What is your local real estate market all about...just a bunch of property listings and pretty much like any other GPS coordinate on the planet? NOOOooo.The area you list, market, sell real estate is so much more than the sticks and bricks, the properties you carefully put on line for the world to see. Where the property is means their is a local community flavor. Ever had someone from far away who has never been to your home town ask you "what is your area like?" Real estate is fixed, does not move and where it is usually comes first in a real estate buyer's mind than what it is.
So as a local real estate agent, broker, REALTOR to answer the question what is your area like, you should be involved in those local community events. So you can relay everything about the area, to experience all that is unique and special about where you live, work and play.
One local event that is family based, competitive and shows how many folks come our to support a youth event, is the Maine soap box derby program.
This past weekend, a little water did not dampen the spirits of the Maine boys and girls who climbed in and out of derby race cars to learn the thrill of the hill.Watch a local derby race and see if this does not give you an idea of what the Northern Maine area is all about.
If you were a family relocating to Houlton Maine, you would wonder about how are my kids going to do?
