It's no secret that the housing market is absolutely bonkers right now. Typically from what we've seen around Maine this is leaving buyers frustrated and sellers elated.

Now let us be very clear here, there is absolutely nothing wrong with owning, buying or selling a doublewide or any kind of manufactured home for that matter. It was just surprising given the age, size and acreage to see this kind of a price tag attached to this particular property.

Of course we've almost become desensitized to ordinary looking homes to be selling for prices we'd normally see on a mansion atop a hill, but still, this one seemed a bit off.

After digging a little deeper it turns out that the old adage of 'it's all about location, location, location!' is actually quite true. For example, if this home were to be for sale in Houlton, Maine, the price would probably not be what it currently is.

However, this home doesn't sit in Houlton, it sits in Bar Harbor, Maine. For those who don't know, Bar Harbor is one of the largest tourist destinations on the East Coast and is home to some of the highest property values in all of Maine.

Once it became clear where this house was located, the asking price started to seem like it wasn't that far-fetched after all.

Sitting on 1.22 acres on Crooked Road in Bar Harbor, this doublewide manufactured home features a small addition, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and was built in 1990.

At just over 1,400 square feet there is also a fireplace, a sunroom and a bonus room perfect for whatever!

Take a look at some photos of the property and, if you're interested in learning more, contact Swan Agency Real Estate.
