Founder to close Midcoast branch of Maine Sports Report

Ron's a good guy.

ROCKLAND – It is with much thought, debate, and sadness that I have decided to close the local Midcoast branch of Maine Sports Report. The Bangor Area Maine Sports Report will continue in the Bangor area under the direction of Skip Hawkes who has been running that branch for eight years.

Here in the Midcoast the lack of funds to hire the needed people, the lack of advertising and the lack of support from people buying photos from the games have all led to this decision. It was not made easily, as this has been my baby for over 10 years now.

However, I am a believer that you have to be prepared to move on when things are not working out the way you had hoped. My goal is to do what I love doing, being a photographer, and leave the writing to someone else. I never wanted to be a journalist, it just came with the territory.

Yer Out!

Foreclosed Homes Rockland Maine 04841

Home prices are still incredibly overpriced in most parts of the country, including Midcoast Maine.

There are two basic reasons for this --- IMHO.

1. People are still buying homes that are over priced and over valued (with much larger down payments and two full time incomes).

2. People refuse to sell homes at a loss, or deep, deep loss. In other words, people have been "holding out" for the highest price for two or three years.

The problem is, real estate is not coming back to where it was in 2008 no matter what your blessed Realtor tells you. Have Realtors ever been bearish?

However, there are some deals, albeit they are NOT bottom feeder deals, but better than full retail, over priced, over valued listing prices.

I found more than 150 foreclosed and/or bank owned properties in the Midcoast. Some but not all of these are pretty good deals.

Here ya go............


Have fun and play nice :)
