Marketing real estate during Coronovirus, lucky to be a small rural Maine broker.
In my area, everything is cheaper. The cost of living is lower to in Aroostook County. The locals don't hire everything done and no one lives high on the hog with cash to burn thinking. We don't need a lot to be happy and content. The small tightly connected populaton is very grateful for what we do have. Very aware and know it is more than many for which we are humbly thankful. We have all we need for quality of life taking the precautions needed to avoid catching or spreading the coronovirus COVID 19 infection.
Real estate property listings in Northern Maine are low cost.
Not some of them, all of them. With coronovirus pandemic, how has that changed anything in the way things roll? Well as for the effect on the Maine real estate market. Too early to know because the numbers are still being made. When tough times arrive, we do everything we can to help others struggling. We all know our roles and work together to get things done in small Maine towns. Maine is mostly small rural communities, has only a handful of cities. More land and wildlife than people.
Appraisals on properties for a mortgage are based on the market that was, real property sales in Maine.

All the while pointing out it makes a big difference WHERE in Vacationland you are curious about today. Buyers, sellers, agents, brokers, bankers, appraisers, the entire local population should be concerned about and looking for current real estate market nitty gritty details.
You and I read and hear the same reports on China, Italy, how things are developing around the coronovirus pandemic.
But blog post is here in Maine. How are we living with coronovirus in rural Maine? I think much easier than most places where the population is big, slow moving and crowded too tightly together. It is a lot like David and Goliath in how efficient and creatively the day to day gets down in small town rural Maine.
In the span of just twenty days, the Texas or wherever it comes from crude oil tea dropped 54 cents a gallon where I live in Maine. The heating oil delivery just made to my in town home was $1.54 per gallon. My son, daughter in law and first grandchild live just a mile and a half way relying on strictly wood at the farm. There the year's fire wood for next heating season is in place. As much of the food we do eat is produced locally. Potatoes, squash, cabbage are farm to table.
Canning and preserving happens in small rural areas. Home made bread, muffins, cookies and cakes always rolled out of the kitchen. People have chickens for eggs and meat. There is beef in the freezer, it's what's for dinner. Crock pots with veggies, a variety of approaches to keep it new and interested has always been served up to put on the family table. It was not caused because of COVID19 developments. We survive differently and simply living makes a game out of the way we roll. We enjoy year round what most only tap into once a year or less often in Vacationland. This is like a natural Disney Land without the people, without the lines at Space Mountain. Maine outdoors to camp, to fish, hunt is open year round and it is accessible by the common man without even opening the wallet or purse.
