The perfect time to buy Maine Waterfront

Real Estate Agent with The Maine Real Estate Network

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 are more likely to drop their price in an effort to grab that late season buyer.

So get out there and look! Schedule a full day of showings and get a jump on next year. Next spring you can be preparing for your own summer of fun.

David, great timing with this post.  I was just thinking the same thing for our market here in Seattle.  Fall is a great time for buyers to get a nice discount on waterfront.  Sellers are motivated to get that home sold before the winter lull.
