Even if you are not quite ready to sell yet,
or are just thinking about possibly selling your home,
I can help provide you, your family or friends
with the information you need to make
the best decisions possible.
If you are considering selling your home
outside of the Lewiston/Auburn area,
I will be happy to speak with you about
your particular situation and refer you
to a trusted real estate agent who can best meet your needs.

Ask Maine Home Seller

Is there a 3.8% real estate “sales tax” created in health care bill? 

There is neither a real estate “sales tax” nor a real estate transfer tax under any federal law. The Internet has generated several viral items describing such a tax. Those Internet postings are totally false. The 2010 health care legislation did create a new 3.8% tax, but it applies only to a limited group of taxpayers. 

Search Maine Homes Sold Data

Previously, this information was only available to real estate agents and appraisers.  The Maine Real Estate Information Service (MREIS) has now made this valuable information available to the general public.

Finding out what other homes in your area have sold for is the first step.  Next, a side by side comparison of sold comparable homes needs to be analyzed and adjusted for amenities and features in order to find the best sale price for your home.

We call this a CMA:  Comparative Market Analysis.  Give me a call if you would like a free CMA for your home.
