Maine's Real Estate Market Is Hot!
Is it a Buyer's Market or a Seller's Market?


A balanced marked typically has about 6 months of inventory on the market. 

A Seller's Market is when there is not enough inventory to meet the demand of the market. When you fall below 6 months of inventory on the market, you have a Seller's Market.

A Buyer's Market is when the supply of property exceeds the demand of buyers. When there is more than 6 months of inventory on the market, you have a Buyer's Market.

So what is the market doing in Maine? 
It depends on where you are! The market is so different from area to area, it could be a Buyer's Market in one county and a Seller's Market in another. 

  • Androscoggin County - Seller's Market - 4.3 months of inventory
  • Cumberland County - Seller's Market - 3.4 months of inventory
