We are considering relocating from Montana to Maine for my wife's job. Any body live there? Any information prospective residents should know? Cost of housing? Are you taxed to death? Schools? Anyplace to run a 22' Jetboat?
todays ny times[.com] has a story about the cost of living"well" in the northeast and goes on about different cities/areas cost of living apparantly they arn't talking of any one that I know but take a look at it or google portland me. also as far as the boat goes portland harbor is part of casco bay should be enough room there for one more boat or to the west is lake sabago but very congested in the summer months good luck on your move john
don't like in Portland but travel there often. Girlfriends parents live there.
All I can say for housing is a decent house in the Portland area(and most of New England within 30minutes of a city) will run about $250,000+. Housing here is rediculous. Decent Condos start about about $120,000. As for taxes I'm not sure. In NH I'm paying about $2000 a year for my about 700 sq/ft condo.
I spent a few weekend in portland during the summer near the waterfront and pubs my plan was to have a beer in each of the pubs but either I'm slowing down or their are too many bars good working class people there but the state and city are now run by the politically correct snobs at times they compare portland as the sister city to boston 20 miles out of the city you can be in the woods or the real world good luck on your move
