A Pad in Parkrose for First Time Homebuyers, Tia and Ryan!

By Emma Kemp, December 29, 2022

Buying your first home is no easy task, but you wouldn’t know it with Tia and Ryan, truly ideal buyers from beginning to end of the buying process. They knew what they wanted and trusted our team to guide them to the finish line on securing a sweet townhouse in pretty Parkrose! It had been sitting on the market within that sweet spot of just enough time – but not too long – and wrote an offer that put them in position to not have to put every last penny into their down payment. Not only were we able to get them a significant seller credit upfront (to save them on paying closing costs) but we also worked closely with their lender, Tristen Hunt of The Tristen Hunt Team to get them a rate buydown that keeps their mortgage payment affordable!

The cherry on top was successfully negotiating an additional credit towards siding repair and a BRAND NEW ROOF as we head into the rainy season in Portland.

This is what taking advantage of this market is all about!

Congratulations, Tia and Ryan (and Shelby and Ollie!), we are so ecstatic for you and we hope you enjoy your new home!
