With any outside chores requiring daylight needing to be done by 4:30pm these days, and with Thanksgiving now somehow behind us, we have only three more full weeks ahead of us before the days start getting longer after December 21st. We also have been blessed so far this fall here in the Maine Sebago Lakes Region to only have experienced a few flakes here and there with nothing sticking and lasting as of yet. Mornings here in the region have been consistently colder with frequent frost, however, daytime temperatures have been seasonably warm. Those same relatively mild temperatures should continue through the first of the December later this week and into next weekend, predicted to be in the 40s and approaching 50° a couple of days. We do recommend that now is the best time, if you have not done so already, to make sure that your snowblowers are tuned up and at the ready, and that now is the time to also prepare any winter toys for use this coming winter season. Avoiding the first-snow-that-sticks rush, will save both time and aggravation in getting things prepared for the winter season ahead. It is not too early for snow tires now, and a small amount of preventative automotive maintenance now is likely to help you a lot when you might need it most.
Our team here at Maine Real Estate Choice hopes you had a great Thanksgiving holiday, and please be and remain safe as we continue the Holiday celebrations including welcoming the New Year.
Make it a great week!
Everyone here at Maine Real Estate Choice wishes you and yours the Happiest Thanksgiving Day ever!
Wherever this post happens to find you, make it a great day from all of us here who are enjoying Thanksgiving today with family in our lovely Maine Sebago Lakes Region!
This weekend before Thanksgiving many are either planning for traveling to family, or preparing for family to arrive in the coming days. A common theme this year seems to be how quickly this Holiday season has approached for so many, this author included. Here in the Maine Sebago Lakes Region where we are blessed to live, work, and enjoy our lives, I suggest this may have a lot to do with the unusually warm weather in general we have enjoyed this fall, with a few cold days and our first few frosty mornings just recently behind us.
This year a very common theme I am seeing that makes a lot of sense, is to look closely at how a vast majority of us are tied to personal communication devices, whether it be a work laptop, an iPhone or an Android Smartphone, and how much this “constant touch” with social media, the news, weather, Email, can take us away from “the moment” and the people we are with. Everyone here at Maine Real Estate Choice wants each of you to have the best Holiday Season ever. Time spent with family isn’t always easy and as relaxing and fun as most would prefer, and unnecessary difficult feelings can result between people that really should only be focused on enjoying time together with family. To avoid difficulties, communicate and share clarity around what is reasonable as to responding to our devices we carry. We all know that too many people are going to be sharing and posting pictures of the best pie and turkey, when in reality nothing is more important than whatever is happening in the moment you are in, with the people that we are blessed to be with. From all of us at Maine Real Estate Choice, have the happiest Thanksgiving ever. See you next week.
As we somehow approach mid-November here already in the Maine Sebago Lakes Region, all of us here at Maine Real Estate Choice want your Holidays and seasonal changes to be as smooth delightful as possible. Many things should take place this time of year to help make the coming months go as smoothly as possible. Taking care of your heating system(s) is an important proactive step before real 24/7 heating becomes a reality for our homes and businesses in the coming days, weeks, and next few months. A proactive cleaning and air filter cleaning and change will not only save you typically a lot more in heating costs than the cost of the preventative maintenance fee, it is a great way to avoid a very expensive weekend service call to make a repair that very well might have been avoided by a system clean up and tune up. With the cost of home heating oil, and all fuels including gasoline currently on the rise, it makes sense to save as much as possible on your heating needs this upcoming season that we are now finding ourselves entering.
If you go back to our main website page on your laptop you will see how much we here at Maine Real Estate Choice focus on the great Sebago Lakes Region of our great state of Maine. We have Lake Region info, you will learn a lot about us in the ABOUT US section, and we provide a lot of valuable information about the towns and lakes that we service, along with important facts and features including important Maine Shore land Zoning information for Shore land owners, along with clear information as to the recreational rules and regulations for water and shore craft for fishing, hunting, and all season information such as ATV and Snowmobiling rules which vary by region, lake, and town. Something that we are very proud of, is our statistics page, which when you look at the facts, will show you why it is important for you to have the experience and knowledge that our team possesses when you look to either purchase or sell waterfront, lakefront, water access, water view, and any land or location here in our region of interest to you. We know our area, and we are proud of our strengths. We want you and your family to have the best experience possible, and the decisions that you make now can have importance to your family for years and possibly generations to come. It has never been more important to have great Real Estate experience and diligence working for you on your behalf, because there is more to understand and work through in a real estate transaction today than ever before in the history of our business. We take that responsibility very seriously, and we would love for you to come and meet us, and find just what you are looking for. It is our job and our pleasure to meet and exceed your needs. We hope that you will call us today, because the time of year for an excellent real estate experience has never been less important also, than it is today. Just as much important real estate business is being done during months that are traditionally not thought of as strong Real Estate timeframes, as the Spring and Summer months that are more expected to be peak season. Every day right now is just as likely to bring great real estate success for sellers and buyers alike, as is what many may feel is traditionally not a peak time to do business. Let us show you that whatever your goals and dreams may be, we want to fully understand them, and help you to accomplish your goals. Thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
