Maine real estate market reports can be as dry as a kid's popcorn balls found tucked away from Halloween trick or treating a few years back.
But that's if the market reports are rows of numbers and missing pie or bar graphs that tell you quickly what is going on in the many sections of a local real estate market. The ones you would find most interesting in feeling the pulse and reading the collected vital signs.
Market reports for real estate that deal with the specific areas of Maine a buyer or selling is thinking about are the most important to them.
Because decisions made affect their pocket books, families and careers. When to move, when to stay put and hold 'em like a real life Poker game. The stakes are high when your family is involved in the move.
And if the reader of a blog post or listening to the media real estate market report is just not interested at this time in buying or selling, the current property listing stats get skipped over completely. Or forgotten beyond the catchy media headline or sound bite. Because at this moment in time they are not a seller or buyer with a listing or sale in the wind and are busy concerned about other pressing matters in life.
But real estate market reports for Maine that do examine the current conditions are a highly valuable economic tool to a seller on the fence and thinking about the best time to slide off and list their property.
Or for a property buyer that kicks it into high gear to purchase now because some factor like rising interest rates or a shrinking supply of the real estate listings he can afford is influx. Waiting could mean less value for the buck in the real estate exchange.
Like travel when the weather can be fickle, there is a best time to hop in or out of the real estate market. Or stay parked and continue to study the current real estate market like a doctor and nurse do the vitals on the patient in the bed hooked up to all the glowing numbers, beeping monitors.
