The intent of this site is to provide relevant news, listings and information on the Portland real estate housing markets for homes.

Current Back Cove Listings:

The Portland Back Bay (technically the Back Cove) encompasses the region just North of downtown Portland. Being a tidal basin that drains out at low tide the Back Cove  offers a spectacular 3.5 mile trail that snakes around (photo of trail) the shoreline. A great place to run, walk the dog or bike around coupled with its natural beauty has resulted in a strong local real estate market and thus a wonderful place to call home.  As of January 2011,  19 single family homes and condos were listed on the market at a median price point of $249,000On the most desirable streets, just off the bay (Vannah, Clifton, Codman, Hersey, Chenery, Mackworth, Austin and George) you will be hard pressed to find a home under $275,000.   Homes directly on the cove with wonderful water views rarely come on the market, but if they do the price range will be around $500,000. The Back Bay is most similar in shape and form to Portland’s Deering neighborhood.
