According to the Maine Association of Realtors, 1,732 homes were sold in Maine during the month of September – a 6.13% rise since September of last year. The median sales price for those homes reached $188,038, an increase of 1.4%. The market shows “continued stability,” according to Ed Gardner, the 2016 President of the Maine Association of Realtors. “Should sellers take their homes off the market and wait through the holidays? No, life circumstances bring a steady stream of buyers in to the marketplace. Colder weather tends to bring out the more serious buyers and investors who want to take advantage of tax benefits prior to year-end.” Good to know!
