Maine was 33rd in US House Price Appreciation in 2007.

Maine real estate sales were ranked 33rd out of all 50 US states in home price appreciation in 2007. There were three Maine cities in the top 20 appreciating cities and none in the 20 cities that lost the most value. The three cities with strong real estate appreciation in Maine are Portland, South Portland, and Biddeford. The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) produced an 88 page reports that says Maine real estate sales were number 33 in the list of states that had "...positive four-quarter appreciation" in 2007...".  The report has lots of positive information, but it hasn't been widely publicized.  The list of states and their ranking by appreciation over 2007 is on page 25 of the .pdf report.  It seems that Maine is one area of the country that should continue to see growth in the real estate market.

80% of the United States had POSITIVE appreciation in 2007 according to the chart page 25 and 26 of the report.  And, of the 291 cities monitored in the report, 65% of US cities had appreciation.  Too bad these statistics aren't being widely reported.  This report uses a few different set of statistics to show different aspects of the housing market.

United States real estate still provides one of the best available forms of investment for people looking to grow wealth over the long run. Real Estate professionals should be using blogging, newslettering, pressreleasing, emailing, and any other useful method to get this positive news out!

The report can be found at:  http://www.ofheo.gov/media/pdf/4q07hpi.pdf
