Grant Park Investment Property

By Bobby Curtis, September 17, 2020

Recent transplants from Brooklyn, Sha and Matt are loving their new neighborhood of Grant Park. So much so that 6 months in they started looking for another property. With their eyes on several neighborhoods through out Portland, they landed on this solid Cape Cod just across from Grant High School. Conveniently in’t also a few blocks from their house.

With 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and an unfinished basement, there is plenty of room here. The hardwood floors were recently finished, along with interior paint. It has bonus improvements like newer, fully owned solar panels on the roof of the garage, and seismic earthquakes straps. As an investment property, it is solid enough to be rented out as is right around $3,000/month, but also has room to make improvement over the years…cut to the kitchen and bath. 🙂  And at a pricepoint under $700k, there will be some upside if they make smart improvements over the years.

A down-to-earth Midwesterner hailing from the great state of Michigan, Bobby harnesses equal parts brains, brawn, and enthusiasm for every client and project.  After graduating from the University of Michigan, he began a career in the pharmaceutical industry focusing on sales, marketing, and consulting.  In those five years, he was even lucky enough to roam around Europe for short assignment in Geneva, Switzerland.  Nevertheless, the European trip came to an end and he traveled back stateside where he traded in his suit for a high-quality flannel and some Carhartt’s.  After purchasing his first house to flip, Bobby rolled up his sleeves and started in on what would become his passion – transforming houses into homes by unleashing the beauty of each unique property. Since 2010, Bobby has bought and restored several houses a year in Portland, both large and small, with great success.  Armed with extensive first-hand knowledge of house restoration, Bobby offers his clients an exceptional eye to pinpoint property potential and value.  Whether you are searching for complete fixer property or a dialed-in and buttoned-up home, he is happy to guide you through the process of finding your perfect place.  If you are selling your property, Bobby’s keen eye will help you showcase all of your property’s best features.  Because Bobby buys and sells several properties of his own every year, he better understands what it's like to be in his clients shoes. And as an experienced buyer’s agent, listing agent, and renovator, Bobby is well-versed in negotiating a great price and terms for his clients. If you’re looking to get a sneak peak of Bobby in action, you can watch him (and his mom) on an episode of First Time Flippers on the DIY Network.
