Maine Real Estate Property Pre-Existing Conditions.

It happens a lot in listing, selling Maine real estate properties.

mainelittleleagueThe improvements, say the addition on a Maine home that has problems long after the real estate closing sale happens.

And the professionals that are brought in like too many cooks in the kitchen all have a different approach to the cure for the problem.

And anger builds, the Maine home owner is not a happy camper.

No one is giving, getting high fives.

Usually, something simple, basic can be tackled and fixed. Remedied quickly, easily. Without a lot of aggravation, cash outlay.

But then there are situations where the original Maine home owner put on an addition and tried to do lots of the work himself. Fancying himself as a jack of all trades, with a tad, a shade of Bob Vila. To whittle the total cash outlay for the project. And it looks good from the exterior, interior. Until some weather happens. And what was not installed properly becomes like a nagging headache that just won't go away.

In Northern Maine, weather happens.

All kinds. So you can not just nail an addition on and hope it seals out the elements. That it keeps everything high and dry. And venting, so air exchanges, and condensation does not happen when outdoor temperature is much different than the thermometer reading inside the living space. Roofing types and proper pitch, angle for drainage another key concern. Or use of room and if moisture is heavy from within, say from a vent-less gas heater that creates water, moisture. Especially if used a lot, cranked high from a cold bloodied home owner that is always cold. LL Bean thermal wrapped fleece clothing or not.

It's Not That Maine Real Estate Buyers Are Anti-Social.

houltonmaineshiretownNo no, not because Maine real estate buyers are anything but friendly... it's just space.

The need to not be in anyone else's. And the same courtesy extended in reverse.

And there is none of that waste of time crap about keeping up with the Jone's in Maine. No one is out to impress, make you envious or jealous.

One of the biggest motivators to move, for a relocation, retirement, or to raise a family, investment in Northern Maine property listings is often sheer lack of too many people. As the one key element front and foremost.

Had one fellow recently put it very bluntly. He ask me if I knew where "Hell" was. I told him I hope I don't find out, that I was working hard to avoid the place later on.

How far to Houlton Maine from your end is hard telling without knowing where you are now! How far from here to there, to get you to Maine is going to take how long? Well, Maine is a big state. Daily run into folks on line, over the phone and when away on vacation that ask the age old question about how far to Houlton Maine.

 maine coastal highwaysAnd for many we know here it comes. When they initially share that they have been to Maine and that we must be near that same place.

No, we are not right next door to the Kittery Maine shopping outlets.

The location that is barely into Maine that is only a few whiskers across the big green bridge that connects to New Hampshire on the south end of Vacationland.

 Next up, I've been to Bar Harbor, Portland Maine on a cruise ship is shared.

We getting warmer? So Houlton Maine is handy to that location right?

No, Maine is one big state. And the county I live in, Aroostook is the largest of the sixteen. And the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined.

 So think Interstate 95 that starts in Houlton Maine, ends up in Key West Florida eh?

The Interstate 95 corridor joins the Atlantic Trans Canada highway that leads to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island to due east. I-95 has a raised, legal speed limit to 75 miles per hour north of Orono Maine. So zipping, clipping north means no traffic. Unless you count deer, moose as traffic to watch out for, avoid hitting on the trip up Interstate 95. Northern Maine is like being at an outdoor natural Disney Land. But no lines at Space Mountain, any of the rides. Cool.
