Black Friday, Big Box Stores Offer Early Morning Special Product Pricing If You Get Up Early Enough.
How great a shape are you in, how much patience do you have to shop the day after Thanksgiving... Black Friday? Do you have an antsy feeling thinking you are missing out on a deal? That you should set the clock for 3am, head to bed early to be one of the brave souls armed for a deal at a local Walmart, Target, Kmart store?
Nevermind that maybe there are only 4 of those items you seek like the Holy Grail at that store and the lines. You still would feel like a proud holiday warrior heading out in to the parking lot as the sun rises with a Blue Ray dvd player under your arms for $75 that retails for $300 normally.
What are your Christmas shopping plans for Black Friday, one of the biggest holiday retail days of the year? Happy Holidays. Hope your Christmas shopping plans for this friday, Black Friday, go as planned!

We were successful in our application for RI’s Public Relations Grant. We have established a very exciting and pro-active Friendship Exchange Committee. Our GSE Committee has selected the team leader for this years GSE with Brazil and a call has gone out to the clubs to nominate a Past District Governor to sit on the Nominating Committee for the next RI Director.

Maine on your mind, in your dreams.
You have figure it out by now, life is short. Maine is where you want to be. Have been mentally for some time now. So now that you see the opportunity to make the move, where to, which property? Start out small...like a 17 acre Maine farm..with a large sided home, barn.$90's. Okay, that would be enough to make you happy, but there's one more thing. This property in Haynesville Maine borders a river..a large Mattawamkeag River.
The town of Haynesville Maine is the place Dick Curliss wrote about in the country song. About the lonely stretch of woods in Northern Maine where if they buried all the truckers lost in those woods, there would be a tombstone every mile. Those deer infested woods full of wildlife. And the local population of Haynesville? 136 people. Grand Lake is not far away. The towns around this are T R unorganized ones. Just woods...more woods. $90's!
Watch the Maine farm video.
Ask lots of questions.
Maine Real Estate Information

In Maine, you see lots of grand older homes designed for larger families. Some even have servant quarters and an extra carriage house addition for in laws, gram and grampy.
Many of these dinosaurs are cut up, doors closed off to make them multi family rental units. This home did not undergo that kind of Frankenstein operation. At birth, during construction, the plans called for a brick solid, corner lot fourplex. Not something changed over the best they could to make it in to one. Scope out the 4 unit real estate video. Ask lots of questions. Four stall garage/carport too! Laundry hook ups and storage in the walk out cellar too! Looking for a multi family money making property? $199,email@example.com 207.532.6573

Riding your horse in Maine, your kids having a pony or two too.Black and white cows out grazing among the apple trees in the two orchards. Brook, ponds, view. Rolling 88 acres of fields, pasture, mixed woods. Quiet side road and talk about scenery. This Maine victorian farmhouse with 3 baths has a V I E W and is near many lakes. Drews Lake is just over the hill. Enjoy the Maine farm video. Updated everything from heating, wiring, windows, roof...and check out the third floor master bedroom / bath. Ask lots of questions. $299,500.
You just figured out the eight thousand dollar tax credit to buy a home by the end of November and now what. An extension, and modification of what you knew to broaden the program. Scope out the new $6500 twist tax rebate highlights
The Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009 has established a tax credit of up to $6,500 for qualified move-up/repeat home buyers (existing home owners) purchasing a principal residence after November 6, 2009and on or before April 30, 2010 (or purchased by June 30, 2010 with a binding sales contract signed by April 30, 2010).
Know the ins and outs as a Maine real estate broker and help your sellers move houses, buyers get in to their own residence. I have seen banks jammed and bottle necks in shuffling paperwork in the scurry to get Maine home loans closed by the end of the month so the extension should give ME appraisers, Maine bankers a little breathing room, relieving some of the pressure.

