Enjoying Halloween

It is that time of year again when everyone here at Maine Real Estate Choice – located in the heart of the great Maine Sebago Lakes Region – we know how important it is to remind everyone that this coming Wednesday it will be very, very important to drive very safely in the late afternoon and after-dark early evening hours, as Halloween is celebrated. We all want only a very safe and delightful day in our region for all during this year’s celebration. As always on this Holiday there will be many excited children in costume Trick-or-Treating in the dark that is now our late afternoon, again this year during a regular weekday commute home from work. Driving extra attentively is imperative as you approach and enter any neighborhoods on the 31st late afternoon and early evening. There are few holidays that children look forward to more than Halloween and we want to remind you that excited young children often act impulsively without understanding the potential danger of how their actions – which can be the opposite of a pleading parent – could get them in swift danger and in harms way in our many neighborhoods. On Wednesday it will be a best practice to expect the unexpected when driving in the afternoon and evening. No one wants any reports of any difficulties, especially here in the great Maine Lakes Region where there are many neighborhoods that are traditionally very safe locations for our trick or treaters of all ages, who look to spread the joy on this ghoulishly fun 2018 evening. The weather is predicted to be cloudy and in the in low 50 degree range dropping into the upper 40’s this coming Wednesday. Thank you for making sure that you spread the word and remind everyone you know that is driving on Wednesday, to be extra careful and expect, the unexpected! Thank you again this year! And as always, make it a great week!

Looking Towards Peak Foliage Season

With the end of Fair Season here in the great Sebago Lakes region of Maine, we usually are looking at vest, flannel shirt, and hat weather as we transition into full fall season, but not so fast! We certainly have some Indian summer hanging tough here,
going into the second full week of October, temperatures many days this week coming are predicted to be in the 70’s and even the low 80°’s! And a reminder: Trick or Treaters will be out at the end of this month and there are bulk deals on candy available still now while it is warm and the demand is not yet peak. And though daylight savings time usually takes place in late October, this year it is a bit later and is still almost a month away, with the clocks not falling back until November 4th this year. Our Maine Sebago Lakes Region is beginning to enjoying almost peak foliage with the higher elevations to our west and north now reaching peak colors with our weather still not giving us any sign of a hard frost yet overnight in sight. Home heating oil prices have gone up 10 to 15 cents, to an average around $2.80 per gallon as we all should check our fuel gages and plan accordingly.  This is also a great time to come and see us so you can visit the camp and the Lakefront properties we have to offer while it is still easy to get to all properties, before the snow does fly this fall, and so that we can show you  the many value-packed opportunities we have to offer throughout our great Maine Sebago Lakes Region.
We offer a full assortment of real estate services including the sale and purchase of residential property, land, vacation, lakefront and waterfront homes, fixer-uppers, commercial, new construction packages. Our experience in the region is unmatched! Call us today. You will be glad that you did!

Make it a great week!
