From SE to NE Portland -They found the one!

By Living Room Realty, June 28, 2019

After doing long distance for 18 long months, Michael and Shelby have found their first home in North Tabor! While planning a wedding they handled this process like pros.

The journey was not one without bumps along the way. After multiple bidding wars and back-up offers, they did not lose hope in finding the right home. With the focus being in SE neighborhoods, I was surprised to have a NE home come up as a home of interest.

We scheduled the appointment and within moments of walking through the doors, they were planning how they would decorate. This was the one.

Though they loved the home, the price wasn’t quite right. After some negotiating, we presented a strong offer with ideal terms.  We had an accepted offer for lower than asking (yay!). Before we could have our inspector go out, we were notified that our back-up offer for the previous home was accepted. Since it was a backup offer, they were not obligated to move forward. This left them with a choice to make.

Having the choice solidified their confidence in their move-in-ready NE home. We were moving forward. The inspection revealed that the sewer line had issues, however after three professional opinions, the sellers took on the cost of replacing the entire sewer. Happy buyers to say the least.

They are looking forward to enjoying their first years of married life in their beautiful home with a backyard made for entertaining. Congratulations to my good friends Michael and Shelby!
