Hi Eric -Like most communities, the resort parks were hit by the last few years. However, this is indeed, a good time to pick up something in these parks before the prices start increasing again. In Wells, in 2002 and 2003, I sold the same double wide in one of the year round parks for 60k two years in a row. In 2007, I sold the same unit for 74,900. If I were to place it on the market now, depending on condition, I would likely place it at around 55-60k based on some of the comps (2003 price point is pretty typical around here right now). So, are we back to 2006/2007 prices? No. Did they lose value? Yes. BUT, as the market rebounds, now would be the time to grab something, before they do go back up. I would be happy to help you do just that! Thanks - Liz Foley, The Maine Real Estate Network, 207-651-6198... more
I've lived in the Bourne Ave. area on Spring St. since 2005. There is a 50' ROW at the end of Bourne where non owners can sit on dry sand or on the tidal flats. Although the private property rights extend to the mean low tide mark, I've found that sitting or playing on the sand bar between low and high tide marks usually does not upset the owners. So, if you do not access the dry sand near/above the high tide water mark you'll probably be OK. If some owner did ask you to move, you could just move to be in front of the house next to them as it is rare for someone to complain.... more
I would suggest contacting the management companies for those communities. They may know of owner willing to sell and finance. Or send a letter to all the addresses in the community with your inquiry. Good luck... more
From Sanford Road, take Bragdon Road. Gordons Lane is on the left. It's close to Sanford Road, well before Bald Hill Road. It is a private gravel road. Please let me know if you have further questions.
Yes, indeed these are seasonal units in a park located west of RT 1. The park offers a number of amenities and certain things are included or not included with the annual fees. There are a number of important details involved in purchasing a mobile home.

Hi and thanks for your questions. When looking to purchase a property, it's good to not only know the fees and pet rule, but also to know how the fees are charged (in this case, quarterly), what services the fee covers, what other costs are associated with the property, and all of the rules and regulations (for example the 28-day rule) and how well they suit you. If you are looking for expert assistance and negotiating skills to help you find and buy your dream property, please give me a call.

Summer Village and Beach Dreams are different developers, the Summer Village is a better quality developer. The same developer is doing another complex after the old hayloft now boon island ale restaurant. I recommend dealing with a LOCAL agent who actually knows whats going on in the area... more
