Originally from Portland, Liz was excited to bring her husband David and their son Jack to the Pacific Northwest. With family in town to stay with, they hit the ground running when looking for their new house.
After writing just one offer, this happy, young family found their forever home in the Hollywood district—and we got their big 1913 Craftsman for $30,000 under the listing price!
With easy access to downtown via the MAX, their new home is close to the local library and public parks. It has a lovely backyard and a big front porch, and is situated on a tree-lined street, with a walk score of 90 and a bike score of 99! As an added bonus, it has the perfect garage for parking and charging their electric car and storing their bikes. They’re excited to explore their new neighborhood!
As part of our due diligence, we thoroughly inspected the house. With a new roof, new sewer, and new radon system, we didn’t find many issues, except for some creosote buildup in the wood burning fireplace chimney. Liz and David have already had that issue handled by a professional. The house was in great shape. We even brought in a contractor to discuss potential remodeling ideas. This extensive information gathering helped them move forward with the house confidently.
While they couldn’t the keys before Thanksgiving like we hoped, there’s plenty to be thankful for about this new home!
