We do a lot of shopping in life and property listings for sale are part of the cake walk experiences. One by one checking out what is new on the real estate market. Lamenting once in awhile the ones that got away. Listings sold before you the Maine home buyer were in gear to move forward, pull the trigger. To step up to the property buying plate. Timing is everything and the needs of the Maine home buyer change as the clock ticks by. What would have worked twenty years or minutes ago suddenly does not anymore. Things shift.  Stuff happens. Read full article on the right size, fit in real estate. The price can be right Bob but if the property listing does not snap together like the just so shaped puzzle piece. If it is not glass slipper perfect. Suck it up. Move along. That Maine real es...

More than one flavor of dish, people want and need more choices in real estate, in life. Blog posts on a variety of subjects to keep it anything but bland or uninteresting work best. Color is always a topic that garnishes strong opinions, from personal preferences. Does color of your house, does it really affect the real estate home sale? In Maine the frost is easing out of the ground. Doors shut a little differently or not at all or stick tightly. There is an anxiousness to hose down the house, clean up the yard but not yet. Still a little early as spring snow skiing, the best sled trail riding is underway. Along with the maple syrup sap collection. Don't pull the plug on Maine real estate listing marketing plug in the winter. Not everything we do in Maine property sales is home and ho...

If it was just Maine houses, land, property home listings we shuffled from A to B, the real estate day to day would be a cinch. But add the wrinkle of all the people. That crowd in. Own, buy, are involved in the pylons obstacle slalom getting to that sit down meeting. Pushing, shuffling, in a hurry and less than cordial at times. For the passing, signing, writer's cramp session. Before the it's all rise. Everyone pops up, reaches for their coat and vacates the conference room. After shaking hands, one last story in the pleasantries. And the real estate professional heads out to list, twist, sell again. Less than perfect credit buying a Maine home is something the "loan arranger" helps with efficiently. And the marketing imagery, write ups is what we capture. Title issues on the real est...

The puzzle pieces of a real estate sale, the behind the scenes work before touring property listings. It takes some time spent in the "tell me about your area" mode. Questions about what is important to the real estate buyer at whatever season in their life. Fear and love, health too fuel much of the push for changes in life. Concerns for their children, safety is a big motivator to get moving to Maine too. Buyers of Maine real estate listings have lists of wants, don't need. To use in the shopping for a real estate listing in an area. That will provide the most check offs on those hand crafted lists. Their needs, concerns, those deep down worries causing their move from "A to B" cry out for addressing. Otherwise it is just the sticks and bricks we are matchmaking. Lots of empty houses,...

The attraction of a Maine waterfront property listing for the sheer enjoyment of four seasons in Vacationland. Pretty powerful tugs on the heart strings are felt. When thinking about real estate in Maine parked next to the recreational H2O. Of any kind because of the solitude, the unplug and recharge that happens to a person lucky enough to experience it. So like any real estate investment, the property listing in Maine that gets the pick. Has to be priced within a budget. Unless money is no object which is seldom the case. Starting out with a piece of waterfront land in Maine may be a smart move. To get the travel trailer that is sinking in the back yard from lack of use. Up and running and being useful. Parked on the lot on the water in Maine. More about Maine shoreland zoning regulat...

When you are in the "can I help you" real estate service industry, you develop a wide range of methods to deliver information. What is put online is expansive, neat, complete. Because many real estate buyers are too busy to call, email during the day. And it is finally 10:30 at night by the time all their obligations on their end are wrapped up for the day. So the videos of Maine property listings show and tell works best. Quickest, most complete. To do the on demand open houses. Show how they fit and flow, go together. One at a time, in rapid succession, the Maine real estate buyer can wander in. From the cyber curb to glide through the front door of Maine homes. All the front, side, back doors are unlocked for them. (They never are locked in Maine just for the record in the 4th lowest...

