Gorham Real Estate
Gorham is located west of Portland and Westbrook, as well as bordering Scarborough. The town is home to over 16,000 residents and the home to the main campus of The University of Southern Maine. The Gorham Economic Development Corporation continues to work to promote the growth and economic activity of the region, and maintain the strength of the town as noted by its solid employment numbers.
Gorham real estate continues to experience steady growth as indicated by the 25% growth in number of households from 1990 to 2000 according to census figures and the Town of Gorham, and its most recent rank in the Top 5 in single family home units sold among Greater Portland communities. Home buyers certainly appreciate Gorham for the characteristics of the town center and village atmosphere that many look for in relocating to small town America. Yet, at the same time the location offers access to Portland in 15-20 minutes, to Sebago Lake in 25-35 minutes, or the mountains to ski and snowboard in the winter in 45 minutes.
