$300k: Would You Pick The Fun Downtown Portland Studio or The Peaceful Lakeside Home in St Albans?
The housing here in Maine is wild, especially in southern parts of the state and along the coast. Once working from home became the norm due to the pandemic, folks decided if they were going to be stuck at home, they might as well make home somewhere beautiful and less populated, like Maine.
Even before COVID hit the state of Maine has largely operated as two different states. With the southern populated and coastal areas being more homogenous and the northern areas living a different way of life. Different ideals, culture, industries, etc. These differences also resulted in different price points for properties.
So, what can $300,000 get you today, in June of 2021? Here's a breakdown of the two properties. One in the heart of Downtown Portland and the other, in Somerset County in St Albans.
The Portland property is currently pending sale through Dan Roche of Kennebunk Beach Realty.
The St Albans property is still on the market as of publishing through Zachary Monroe of Realty of Maine - Bangor.
