Where The Property In Maine Is Can Mean Smaller Land Acreage Works Fine.

Where The Property In Maine Is Can Mean Smaller Land Acreage Works Fine.

In areas of the country where everything is jammed tight as a tin of sardines packed shoulder to shoulder, space is a premium.

Maine is not like that. Also in areas of wall to wall people, hunting and other sports can mean everything for property is posted. Keep out. Go away.

And you only hunt, fish, tramp on your own land. Not anyone elses that is posted every ten feet with warnings about what happens if you don’t stay away.

Clever signs appear like “Survivors will be prosecuted” and “Smile, for the police line up photo, you are on candid camera.” Ones with skull and crossbones that send a chilly image tone. To make you think twice about setting foot on land you don’t own.

In states like Pennsylvania I have had Maine land buyers tell me it is only possible to hunt your own land.

Nothing else is out there to use. That would get boring if you could not explore, go out on to other Maine land for your recreational passion, pastime. Especially snow sledding, ATV four wheeling, cross country skiing, etc like we enjoy doing in Maine. Pretty much would wipe out the sport unless we had land owners sharing the resource.

Because less people are in Maine and more wildlife, you can explore freely. Be respectful of the Maine land owner, the woodlot owner or farmer who allows trails across their property. Tread lightly. Be a good steward and keep it like you found it happens in Maine.

But in the case of do I need a major chunk of Maine, a big property acreage to assure my privacy, seclusion, no you don’t. Because in Aroostook County with eleven people per square mile, it’s help yourself. Plenty of open areas with trails to hike. Wander down to streams, rivers along with public Maine lake landings. Means that part of the fun is already covered, a given.

And with the couple acres of Maine land you buy, if it has borders on something strongly held that is already large Maine Land To Grow Your Food, Raise Critters size, you can “stand next to it’s fire”. As Jimi Hendrix would croon and guitar twang loudly.

You can enjoy basking in the shadow of a big piece of Maine land next door. So a small acreage, just a Maine land lot is plenty. If parked in the right place.

Enough to begin the unplug, recharge exercise Maine is know for by so many who come back to Vacationland for more and more. Year after year. Passing down the tradition of never fade memories to the next generation.

Location, location, location for Maine land, any real estate still applies as the end all.

Timing is pretty important in life too though. And has become a close second to the three L’s.

If across the road from the Maine land you are eye balling is mountain goat decline steep, who else is ever going to build on it? And you on the high level side of the road don’t need to own it to protect the seclusion because no one else can use it right? Same thinking with a large swamp that the small high and dry Maine land lot borders. No one else is going to be chomping at the bit to own it. So relax. Your small land in Maine is plenty. Your peace and quiet is protected from anyone buying around you and encroaching on the calm, healing setting you need.

Where it is becomes as important as what the Maine land is all about size wise.

Property size for the Maine land matters less if what is around the property is not going to ever change. In the case of the swamp or marsh Maine land there is plenty of wildlife that visits it. But black flies and mosquitoes could become a nuisance. And you might be down a pint of blood if you spend lots of time outdoors.

Winter should be fine Mooers Realty Maine Real Estate Office Owner Andrew Mooersand dandy though to dress warm when you are outside ice fishing, going  skiing, snowmobiling. So we list and sell all types of properties for Maine land.

Low cost junk Maine land too! All pieces of low cost land in Maine have a purpose, application, audience for buyers too. Love all, serve all is the hard Rock’s motto. We also feel there are not pieces of Maine land, no matter how small or small on the feature list that they should be bannished to Misfit Island of acreage listings too!
