A New Normal for Maine – E-Newsletter – Vol. 54

We are proud to present to you Volume 54 of our E-Newsletter. Here are a few highlights from President and Owner Chris Lynch’s update on the current Maine Real Estate market:

Over the course of the preceding decades, massive urbanization has been the trend in most of the country. However, there has been a sharp reversal triggered by the influence of COVID-19.”

“…the synergies, cost efficiencies, and quality of life enhancements associated with remote work will remain a significant driver behind the deurbanization transformation. Maine real estate, with its strong price performance, has been the direct beneficiary of this recent trend.”

“our great state offers an unparalleled lifestyle with easy access to some of the most beautiful places on the Eastern Seaboard.”

Who Would Have Thought? – E-Newsletter – Vol. 53

We are proud to present to you Volume 53 of our E-Newsletter. Here are a few highlights from President and Owner Chris Lynch’s update on the current state of Maine Real Estate:

“There has been a widespread reversal of the urbanization trend that dealt a blow to suburban living over the last decade. Maine is among many destinations nationwide that have experienced a significant surge in the demand for real estate.”

When people hear about low inventory, they aren’t necessarily able to appreciate how slim the inventory really is. There are several towns with 10 or fewer “Active” listings available for sale today.”

We continue to enjoy many special benefits that have grown in recognition and  importance to so many people who continue to work their way through the COVID-19 changes impacting all of our lives. Maine is blessed with low population density, low traffic, low crime, low COVID-19 incidence, 6,000 lakes and ponds, miles upon miles of Atlantic coastline, broadband internet, easy accessibility by car to all of the northeastern states, and an unparalleled outdoor lifestyle around which to work and play.”

Significant Sales 2020

If you have followed our social media, blog, and/or newsletter, you will know that we have experienced what seems to be an unprecedented pace of new buyers seeking a primary residence or seasonal property in our great state. The surge in buyer demand continues to outstrip the supply of new listings coming on the market. Although the new listing inventory is currently both at a seasonal and cyclical low point, we continue to source new listings each day.

If you are considering selling your home, we have a deep backlog of buyers for most properties and locations in Maine. I would urge you to contact me or one of our experienced agents to help you take advantage of this unique market opportunity.

Our Significant Sales for 2020 is just a sampling of the many great properties our team successfully closed during these complex and challenging times.

Is It True?

“Maine is typically the last in line when it comes to experiencing most national and regional fads and trends. In fact, by the time some national trends finally make it to Maine, they have already faded out of sight, leaving nearly a ripple of change here. Maine is a small state in terms of population, with approximately 1.35 million people, but it also commands the feeling of unlimited open space for growth and recreation, with miles and miles of bold Atlantic coastline and more than 6,000 lakes and ponds. Yet, Maine’s growth has always been tempered by its infamous reputation for long winters. Is it true that Maine’s reputation of desirability, livability, and accessibility has moved beyond its “Vacationland” status?” Read more…

TIME TO WAIVE THE YELLOW FLAG? – MAINE REAL ESTATE

It is time to celebrate 10 straight years of improving real estate market conditions for the state of Maine. Some years were better than others, but over this period we have been enjoying gains in both Unit Volume and Median Sales prices. While most of our readers enjoy our market commentary, others have, from time to time, accused me of being a “shill” for Maine real estate.Of course the continual barrage of data reporting record breaking market conditions for the better part of the past one hundred plus months speaks for itself. All of that said, I think it is time to fly the Yellow Flag for a bit as the waters are getting a bit choppier. Read More.
