Retirement, Relocation To Maine For Elderly Golden Years Makes Perfect Sense.

Retirement, Relocation To Maine For Elderly Golden Years Makes Perfect Sense.

You might have been raised in a rual area of the country but somehow through the twists and turns of life, you ended up in a city, urban area.

And it was okay when busy working, a younger grasshopper. Consumed, distracted with raising a family. Chasing the dollar to make ends meet.

But whoa. Now you are eye balling, considering retirement and relocation from the expensive, too fast paced city living that needs to take place.

So where to pin the tail on the make the move to where donkey? It is a big decision, you don’t want to make mistakes later in life you don’t recover from easily.

So consider Maine. A move, relocation, retirement to Maine. Why Vacationland?

Everyone has many of the same items on their relocation, retirement Maine real estate shopping list.

Looking for safe areas, low cost property listings, friendly local people for neighbors, community members. Less people in a place like Maine means no traffic. No delays for just going across town to get something from the local hardware store during a Mr Fix It project. The journey that in a city blows a hole in your afternoon. Because of a zillion stop lights. All as slow as cold molasses running uphill snail paced.

Gangs in Maine, nope. Need to carry a taser. Leave it on the dresser. Off the utility belt where other tools get hung as you saddle up for the day in Maine.

So the signal, tone, attitude and approach on many of our Maine real estate blog posts is explain why retirement, relocation to Maine is the best eenie meenie miney moe selection for most. Not just elderly, later in their life real estate buyers but young families. That group in the audience wants the same garden variety of the good stuff on Maine Bandits, Tree Sleepers Hanging Out.their where to move, relocation aluminum back clipboard.

But the focus of this real estate blog post is why Maine for the elderly, retired property listing buyer.

What would you want if in this growing group leaving the cities, urban concrete jungle. Where the pace is too fast, the surroundings crime riddled.

The problems growing larger due to all the people out on the limb, on the edge, just hanging on in the shuffle.

Pushing, shoving, not so friendly or hold the door open, smiling friendly like happens in small town Maine. Where 108 burgs, villages, communities in Maine spin, roll this way daily. And you and I that live here in a small Maine town feel that connection, closeness. The peace and quiet safety of living. You need to hit a few church or grange hall, snow sled club bean suppers to get my drift if small Maine town is new to you. No, we have no Maine polar bears too.

Recreational options for folks not doing the 9-5 time clock stamp twice, four times a day make Maine a buffet of four season fun. And its low cost, no charge or most of the outdoor options. The migration from the cities is too stretch that retirement fix income check. The balancing act to stay in the black is less worrisome in Maine.

For the first time since 1946, the domestic migration to the sunshine state of Florida relocation pattern has changed.

Florida has lost inward migration and the new death obituaries newspaper insertions are exceeding birth rates. Your HBO Living In Maine.Hemorrhaging is happening at the state with Mickey, Minnie and Goofy wearing the white gloves.

Drinking orange juice, wheeling the shopping cart up and down the aisles. Carrying a fist full of store coupons to redeem at Food Lion, Winn Dixie, Sam’s Club is what the US Census office in that state’s figures show.

Maine has quality health care, a concern of elderly retirement relocating real estate buyers who have parts that are wearing out.

Or needing repair, replacement operations to continue to have a quality of life. Because Maine has an aging population, birds of a feather flock together.

Enjoy the gains made by already local natives that are graying around the temples. Or finding the top of the head pretty hair bare.

Reaching for a three point stance anchored cane. To steady as she goes slowly take the walk around the home, out in the yard or down town shopping.

Where everything is fresh, local in Maine.

Not messed up crazy fast, impersonal like city landscapes. That are overburdened, slow, unfriendly. Where problems escalate, get worse, more troublesome daily.

Healthier happens in Maine all the way around. No matter which angle, perspective you take a gander at things.

If you are looking for a safe, affordable, four season location that is natural, unspoiled, pick Maine. Consider vacationland.There is nothing better for vacation, retirement property listings to kick tires on then waterfront lake listings. One floor easy to heat, maintain single story residential homes that can be bought cheaply. Not needing a mortgage when you move to Maine from a higher priced property listing area to the south.
