NoPo Bungalow just in time

By Living Room Realty, August 27, 2018

Shawn and Nadja came to me from a wonderful friend and client (who they also happened to be crashing with) looking for their first home together. They also had a rock solid, unmovable deadline with a baby on the way, and a home birth on the wishlist!

What they didn’t have, was a solid idea of what neighborhood or era of home they wanted to end up in. Just that they wanted the home be move in ready, and garden friendly. So we did some rapid exploration of neighborhoods and style of homes. They quickly focused in on North Portland new construction or freshly remodeled homes. And with the softening we’ve seen in the market, we were left with some pretty great options in their budget.

We ended up landing on a beautifully remodeled 50’s ranch, with separate living space in the basement, and the dreamiest garden. Not to mention the cleanest alley access I’ve ever seen. This super flexible

home allowed them to get a fabulous house at the top of their budget, thanks to the AirBnb income they’ll be able to count on for as long as they need it. And we managed to close just under the wire at four weeks until baby’s due date!

Whether you’ve got a super tight deadline, or all the time in the world, I’d love to help you find your dream home! Give me a ring or send over an email to to sit down for a meeting!
