If you’re thinking about moving to Midcoast Maine, we’d be happy to call you our neighbor! Below, we’ve listed just a few things you should know about this area before you contact your Maine realtor looking for homes for sale in Brunswick, Freeport, or any other area we serve.

What To Know About Midcoast Maine

They weren’t kidding about the lobster.

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Maine? If you’re like a lot of people, it’s probably lobster.

It is an incorrect stereotype that Mainers live off of lobster. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t have the option to! From lobster rolls to sushi rolls to macaroni and cheese to omelets, there’s no wrong way, time, or place to enjoy lobster in Maine.

The winters are… wintery.

If you truly cannot handle snow in any capacity, Maine is not the place for you. However, if you love snow, or you can at least tolerate it, then dealing with a cold, snowy winter is well worth it for the breathtaking spring, summer, and fall seasons.

Because of our coastal location, winters are wet and snowy, but it is rare for a cold spell to last longer than a few days. Most of the horror stories you hear about Maine winters come from inland Maine where they get pounded with snow without much reprieve. The cities in Midcoast Maine are accustomed to heavy snow, so the roads often stay pretty clear and driveable.

We don’t mean to harp on the snow. The cold weather chases out tourists and leaves towns quiet and full of snowy charm. It is the perfect time to hit the mountains for a weekend of skiing, take the kids sledding, or go snowshoeing through our beautiful landscape.

Your friends and family will want to visit you.

When searching for homes for sale in Midcoast Maine, you might want to think of buying a home with a spare bedroom. While many non-Mainers will harp on how bad the winter is “out there,” they’ll be begging to come visit by the time summer is here and sailboats are leisurely taking off from the port or when fall rolls around the landscape explodes in brilliant yellows and reds.

There’s something here for everybody.

If you are a young professional looking for work, Portland is just a short drive from beautiful Midcoast Maine.
