Finding, Buying & Keeping Your Maine Home

The Maine Bureau of Consumer Credit Protection recently published a 40 page guide entitled “DOWNEASTER Common Sense Guide – Finding, Buying and Keeping Your Maine Home.”

As the economy has slowly emerged from the recession that began with the financial melt-down in the fall of 2008, this timely guide offers a brief history of the housing-related events leading up to the crash, the intervening years, and a common sense approach for not repeating those same mistakes.
