Transforming A Dekum Delight

By Living Room Realty, November 9, 2018

Living Room Realty’s Kim Parmon is taking on her very own investment property in the ever so desireable Dekum Triangle! You may know her as the one to talk to for help if your client is interested in a bank-owned property or the one to go to for auction advise. And that’s because she’s found her knack in this industry: investments. She knows how to find those diamonds in the rough and can see the potential in even the roughest of conditions.

Following a failing sewer scope inspection that resulted in a party sewer line with the neighbor’s and a chase which led to a series of dead ends, we made it to the finish line and can begin restoring this beauty to its former glory!

In Portland’s shifting market, creating a lasting first impression for a buyer is everything. A continuing conversation Kim and I have is how important the design piece of the puzzle is. Yet, can easily be missed when it comes to flipping homes. When you’re almost to the finish line and you’re just ready to be done, it’s easy to go with agreeable grey. There’s a fine line between giving a home too much character that it’s unappealing to the masses and providing just enough character that someone can easily imagine themselves there. So what makes a home speak to a buyer? The story it tells. That’s what people fall in love with. The idea of their little one playing in the garden or setting the Thanksgiving dinner table that can fit your family of 20 plenty. Moral of the story is, Kim is no novice to the investment game. She understands this; nay she’s nailed this again and again! So, for all those Scandinavian, Mid-Century style lovin’ buyers out there, come Spring this fantastic flip will be ready for a new author to write its story.
