Everyone loves a summer in Portland, that is why I am so excited that my clients were able to close on their adorable new home right in time for summer! They will be moving to Portland from Austin, TX and couldn’t be more thrilled! He is a Designer at Restoration Hardware and also dabbles in solar power design, while she is a Program Manager at Apple. Not only are they newlyweds, but they also just became parents!
We originally were planning to meet at the end of June to start our home search; however, they saw how fast the Portland market was moving and decided to get a head start. The first house they wrote an offer on had 14 other offers! We were close in competition, but not close enough. I would rush around town looking at houses, taking videos as I went. I found this adorable yellow house on a corner lot, but from the video they thought it was too small. We were going to pass on it, until he decided to make a quick trip up to Portland. We spent a full day looking at houses and on our last stop I brought him to the cute little yellow house. He instantly fell in love. I was so happy he was able to make it up and determine it was in fact the perfect size for them.
Three offers were received on this house, including ours. With great negotiating, persistence and communication, our offer was accepted! They get to move in and enjoy the summer months and beat the Texas heat!
Welcome to Portland!
