Why Rent in Maine?
Maine is the Northheast tip of the United States. Maine not only shares a border with New Hampshire, but with Canada as well. This state has quite a beautiful exterior; the stony coastline looks out to the Atlantic Ocean, and the inlands are a mixture of hills, freshwater lakes, and beautiful Pine woodlands. Some of the most popular cities to find great real estate deals are in Portland, Lewistown, and Bangor.
Maine is well known for the seafood, especially lobster! The fresh seafood is attributed to the rising sea level that has actually overrun parts of Maine, creating many lakes and islands within the state. Maine has warm summers and cold snowy winters with a quite seasonal temperature variance. Many residents chose to buy real estate in this wonderful state due to the vibrant seasons and varied temperatures. Others choose to vacation or buy time shares in Maine for only a season or two.
Maine home buyers love the fact that Maine has over 400 townships and coastal islands that have no local government. The urban areas though, do have organized municipals which voted Maine to be a same-sex marriage state. Some famous “Mainers” are business man Milton Bradley, actress Liv Tyler, and writer Stephen King.
