I'm in Milo Maine which is 15 minutes to Brownville junction. I would like to sell my house, but need money to finish fixing a home I bought in Dover Foxcroft. If you might be interested in buying mine, I could pay rent after closing till my other home is fixed, probably June. Also, if you needed longer, I could get someone trust worthy to rent it. A home like mine brings in around 700-750 a month. See it on craigslist.org 9 Pleasant St Milo ME

Renting in small towns can be tricky. Quality tenants are hard to find and the rents are low. I have seen house rent for as little as $400 per month. I own 6 houses that I rent between Brownsville and Millinocket. I have family in Millinocket that handle the rentals for me, so I know the market. I would suggest screening any prospective tenants really well. If you don't have a particular property in mind, I would be glad to help, maybe even sell you one of mine.

The rental market has picked up in many markets.

With so many homes being sold as short sales, there are a good number of previous home owners looking to rent.

Best of luck to you!

Hello Pnelli22. Yes, there are plenty of people looking to rent in the Brownville Maine area; however rent prices are lower up here due to the slower economy and of course if you are buying to live in the home futuristicly, it will be important for you to do careful screening to ensure you find a tenant who will take care of your property like it is their own.

I run a property maintenance company in Dover-Foxcroft which is 2 towns south and can assist with seasonal services (mowing, snowplowing, etc) in the interim, as well as small scale property management for getting you a decent renter if you choose to go that route as well.
