Unfortunately it's public record and will most likely not be removed.

Bridgton is a 4-season vacation destination. Therefore, yes, people choose mountain locations all year.

The cottages (I believe there were 11) had been owned by a single owner for many years, who rented them out. Last year, all the cottages were put on the market for ownership.

Any properties that are close to Shawnee Peak for the winter skiiers or near the lakes make good rental properties. In addition to being a Realtor, I've also been a landlord for 11 years and haven't had any troubles renting any of my properties. Feel free to contact me at the email below if you would like more information.

Thank you for your help!

Septics are always some concern especially to our customer and client
friends from Mass since they often deal with Title 5 septic compliance issues.

Well worth having a real experienced septic inspector look at the system.
If needed a new design will run 400 and often only the leachfield needs to be
updated (bigger) not the whole system...pays to get quotes!

Highland lake is a outstanding water body and waterfront is one
of the very best investments in real estate. Don't be nervous.
Smaller septics sizes are common to updated camps...useage determines
the actual potential for problems usually. If upgrading...lot size constraints can prove
challenging due to Shoreland Zone but almost always doable with professional creative design.
Congratulations it sounds like you are on your way to some great memories here in the
Lake Region...:)

Hi Helen,
A quick snapshot of 5 homes in the last 12 months from today (12/20/12), indicates
Average listing price of $153,740 with selling price range of 94% of that figure.
Small sample group so the variables are many...:(
Foreclosure and distressed sales are skewing the figures.
Hope this helps

You should talk to a local real estate agent. There are times when a home is listed for sale, but the Seller will consider renting the home as well. The real estate agent will not charge you any fees for assisting you. The Seller/Potential Landlord will be charged a small fee for the real estate agent's services, after the rental is finalized. ... more

Hi Bethani, you can also pick up the Bridgton News and look at the "For Rent" section. There was an ad for an apartment for $550 last week. You can also check Craig's List.

Sharing a house is a great way to split costs as well. Good luck!
