Maine State Capitol

Maine is the northernmost state on the East Coast. Popular outdoor activities in the spring and summer include camping, visiting the beach, and exploring the mountains, lakes, rivers, and coastline by hiking, biking, or seaplane. Fall activities include hunting, apple picking, and fly-fishing. In winter, heavy snows fill several ski slopes and small villages throughout the state.

Portland is a historic seaport and Maine’s largest city. It is located on Casco Bay. The Old Port is a lively seaside shopping and restaurant district. The region is also known for arts and entertainment, particularly the Portland Museum of Art and the galleries, antique stores, and performance venues in the Arts District.

Maine real estate provides plenty of great options for either primary residences or vacation properties. Maine’s cities include single-family urban homes, turn-of-the-century houses on tree-lined streets, multi-family investment properties, and nearby farmland. Oceanfront and lakefront cottages provide picturesque scenes year-round.
