Livability and income potential

By Jessica LeDoux, January 15, 2021

Molly was on the hunt for a home she could thrive in with her kids, within a certain driving distance to the primary locations of their lives. Some thoughtful strategy around her desired commute time radius left open the possibility of moving to different neighborhoods in Portland. Molly was also interested in a home with long term investment potential. Sometimes the second you jump into the market the right one hits, and such was the case when Molly recognized the potential in a 1911 Craftsman with an oversized garage, seemingly MADE for an ADU conversion. This home was too good to let slip away, so she played her strongest cards in a highly competitive scenario and it paid off!
