Owner Tom Landry and several Benchmark clients were recently interviewed for three different segments on WGME News 13. All were focused on the current housing market and the struggles faced by buyers, sellers, and renters across the State. As evidenced in our regular statistics (see past blog posts), home prices have been rising rapidly across Portland and many areas across the State. This is just one element of several broader issues discussed in these segments.
In this long format segment, WGME took an in depth look at housing affordability in Maine. The Town Hall included interviews with realtors, developers, builders, lawmakers, and others with an interest in housing.
First-time buyers and Benchmark clients Julie Smith and Patrick Curran explain the process that led to winning out on their first home.
Benchmark seller clients Antonia and Stephen Anderson shared why the ability to rent back is making it easier on them as they search for their new home.
