Coastal Maine 2009 Housing Year in Review


The focus of this coastal Maine real estate market report  is on the lower mid coast region including Bath, Brunswick, Freeport, Phippsburg, Georgetown and Arrowsic.   The median sold price for the region as a whole in 2009 was 228K, down about 9% from 250K in 2008.  Thanks in large part to the strong 2nd half of the year, volume remained relatively unchanged, actually up 2% from 2008 levels.    The City of Ships, Bath Maine saw the largest swings in volume, up 50% whilst the coastal waterfront peninsulas of Phippsburg, Georgetown and Harpswell were hit the hardest with volume down about 20%.  The real estate market of Brunswick Maine is the largest in the region accounting for approximately 1/3 of all volume.   The time it took to sell a home aka the Days on Market (DOM) was down about 3% for the entire region with Bath seeing a 49% decrease helping to lead the way.
