Why people buy land in Maine? 

The need to own land is as old as dirt itself. No really. The ground under your feet, some acreage to grow food to feed your family. To sell the excess for others not farming to put meals on the table. 

No farmer, no food is a sobering statement to graze on and digest.

By the land in Maine for the remote off grid woods camp up in the Great North woods.

Ever thought of buying Maine land to just get away from people and closer to wildlife? Hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and ATV four wheeling recreation is fun and so easy because Maine has one incredible trail system.

Why else besides hobby farming or planting seeds or tending pasture field fences to keep the livestock in would you need land in Maine?

For the lifestyle, like horsing around and playing with the ponies. Kids growing up competing in horse and pony shows. Or raising dogs on a kennel mean land in Maine. Space for the endeavor. 

So land in Maine.

Can be for pleasure, vacation use or for a living. But there are way more reasons the desire to own Maine land is so strong inside a person. It is an investment, it is space.

Plenty of elbow room for multi generation use on the family land in Maine.

Why else besides hobby farming, the space for recreation, the land investment return?

Because underneath all is the land. It does not disappear but does require good stewardship care of the fertile soil acreage and wood lot timber stands.  Land when it is in Maine means four season vacation use is one big bonus.

The location is everything and from the little getaway cabin you can explore and discover the way life should be.

Why else, why land in Maine? For some many reasons, others just one primary goal achieved by owning some Maine land. The land represents a future place to build for piece of mind.

Like an insurance policy if where they live now gets unbearable or too crowded, too expensive there is the Maine land to use. 

You create family memories on your Maine land. Some don't like money in the bank and fear what if there was a run and suddenly your savings are wiped out, gone.

To get away from people.

That is one of the biggest reasons I hear on a daily basis about the need to own land in Maine. 

Here if you need land, a house, a waterfront cottage, a woods camp, a business property or any other type, price or special location Maine real estate listing.
