maine summer camps and cottages for sale: Why Maine Lakefront Property is a Good Long Term Investment - 05/25/10 05:20 AM
Back in 2003 I met with an elderly gentleman who purchased his lakefront camp (or what folks from Massachusetts call a "cottage"), back in 1962. He was a former IBM salesman - a pretty big deal in the 1960s.
He purchased his Sebago Lake summer home for $12,000. Now 41 years later he was selling. Although lovingly maintaining the home for 40 years, he had made no major repairs, improvements or expansion to the humble structure. We listed the home for $549,900 and it sold for $529,900.
I asked him what he thought of his investment. He told me that he … (0 comments)
