The BDN is exploring Maine’s housing crisis from every possible angle, from how it affects home prices, to what it means for Mainers across the state. Read our ongoing coverage here and fill out this form to tell us what you want to know. Housing values in all of Maine have gone up since the COVID-19 pandemic began, reflecting both changing living trends and nationwide rise in prices that has made it increasingly difficult for many to enter the housing market. The hikes are centered on southern Maine, the epicenter of the housing crunch, where nearly every community has seen its homes go up by $100,000 or more by median value since the pandemic began.
