Albert and Charles’ New Home

By Living Room Realty, October 26, 2018

Congratulations on your new home, Albert and Charles!

Albert, a friend and fellow rugby player with the Portland Lumberjacks, had lived in his one bedroom, classic Buckman condo for 11 years and he, and his partner, Charles, were at the point where they needed more space to grow as a family.

With dreams of barbecues in the backyard, relaxing evenings spent in the hot tub, and sharing meals with their family & friends in the dining room, they started their house hunting process.

This would be Charles’ first time as a homeowner, and more importantly their first home together, so we wanted to make this as exciting and positive an experience as possible. We saw quite a few properties: mold castles, critter dens, and our fair share of ‘underwhelming’; they had all but resigned themselves to the prospect of a “fixer” that still left a lot to be desired.

One Sunday I got a text from Albert saying they wanted me to go and see a home they had checked out at an open house. I went over and was delighted to find the home was pristine and preserved with tasteful fixtures and Albert’s most important criteria: level floors.

The home was “priced to sell” with warning signs of multiple offers. Knowing that this was the right home for them, Albert and Charles made the decision to submit a bid above ask and the seller responded with an accepted offer.

I can’t wait to see how they make it their own!
