Maine's Lakes and Lakefront Real Estate 

Maine Lakes

 
Each region of Maine offers water recreation and desirable home ownership.

Homebuyers have endless waterfront and waterview real estate options. From the beauty of Sebago Lake to the more secluded Moosehead area, there are homes available in all styles and price ranges.

  
 

The Southern Region (Sebago)

Less than 30 miles northwest of Portland is the Sebago Lake Region, an area consisting of nearly 50 lakes nestled among rolling green hills and towering pines. Sebago Lake, the largest in the state, covers over 45 square miles. There are many vacation homes and resort properties along its shores.

Among the popular smaller lakes nearby are Panther Pond, Little Sebago, Long Lake, Thompson Lake, Coffee Pond, Brandy Pond, Moose Pond, Pleasant Lake, and Crescent Lake.

The Central Region (Belgrade)

The Belgrade Lakes Region is one of Maine's premier communities and four-season vacation and recreational destinations. The area offers peaceful lakeside surroundings, superb fishing, as well as swimming, boating and hiking.

While the greater Belgrade region includes the China Lakes area to the east and the Winthrop lakes area to the south, the actual Belgrade Lakes are usually defined by a chain of seven fresh water lakes ranging in size from 500 acres to 8,000 acres. All the lakes feature excellent fishing and boating and all have state maintained boat launches for easy accessibility.

The Western Mountains Region (Rangeley)

Located 4 hours from Boston the Rangeley Lake region offers not only a spectacular natural setting, but true seclusion. Nestled in the western mountains, the terrain includes hills, valleys and mountains not typically found in the southern part of the state. Lakes and ponds of all sizes are found here and the fishing is considered the best in Maine.

Lakes in the area include Rangeley Lake, Mooselookmeguntic and Cupsuptic Lakes, Upper and Lower Richardson Lakes, Aziscohos Lake, Umbagog Lake, which straddles the New Hampshire border, and Kennebago Lake. Twenty-five miles to the northeast sits Flagstaff Lake.

Moosehead Lake is extremely large and stretches 40 miles from south to north, is 20 miles wide, and has a surface area of over 75,000 acres. Surrounding the lake are vast forests and wilderness. Boston is approximately 260 miles away.

         Real Estate Values

Although not true in all cases, real estate prices tend to be less expensive the farther up the Maine coastline you go and the farther inland you travel.

Maine has long been a destination for second homes either along the coast or one of our beautiful lakes or rivers.

Following several years of depressed pricing, the market is improving and it appears to be a good time to make a purchase.

     Customize Your Search

Our home search is very easy to use.  Select your price range, location, waterfront type and home style.  Receive email updates of all matching properties. You will have access to all properties for sale in the Maine MLS. 

Why Use a Buyer's Agent

If you are thinking of buying a home, or are in the process of buying one, you can't afford to do it alone.

Local knowledge can be hard to come by. While the Internet can be a good place to begin your search, there is no substitue for hands-on experience in the local market.

Often times we'll meet a client for the first time and we'll have to spend a great deal of time unraveling all the myths and misconceptions that have accumulated before arrival.
