If you’re looking to downsize and buy a retirement property, consider Brunswick, Maine.
Voted one of the Top 25 Places to Retire by CNNMoney, Brunswick is your ideal New England town with lots of mom and pop shops and a village green. In the summer there’s farmer’s markets and festivals, and in the winter there’s an ice skating rink. With the coastline close by, Brunswick has it all.
The median home price is around $199,000, and Brunswick is home to Bowdoin College, giving the town a nice touch. Plus, Bowdoin offers auditing classes for locals free of charge.
“And for an annual fee of $40, newcomers and old-timers alike can join the Association of Bowdoin Friends for such perks as discounted tickets to concerts and sporting events, borrowing privileges from the university library, and more.”
