Hi everyone: I am thinking of a possible move to Maine, the Portland area sometime in late 2008 probably. I am going to Portland in 2 weeks for a few days to get a feel for the city. I have heard wonderful things about it and am looking forward to the trip. Anyway I am starting to do my research and I would be looking for a small house in the $250-300,000 price range, preferably in the mid $200's would be nice. I don't need anything fancy just something nice that I could call my own. I also would not be bound to Portland city itself, so my question to you wonderful Mainers is can you name a few towns that are within 20 miles or so of Portland that are nice communities? And do you think it would be possible to find a house in my price range? Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
Steve

I highly recommend Scarborough. I loved living there. It was an easy commute into Portland for work and has its own beaches.

thanks so much for the quick replies! I will check out the suggested towns. I had heard about Falmouth and Freeport, that they were great towns within commuting distance to Portland, but its nice to have a few other towns to check out as well. thanks again!
