So, when I received a call this weekend from a family in Connecticut looking to buy a condo in Cape Elizabeth, I jumped at the opportunity to welcome them and learn more about their hopes for "weekending" in Maine during the summer and eventually retiring here. The process for them, was quick as they had been looking online for well over six months - but I've had clients who have forged a long search finding the "one" from afar. There are many tools to send listings, video neighborhoods, learn about the history of a home, and even sign documentation electronically. Although not recommended, a buyer from out-of state, can find, offer, and even buy a home without ever leaving the comfort of their current location.
So, what are you waiting for? Let's start your Maine home buying search and we'll have you in your new home just in time for all the fun summer activities Maine offers. See you at the beach!
