Houses along bike paths like the Greenbelt Walkway in Southern Maine's South Portland almost connected to the Eastern Trail, a 60+ mile section of the in of the East Coast Greenway
Are going to seem more and e-bike like these and value of real estate going up for the kind of folks who ride them.
- $600 e-bike Sondors that raised millions on crowd funding sites. sondors.com
- Covered trike called a PEBL, no license needed: better.bike/
- RadWagon cargo for family: <$1500
You want a house you can add to, insulate, solarize, etc. without battling the demons of a 100 year old two story cluster of problems, led paint, etc.
Or, buying land, but starting with a very eco efficient small house and slowly adding.
Here's an example: The Ferry Village area of South Portland is very near a great bike path, city, and beaches. And I think in the coming years...nearer.
