Saco Real Estate
Saco is located in York County, just south of Scarborough and about 10 miles from Portland, and is home to over 18,000 residents, Ferry Beach State Park, and Thornton Academy, a private school serving grades 6-12. The city experiences a great deal of tourist activity in the summer due to Ferry Beach State Park, a number of amusement and water parks, and the fact it borders Old Orchard Beach. Saco is also very convenient as a stop on The Downeaster Amtrak Train, which provides transportation between Portland and Boston. The University of New England in Biddeford is about 4 miles from town.
Factory Island in Saco was a major textile manufacturing center in the early to mid-1800’s. While times were prosperous there was great real estate development and thus many years later there are a number of Victorian, Greek Revival, and Federal style homes that remain and are on the National Historic Register.
Saco real estate offers an array of options to home buyers from city living to rural country side, as well with higher end waterfront homes near Camp Ellis to more affordable single family homes ideal for a first time home buyer. Whether one is looking to purchase a home in a neighborhood or in the country on multiple acres, Saco offers something for everyone, and the convenient location and accessibility to Portland, the Portland Jetport, and Boston make it a wonderful place to call home.
