Maine ranches, the term used to find a home with land is farm properties.
Real estate that is used for farming purposes are very popular. Not everyone is thinking farming on the large scale either. But just like the outdoor lifestyle, the wide open space that country living provides.
When you think ranches, I don't know about you but for me Bonanza, something with thousands of acres and herds of cattle comes to mind.
With Hoss, Little Joe, amazing mountain backdrops, wide fast moving rivers to get the cattle across on the way to market.
Because I grew up on a Maine farm, and own one that is in crop production, the term ranch was not used much growing up. Except to describe a one floor home that often comes in the basic 5-3-1 configuration of 5 rooms, 3 bedrooms, 1 bath layout.
If local property buyers are all your have to work with, using the real estate terms your friends and neighbors weave into conversations are a smart idea.
You'll lose them if you don't pick familiar terms and native expressions. But when the Internet marketing is far reaching and out of state or out of the country, speaking the real estate language for terms your buyers, sellers use is critical. So the customer or client feels you are talking the same lingo and more importantly because real estate searches made online better include the terms being typed into the queries.
So ranches for sale in Maine, not just the single level homes with a yard out back but the properties with acreage, with open fields and pastures. Maybe with fencing all established, with the barns, machine sheds, other farm buildings needed for housing critters, crops, agriculatural equipment that go along with the lifestyle pursuit.
I have found it better to get the word out on what each and every property is all about upfront and online.
And not to wait until the buyer actually makes it to Northern Maine to kick some tires and tour some farm property listings.
