Ocean View

  • Waterfront-MainPhoto

    So you want to live on the water? What does that mean to you? For some people, especially here in Maine, it means oceanfront. For others it may mean lakefront and some are not picky, they just want water, even a stream will do! Obviously the cost of buying a lakefront home might be much less than that of a shorefront home, especially if you intend to buy a “camp”—what we Mainers call a seasonal cottage on a lake or pond. Will this be your primary residence or a summer getaway? Do you have a boat? A yacht? A kayak or canoe? I’ll tell you one thing, if you plan to swim you might want to stick with a home on a lake or pond; the ocean temperatures around Acadia National Park, in Bar Harbor, Maine, rarely get above 62 degrees Fahrenheit…and that’s in AUGUST! These are all things you might consider before searching for waterfront property, but there are many more things to think about.
