These 10 homes were the most expensive 2021 sales in York County, Maine

YORK COUNTY, Maine — Lower than usual housing inventory coupled with the increased demand of buyers hopeful to make “Vacationland” their home have led to another unprecedented year, one of Maine’s historical highs for the real estate market, said Maine Association of Realtors President Aaron Bolster.
There were 33% fewer homes for sale in November 2021 compared to 2020 and 59% fewer than November 2019. However, demand remained “extraordinary for Maine’s residential real estate,” Bolster said in a press release.
Home prices rose 11% this year and the number of residential real estate transactions was 4% above the same time period in 2020, according to Bolster. Nationally, prices rose by nearly 15%, Bolster said.
“The high demand for Maine residential real estate is stymied by the tight supply of homes for sale across our state,” Bolster said. “Move-in ready homes are in extremely high demand and qualified buyers are ready to purchase.”
