For anyone reading this Blog locally, if your thoughts ever include looking for a new home, a Lakes Region vacation spot, or that perfect lot to build that lakefront, lake-or-mountain view delight you’ve had in mind, now is the absolute best time to really “see” any of the many properties and lots that are currently available. And it’s a great time of year to get out and about, because of special annual events – some this weekend – that many of us enjoy, and we recommend planning a showing with us for this coming weekend along with planning to enjoy some area fun!
It’s Winter Carnival time in Bridgton right after we all get through Friday the 13th, and whether your fancy is winning a ping pong tournament, taking a polar-bear dip in the lake to raise funds for a great cause, or surprising your significant other on Saturday night by attending the annual Winter Carnival Dance – Saturday happens to be Valentine’s Day as a reminder! – so you have those activity options along with many others.
The annual Sebago Lake fishing derby is also this coming weekend. The many regional and nearby ski areas are saying so far this is an amazing year to enjoy a day on the slopes with attendance being festive and high – which makes good sense. Local southern Maine skiers – and those from away from all over New England – who come here to enjoy Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Saddleback, Mt. Abram, and Shawnee Peak right next door to us, all skiers seem to think more about skiing, when there is plenty of snow in their own backyards. On that note: school cancellations are already coming in for Monday, and additional significant snow is expected to fall through this coming Tuesday. While we all figure out where to put more new snow, we here at the agency suggest that a focus on fun, also matters. You only live once in this lifetime. Get out an enjoy your often too-idle cross country skis, ice skates, downhill skis, or snowshoes. Plan something fun and maybe a bit different for you, with your friends and family. And if you want to really “see” a property just for the heck of it while you are out and about: Give us a call. This is the time of year to do so. One of our talented agents will work with you to set up the right showing – or two if you’d like – smoothly into your schedule while doing our best to add some more fun to your weekend. What could be more fun than actually finding just what you have been looking for? Whatever your plans, we suggest that you get out there, be safe, and have fun!
