Will in-migration halt, and if so, is this bad for Maine?

With housing prices substantially deflated across the U.S., Maine will likely see fewer retirees from New Jersey and Connecticut selling their houses and building new ones in Maine. Will this mean Maine’s population will continue to be stagnant? Can the state do anything to encourage more people to move here? Can individual communities encourage such in-migration? Should they?
