 8% from 206K in 2010 to 222K this previous quarter. Going forward I suspect we shall see some very strong figures as April has been extremely busy and it seems this will continue … (1 comments)

portland maine: October Portland Maine Real Estate - Are the right choices being made in today's Market? - 11/03/10 06:57 AM
In the month of October the Portland Maine Real Estate market saw 34 condos and homes sell. These numbers reflect a 15% decrease from last month and a 31% decrease from last year. Does house hunting decrease with the temperature? Looking at the pricing this past month, the median prices of Portland Maine real estate surprisingly rose 5% compared to last October; This increase can possibly be attributed to a lower number of first time home buyers in the Portland Maine area at lower pice points. To add to these market reports this past month showed that the average home sat on the market for 83 days, a … (0 comments)

portland maine: Portland Maine rental Market - 07/15/09 02:04 AM
Most of my posts center around the Maine real estate markets in Portland, but I thought I would give a brief overview of the Portland Maine rental market in this post.  Generally I find the best place to locate rentals is still on Craigs List, but there are a few companies such as Schneider Property Management, Port Property, CT Management and Dirigo that all offer rental finding services.  If you google them, they should be very easy to find. 
The first choice one needs to make is do you want to be on the peninsula ie Portlands' East End or West … (0 comments)

portland maine: Portland Maine - Deering - 11/20/08 12:12 AM
The real estate in Portland Maine's Deering neighborhood is some of the finest in the area.  A suburb of Portland yet still within the Portland city limits, the sense of community is strong, the neighborhoods are quiet and thus the quality of life is strong.  Currently there are 70 properties on the market, about 2/3rds homes and a 1/3 condos.  The average asking price is 300K for a single family and 197K for a condo.

portland maine: Portland Maine - Back Cove - 11/14/08 01:13 AM
One of the greatest natural resources Portland Maine has to offer is the Back Cove.  Walking/Running on the wonderful 3.5 mile trail that snakes around this tidal body of water just north of downtown is a great way to spend an hour.  Scenic vistas of the city, smells of the ocean, people watching galore.  As a result the Portland Maine Back Cove real estate market offers wonderful homes in spectacular, quiet neighborhoods.  Portland ME homes with a view will run you 400K plus but a 3 bedroom cape within 1/2 a mile of the Back cove that needs a little TLC … (0 comments)
