Houlton Maine Homes For Sale, Any Bad Neighborhoods To Avoid?

Houlton Maine Homes For Sale, Any Bad Neighborhoods To Avoid?

Houlton Maine homes for sale, let’s talk about neighborhoods.

In large city urban areas, there are different pockets of real estate listings in the good, bad, the ugly spots.

To flock to or avoid like the plague because of crime, decay, poor city planning. Healthy or in decline, flat lining? Concern about the quality of life for you, your family and their safety is number one.

The return on the property investment after you make the home listing purchase a close second.

For starters, lots of local FAQ topics need home work study, addressing to get ready for the visit to our Northern Maine area.

Often the Houlton Maine home buyer from outside the state will ask about areas, neighborhoods to avoid. Because where they currently live, there are lots of real estate locations on the Monopoly board game where you drive around them. Steer clear.

Circling them with a red magic marker as not the places to put your money. Crime the big reason, or schools are better in this area or two towns over from this community.

Because of being the 4th lowest crime state, the avoiding one neighborhood or area over another flies out the door. Not a concern.


There are no bad small Maine towns, blighted areas.

And rut rho. The bottom drops out. The factory closes, padilocks its doors and a no jobs situation happens. Hits hard.

So the shift becomes looking over the way a town is run. The level of services and how high  the Maine property taxes on the castles there.

Or how far, how much gas and time on the road, at the wheel is buying a greater Houlton Maine area home going to impact? Tap, strain the wallet or the purse handling the household spending budget?

Location close to lakes, further from the shopping center of Houlton Maine is how you adjust the people per mile. The density, degree of neighbors. Because after living out of state, the Houlton Maine home buyer wants space. Less people. Sad but true.

Most of the maine lake boat photoproblems they had back at their last few homes have been drama situations with neighbors.

They move, relocate and retire to Houlton Maine to increase the missing personal space. Around their home, their persons.

Traveling to the local health care facilities, schools, churches and shopping become the creating a circle.

To stay within these lines for a Houlton Maine property purchase for the glass slipper listing fit for them.

To consider only property listings this many miles from Houlton Maine if not just in the town itself. As for neighborhoods that are better or not so hot, usually traffic is the big concern. That impacts them negatively.mooersrealty realtor andy mooers photo

How busy is the street or corner the Houlton Maine property sits on? But traffic here in small Aroostook County is so so different, easier to swallow. Than the many lanes of super highway with backed up traffic, airports and trains adding to the noise and confusion.  Too high a concentration of rental units or business intrusions making them in transition tips the scales too.

Houlton Maine neighborhoods, it is like there is just one big single lay of the land. Not subdivisions of hundreds built at a time in projects, or regulated by snarky Home Owner’s Associations. Or over regulated with straggling layers of government. Rattling their swords and threatening court action, fines for this or that infraction in the stuffy, burdensome local ordinances.

Welcome to small Maine town simpler living with community values. Family first. Less concern about the good or bad areas, neighborhoods to consider investing in a Houlton Maine home or other property listing.
