Blog Buyer Found: Pristine North Portland Ranch

Found: Pristine North Portland Ranch

By Beth Bonita, August 28, 2019

I helped Dave find a home in Concordia a number of years ago, and then life changed and he needed to find a new place. We went searching high and low for the perfect home that was on the smaller side but still had room for a music studio – Dave is a songwriter/composer. It took some time, and a lot of patience, because what was coming on the market was a little lack luster. Then we found what we call the perfect “granny house.” You know the type, typically older owners who diligently maintained their home for years, regulars at the hardware store.  Sure everything might be a bit dated when in comes to style but the home is like a time capsule and everything works perfectly down to kitchen cabinet hinges. This home is the perfect example of “pride of ownership”. Even the inspector was in awe and hardly had a bad thing to say. Oh, and of course their was pristine full height basement perfect for Dave’s future music studio.


Congratulations Dave on your practically new home!
