Maine Real Estate Stats For December 2007

This is the type of information we need to know and be able to communicate with our buyers and sellers, says Paul McKee, Team Leader of Keller Williams Realty Mid Maine. The Maine real estate market is holding steady regarding prices, slightly up in 07, but the number of transactions have decreased from the previous year.  Over all, Maine is fairing much better than what you here Nationally and that message needs to made clear to our clients.  Buyers need to know that prices are actually slightly higher, so “give aways” are not happening like they think, and sellers need to know that there are far less people out there making purchases and more properties for those fewer buyers to look at, so their price and the condition of the home needs to be “in the market” to even have a chance of selling now. Keller Williams Realty Mid Maine is located at 34 Center Street in Auburn Maine and they can be reached at 207-784-2525

  2. Hello webmaster I found your blog via Google while searching for real estate and your post regarding elease – Maine Real Estate Statistics For December 2007 | Maine Real Estate Info looks very interesting to me

  3. You need to have a very healthy sense of skepticism as well as a LOT of common sense (which seems to be not-so-common).
    Real estate is a shady business. I’m always surprised how many fast-talking con-men (and women) are out there that made a TON of cash in the last few years. Not only do you need to be a people person, but being naive will drain your pocketbook.