To build your own Maine home, have a lot that starts fresh and the land is like a blank canvas. To create the house of your dreams. Or maybe you have already had that but are entering a new season in your life. And need a Maine home with less of this, more of that. Like the trip down the buffet line sliding the tray on the aluminum tubes under the sneeze guard. So house lots for Maine home building. It all starts with a few answers to questions about the land in Maine that needs a structure. When the time is right and built solid, to last. With all the features the budget will allow for the Maine home. Maybe a log home in Maine is the direction to go. Perhaps waterfront property in Maine and working around state regulations. Maine shoreland zoning regulations may be involved along the p...

We meet, list, sell lots of Maine land, farm acreage to folks wanting to grow something. Raise it from the ground up. And after attending a Slow Money Maine meeting in Gardiner ME yesterday, it is so much more than just food production. To satisfy the hunger addiction that most of us have three or more times per day. The quality of home grown, not store bought food makes a difference in how you feel all the way around. Top to bottom, sidesways too. The food. When you barter, buy it from local neighbors and friends. That partnership strengthens a small community in Maine. It brings the bread basket back to local. Not from some far away who knows where venue. And from the local food production, activites to enrich the Maine town you live in fall into place. With co ops, acoustic soups, ha...

Don't need to wear or carry a lot of green or to be Irish... feel four leaf clover lucky scoring a Maine real estate deal. The property prices are always low to the ground. Missing lots of zero places. That do need filling, head north. The closer to the population centers you go outside of small town rural Maine. Where we have more wildlife than people. Where you neighbor is four legged, furry, keeps to himself. Take your pick of properties. I sum it up simply for many out of state real estate buyers. In Maine, divide the property listing prices by three, four or more. Than what you see when crime, gangs, sirens and heavy multi lane traffic happens round the clock. I see adds from metro urban areas for $800,000 this, 1.2 million that and have to smile. Think of all the properties you co...

The couple from New York real estate buyers looking for something to call home, wrapped in as much Maine land as the budget would allow. That was one of the real estate in Maine missions yesterday. And sometimes we get to ride shot gun. Because kids are all belted in, car seats in place. Or in the case of yesterday, a large four year old husky dog named Hank was riding in the back of the all decked out new diesel Dodge Ram pick up truck. It is nice to do the driving. To discuss important stuff in the community tour. And the property listings in Maine,  opening doors process for the show and tell. But if I can not get all the people in the jeep. (Have had a nine passenger Ford Excursion before to help with that shuttling to properties). The next best thing is to hop in with them. Turn ri...

Before secondary mortgage market packaging to sell the paper on a property, it was save up the twenty five percent down payment to mortgage, buy the home. Took some time. The purchase made the priority in the life of the couple, family who wanted to buy a home. Leave the rent rut. So they went without many things, the priority was the roof over the head. Not another tattoo or body piercing. Not something they did not need. Like the latest and greatest electronic device or a new ride to impress. Careful spending, impulse control exercised in the easy does it. To get the keys please to that first home. When local was where it happened in small towns, buying a home made the loan all about character. And study of the property, along with  the borrower. To see what jumps out like red flags a...

  If you use video for real estate in the marketing of your properties, the local community flavor, file size can get in the way.   Because with video, like blogging, Pinterest, all media-stream shelf stocking. Thinking lots about what goes in the slots of online vending machines happens. You do a lot of fresh content insertions and want the delivery to be rich, filling, neat, complete and sweet.   And the device the information is being delivered on. The other end of the signal, teeter totter.  That too is considered as you craft the home made helpful media messages on a variety of topics. A slew of property types where no two are the same. So real estate video file size, if you shoot, edit, render and produce the mp4, the extra formats for the splash display of show and tell. Frames p...

Lots of space in the place inside is not the goal for you, because your real estate needs are small. Satisfied with a tiny home wrapped around you. Thinking small housing floor plans. Barely enough but more than adequate. It is plenty for you the real estate minimalist when it comes to living square footage. Because it fits your lifestyle, approach to living. Because most of your life is spent exploring, puttering, being industrious outside the four walls, roof, floor cubic space. You come in to get out of the weather elements, to refuel you body and bag some ZZzzzz's for pit stops. But the round and round is your living room outside the tiny house. The tennie weenie itty bitty little mini home that to some resembles a cute doll house. Admire it as a miniature. But to live in it? Ice sh...
