Sometimes You Get a Second Chance

By Marissa Sainz, September 14, 2019

Every once in a while the stars align and you get a second chance at the right house.  Ira and Ella emailed me about a home in SE Portland that they saw at an open house and loved.  The one problem is they were leaving two days later for a month long European vacation.  We discussed the hurdles they may face when purchasing a home while out of the county and in the end they decided to hold off.

Just two months later a home in the same townhome complex came to market.  There are only four in the complex, so this was extraordinary.  This one was also and end unit, but had a few more updates than the last one.  Ira and Ella wrote an offer and were under contract within the first week on market.

While going through the purchase process on the SE Portland home they decided to put their current home on the market to try to sell before the end of the year.  Buying, selling and moving with two young kids these two are rockstars!