The Houlton Maine home is sided, has an acre wrapping around it. Plenty of storage in rear shed and outbuildings. Watch video. And lots of traffic on US Rt 1 if you want to capitalize on it by selling a product, peddling a service. $60's. But an extra 3 acres and grow vegetables, sell them roadside stand wise. Extra land $20's.
Aroostook County is on the Canadian New Brunswick border, at the gateway to the Atlantic Provinces. Call 207.532.6573 Log on www.mooersrealty.com Learn about Maine.

You don't need a lot of money to buy a Maine home.
Understanding the sea of intials, the HUDs, FHAs, VA's and the programs offered thru Rural Development (RD)for a home loan can make your head swim. A Maine small business administration loan, an SBA financing plan can seem incredibly complicated at first glance when you shop for the mom and pop grocery, that multi unit complex.
But you don't need to know all the program subtle differences. Just need to partner with a reputable Maine real estate broker and link up with a Maine real estate banker you feel comfortable with. To study the home buying options. With Maine land, many hobby farms and lots of ME waterfront properties for sale, owner financing to fit your budget can be an easy, home made option. What can you handle for a down payment, what monthly payment fits your real estate budget? Maine real estate, your best solid investment and unlike stocks that can disappear in value over night, it's always here to enjoy, come back to over and over. Maine, what are you waiting for?
Traveling To The Maine Woods, To Spend Time At A Log Hunting Cabin, To Snowsled And Ski Down A Hill, Across A Field..
Sports greats like baseball star Ted Williams, Presidents like Teddy Roosevelt, George Bush Sr and Jr, and many Hollywood stars have headed to Maine frequently to hunt, fish, sail, play golf and get away from the throngs of people surrounding them in their day jobs.
What's the attraction to this place called Maine? Two sides of the coin that attract, keep folks coming year after year. Simple list on one side of what we have here. Clean waterfront, unspoiled deer infested woods, bluer skies, brighter stars, fewer but friendlier people. And plenty of wide open space with 11 people per square mile, the 4th lowest crime state honors.
On the other side of the coin, it's what we don't have. Besides safety with the low, no crime status in Maine, especially Northern Maine's Aroostook County, there is no traffic. And the scenic US Rt 1, 2, 2A and under used Interstate 95 that connects in Houlton Maine to the Trans Canada highway in to New Brunswick and the Atlantic Provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Labrado and beyond, make getting around easy. Not wall to wall people here because Maine is a little further up the pike, at the beginning of peace and quiet, at the end of hustle bustle.
Come up for Maine fall deer hunting season. Take back a Maine Christmas tree and some lobsters, clams, a bag of ME potatoes. See a Maine lighthouse or two on the way up. Try Maine out for winter recreation like snowsledding, down hill and cross country skiing. Take in a hockey game or two and lace on some skates for that exercise your doctor keeps reminding you of needing. Plan that vacation that is way way over due. Make it a getaway to Maine.
Come on one of the nearly 100 cruise ships that park off our coast. To get wet, enjoy one of six thousand lakes, or a spot on a beach along the hundreds of miles of rugged, rock bound Maine coast. Make Maine a habit. Bike it, hike it, sample it and make it a yearly tradition. Once Maine gets in to your system, your heart will never leave. For low cost Maine real estate to land here often, to enjoy a second vacation home away from home, you have lots of affordable options.
Maine, It's Plain And Simple, Not Like This Everywhere Else, Anywhere Else.

Okay, in 1957 in Houlton Maine, living, working and being raised in a family here in Southern Aroostook was special.
The new high school was coming, the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad had a local presence with offices and executives right here in Southern Aroostook County. Ricker College was in its hay day.
Trips to the many area lakes, like the Pavilion at Nickerson Lake where the Houlton Community Golf Course is located were part of summer. Local farms and wood cutters were active and anything you needed, you could find on the local level in Houlton Maine.
Being on the Canadian border means trips to New Brunswick, to Old Home Week in the old park off the bridge and on a river island near Woodstock. Helping local potato farmers harvest the crop, local youth learned work ethic, earned spending money. Houlton Maine, especially in the late 1950's was a special place to live, to be from. Would you like a piece of Houlton Maine for yourself, to sample a friendly small town?
