First Time Buyers Find Home in the Heart of the City

By Tyler Shotwell, December 17, 2019

Pete and Claire are living the Portland Dream! Several years ago they married atop Mt. Tabor and now are the proud owners of a true Portland classic- a 1904 Buckman! After renting for several years nearby, Pete & Claire fell in love with the atmosphere of Morrison and the bars of Belmont. Proximity to public transit and the new neighborhood they’d come to love were their main factors when the house search began. However, finding a diamond in the rough takes time and patience. While multiple offers were made, the stars aligned in mid-November when they walked into the home on Stark. Finding a house with a vintage feel but also containing multiple modern updates is a rarity and doing it on a budget is nearly impossible. However, Pete & Claire are all the proof needed to know that dreams do come true.
