Land values vary for many reasons. There are several lots for sale in the Hollis, Buxton area. Including one 4.4 acre lot for 48,000. I would need more specifics in order to give you a better idea of the cost . ... more

Land is selling if it is priced for the market. Lady Slipper Lane is a nice private road centrally located between Dock Square and Route 1. The requirements for splitting the land depends on the zone, whether it is part of a primary residence, and numerous other factors. Email me or give me a call should you be interested in talking about this.
Thank you.

I would be happy to research that question for you. Certainly the price of square footage will depend on location and condition. I will email my research to you.

FYI. I have managing the unit from the west coast for 8 years. Thus the reason why I am unsure of the market. Thank you for any insights.

Hi Ellen,

There is no set percentage. The list price may be high, low, or right at current market value. The best way to know what you should offer is to have your Realtor do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) on the property using SOLD comps within a 1 mile radius of the property (the closer, the better) that have SOLD within the last 3 months. This will give you current market price and this is what you should base your offer on - not on list price.

Good luck.

Hi Kennebunk!

You can go to your Town Office and ask the Tax Assessor for a Tax Abatement form. You should seek the assistance of a qualified Realtor in your area to provide you with Comparable Sales in your town that you can submit with your Abatement Request. If you need a referral to a Realtor in Kennebunk, let me know. I would be more than happy to help you! Give me a call at (207) 975-9330!

Blessings!! Steve Dyer

With a 3 bed/1 bath and no garage and depending on condition (looks like it did need some work when last on the market), you would get around $1100 - $1500 a month. If you allow pets (I only take dogs no cats) and are lucky you may get a military family. There is a shortage of rentals right now. I rent and manage many units and am able to get more money right now as nothing else on the market. I have a rental unit on Main st near the Mexican restaurant in Kittery, 2 bed/1 bath with basement/1 car garage, getting $1100 a month plus utilities. Good luck Bonnie Dridi @ Prudential Verani Realty - (603) 944-8195 ... more

Hi Karen,

Yes, in general contemporary homes are less valuable in New England than more traditional styles like capes & colonials . All else being equal (location size, amenities, condition), maybe 10-15%. Its hard to nail down. Location & Condition have the most significant impact on value in this market.

Good luck,
Send an email if you have any more questions.

Hi Bernard,

Maine Statistics are not broken out by towns, but rather by county. In York County, we experienced a 11% decline in number of properties sold in 2008 as compared to 2007. The median sales price dropped 7.5% in 2008 as compared to 2007 in York County. Overall, there are some "affluent" towns along the coastline in York and Cumberland Counties that will always maintain property values well. Kennebunk is one of those towns.

Is there a property that specifically interests you? Feel free to contact me directly with more questions @207-615-1663.
