This coming weekend, will somehow already find us in early February 2019 here in our great Sebago Lakes Region of Maine. Everyone here at Maine Real Estate Choice wants you to know and believe how amazing the Real Estate market still is, right now, yes in the winter. Many years past, it may have been true and frugal to wait until late March, or April, or May to consider listing a property or home to obtain your best value. The same is not true in today’s market which is still absolutely first and foremost, a very strong sellers market, which now slowly and surely is building more inventory for buyers to have more and more choices. Great and top value continues to occur regardless of the month showing on the calendar, and thankfully we are not as often seeing the crazy “only on the market for hours” or less than a day – which certainly can occur, however it is no longer the norm which we’ve all witnessed in the last couple of years. Here are important steps to help you, help yourselves if you are buying or selling. Buyers: Get yourselves pre-qualified. There are many sellers who will not even entertain an offer, unless the buyer has a pre-qualified status. And if you are a potential seller: It matters a lot to “trust the statistics”. It is important to understand and agree with the current market analysis, which will be accurate based upon recent sold prices in your Neighboorhood. Few things are more important than getting the listing price accurate, for all parties, when the time is right for you to go to market. And remember: that time is not at all currently dependent, on what the calendar says. We as a team really enjoy listening to what is most important to you – as either a buyer or a seller – and bringing our wealth of collective knowledge to you and your advantage brings us great joy and satisfaction. No team of realtors exceeds our collective desire to provide to you and yours, with the best Real Estate experience possible. Give us a try. You will be glad that you did!
As we approach the middle of January 2019 already, let’s take a closer look at upcoming winter events here in our region. Just about one month away there are two of our larger events taking place here in the Maine Sebago Lakes region and just west, in Bridgton, on the weekend of February 26th.
Here is a link to the Bridgton Winter carnival:
Greater Bridgton Lakes Region Winter Carnival
February 16, 2019
Headlined by sleigh rides, dogsled rides, a polar dip, and ice fishing, this button-admission event also includes a snowshoe 5K, ice bar, and evening fireworks.
Also February 16th and 17th, 2019: the annual Sebago Lake fishing derby will be taking place on Sebago Lake on both Saturday and Sunday that same weekend as the Bridgton Saturday Winter Carnival event:
These are well attended annual events that – much like the Naples Maine Blues Festival weekend that always takes place on Fathers Day weekend each year – find themselves growing in popularity each year. And once again, if anyone pulls a record Togue through the ice, the prize for that fish will earn you an amazing $100,000.00 prize!
We do not speak often enough about how blessed we are here at Maine Real Estate Choice to be located right directly in the heart of the great Maine Sebago Lakes Region here on Route 302 directly across from the intersection of Route 11 here in Naples Maine, where we as dedicated agents in a great organization, have a singular advantage of being located truly in the heart of the Maine Sebago Lakes Region. So many people vacation here, and have vacation properties for good reason, and we are so very fortunate and thankful to be able to enjoy our area, year round! We are truly a four season destination, and we hope that we can help you with any of your Real Estate needs here in the region. Give us a try. You will be glad that you did!
