When people think of Maine they naturally think of the ocean. Our most common web inquiry has something to do with waterfront real estate and oceanfront homes.
Surprising the city of Portland does not have many homes that are directly on the ocean and only a limited number that have views of the ocean.
Currently there are 36 properties for sale that have water or ocean views – 21 single family homes and 15 condos. Some of the homes are located on islands in Casco Bay. The most common are Peaks and Great Diamond. These islands are accessible only by boat. (There is a ferry line that provides year round service to many local islands. For more information on the islands in and around Portland visit Casco Bay Islands.
List prices include a very wide range, from a high of $1,850,000 for a single family home located directly on the ocean. The mean price for a home is $379,000 and $349,000 for a condo.
During the last six only 6 single family homes with water views have sold in Portland while 16 condos have sold.
