If there’s one thing no one could’ve totally predicted when the pandemic struck, is that people would start flocking to Maine like never before. Not on vacation, but literally packing up and moving here from all over the country. That has caused quite the kerfuffle in the local real estate market.
What makes us so special?
According to Fox ABC Maine and the Wall Street Journal, Bangor is the #9 hottest real estate market in all of the U.S. It makes sense in some ways. Especially when you compare what’s going on up this way, to what’s going on in Portland. Down there, houses are basically pricing themselves out of the local market.
