Moving to Maine, why do people relocate here to Vacationland?
Well, before looking at the positives when the move is north to Maine, you have to examine the motivation to move. What puts fire in the belly, kicks you and me in the pants to get going and make a move.
The reasons people move centers first around renting and wanting to own the four walls, roof and floor that house them.
Wasting money renting is like treading water and not adding to your personal wealth and happiness.
From the lease shift to owning, the reasons for more moves in a lifetime are because of the desire for more space, for a better location.
And often because in small rural real estate markets like Maine, buying bigger and better, more up to date and renovated is cheaper than trying to make a tired, weary collection of sticks and bricks into something more substantial. It is the return on investment and the always low to the ground real estate pricing in an out of the way state like Maine.
More on the mistakes made trying to add on to a home, why additions are tricky business and need extra special attention.
Or to be avoided like in the case of a mobile home additions where they were never designed for one.
The moving to Maine is a pull on the heart strings that haunts out of state buyers until they do finally act on the desire. Less crime, no traffic, low cost properties, all the wildlife and fewer people to deal with all add to the magic of the moving to Maine. Sometimes in retirement, the relocation to Maine is for the Golden Years. Or a second home for vacation use until the big retirement party happens.
