Maine is fast becoming a popular place to retire. We recently covered that Money Magazine named South Portland as the top place to live in Maine for the second year in a row. Not to be outdone, Forbes has announced their top two places to retire in Maine. If you want to be surprised, click the links below to find out who won (warning, spoilers below the links).
I am not surprised to see Portland come out on top. With an abundance of cultural and culinary destinations there is a reason young professionals, families, and retirees are flocking to the state. Jerome Gamache, Jake Bowie, and I have worked with clients on real estate matters all over Maine. With a median home price of $301,000, Portland offers affordability that cities like Boston cannot.
Not quite ready to retire? Jerome has been working with buyers and sellers of Bed and Breakfasts’ and Inns for those ready to transition into a new rewarding career.
Lewiston is another great option, and is even more affordable than Portland. The median home price is $141,000 and is home to Bates College.
