Hidden Gems

By Sean Patrick O'Feery, November 5, 2019

Deep in South East Portland is a condo development that will surprise you, it’s called the Wade Park Estates.
This is going to sound like a sales pitch, but keep in mind I’m not currently selling a unit there. I have helped to sell one of the condos and just recently had clients purchase a home there.   I  have some recent, first hand experience with the HOA and the homes. This gem is in a location that you might not expect… at all. As you turn off one of the east sides main thoroughfares, Powell St, it quickly gets quiet and residential.  By the time you turn into the Wade Park Estates, you’re tucked away. It is a wooded area with condos that naturally blend in with the park like grounds. There are over 300 mature pine trees on site.
Every home either has a deck and an outdoor porch and all condos are generously sized.
The price point is usually in the low $200k and the HOA is strong with dues at about $500/mo.
If you’re looking to downsize or find a place to call home feel free to let me know. I’d love to share this little gem with you!!
