Real Estate Report: Maine's hottest real estate market
STATEWIDE (WGME) -- New census numbers out Thursday show the fastest growing county in Maine is Cumberland County, where the population rose 0.7 percent.
That may not be too surprising, as greater Portland grows, but when it comes to home sales, those figures appear to tell a different story.
The hottest real estate market, according to one group, isn't even in southern Maine.
The Rob Edgerley Team at Keller Williams crunched the numbers, and found the largest percentage increase in home sales year over year.
They determined that Maine's hottest market is Bangor.
The Keller Williams team says with 319 home sales in 2015, the Bangor market saw an increase of 26 percent.
While those buyers get settled in to their new homes, only time will tell what markets are sizzling in 2016.
