Rightly nicknamed as the “Vacation Land”, Maine is the most prolific holiday destination for many, particular the Eastern US. Loved for its rocky coastline, rich inland water ecosystem, green forests and bush pockets, owning Belfast Maine Real Estate is a dream come true.
If you are considering waterfront real estate property in Maine around the ocean front, lakes, rivers or islands, here’s a quick guide to help you find your dream house in shortest time.
Get Geographically Oriented:
Get a map of Maine. That is the easiest thing to do in the home hunting and searching phase. Maine offers some of the best summertime weather anywhere in the US, especially on the coast.

Like most states. Maine has pockets of affordable homes and areas where ultra-spectacular estates perch on the rugged coast.
The proximity to air transportation is often a plus. The cities in Maine supporting scheduled air service are Portland, August, Bangor, Rockland and Bar Harbor. Despite its largely rugged geography, all parts of Maine are fairly well connected by roads. And the winter road crews are terrific at keeping the things moving.
Be specific as to your property type and budget:
Generally, the closer one gets to the water, the higher the prices and, generally, the higher the taxes. If you’re working on a budget, we’ll work with you to find specific areas where you’re likely to benefit from the highest value, or where to find that singular piece of property with all the whistles and bells. Generally, but not always, the further East one goes in the state the more reasonable the costs. That said, multi-million dollar estates abound up and down the coast. Our affiliated agents will find you exactly the right home to fit your lifestyle and needs. Call us @ 207-218-4000.
