Piscataquis County’s real estate market sees highest sales since 2007

The real estate market in Maine’s least populated county was robust during 2020.

While final year-long statistics from Maine Real Estate Information, Inc., won’t be released until Jan. 22, property sales in Piscataquis County through the end of November already had exceeded the year-long total for 2019.

Sales in the county — with its population of approximately 16,800 — for January through November 2020 totaled 413 properties, according to Maine Real Estate Information, which does business as Maine Listings. That compares to 344 properties sold during all of 2019 and is the most for any year in that county since at least 2007, exceeding the previous high during that span of 350 in 2018.
