This year I have had the pleasure of helping a number of folks choose condos/lofts as their real estate choice in Portland.  They typically are choosing it as a pied-a-terre, because they have another home elsewhere.

Most, not all, are choosing the city condo or loft as their winter home of choice.

They seek out the city because of its high walkability score ( that allows for enjoyment of the arts, symphony and trendy restaurants close by.  Portland, Maine has a vibrant year round community and these retirees want that sustainable lifestyle that they can count on.  Another factor is the high quality of the medical system here in Portland Maine.

In my next blog I will highlight the questions that retirees need to ask themselves to make a successful purchase.
