We are looking for a homestead in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire or New York.
10 acres or more would be great, 3 bedrooms, a horse barn (which we could build if there wasn't one) and maybe another for goats chickens etc.It would not need to be owner financed. My husband would be willing to travel an hour or so to get to work but closer would be better. We have about 45,000 to work with and our goal is Debt Free!HilltopDaisy said:Guest, I think that if you give us more info on what you'd like to own, we'd be better able to help. Do you need a certain # of acres, bedrooms, outbuildings, etc.? Must it be owner-financed? Near a city so you can commute to a job?
The Bangor area is affordable, with more jobs than downeast. Northern Maine is extremely affordable, with lots of acreage and homes for sale, but you're basically limited to hospital work, teaching, and other jobs like thatnot much manufacturing. There are a couple of towns up there that desperately need lawyers, but I don't know what your husband does for work.Unregistered said:washington county Maine is pretty cheap and on the coast but as always jobs, jobs jobs. Gotta go to Ellsworth area (for work) within an hour nice area. People are nice you won't get "burnt out" up there as someone mentioned on another post, just leave city attitudes behind, things move rather slow! Plenty of options for work though you can always go north to presque isle aswell. Always wanted to open a B&B near Bar harbor ( which Ellsworth is near ) Very busy place in season lots of tourist dollars.
