Small Town Real Estate, The Local Connection Is Strong.

By
Real Estate Agent with MOOERS REALTY ME Broker License 106759

When you list, market and sell properties in small town Maine communities the approach is simpler.

The layers of players is missing. The prices for the real estate listings are lower to the ground. Which cuts out the need or money available for home stagers, landscapers, anything extra frill that is just not in the cards in the game of buy and selling small town real estate in Maine. Fill pot holes in the driveway, wash windows, replace dead or missing light bulbs and price it to sell quickly. maine images

The connection between the people in small town communities is strong too.

There is a sense everyone needs each other, working together for the common good of the rural township or plantation.

Crime is missing, so is traffic or grid lock during rush hour. Fewer or no stop lights, people are friendlier in small Maine towns too. The road rage is missing. So are dead bolts and security systems.

Hi Andrew Mooers 

Great post.

I grew up on a Farm and we were International Harvester Red tractors people.

A little Green / Red Tractor rivalry amongst farmers...  :-)

Happy Selling!
