What can we learn from Portland’s lowest home sales?

This group of homes had a hard time with Portland home buyers for a reason. They were either close to or on a busy street, they were fixers inside and out, they had unresolved issues like mold, and were in tough locations. Location, condition, and size are some of the most important criteria for any home buyer. However, it is also true that anything will sell – for the right price.

Our Portland Buyers Team has numerous designations to help home buyers purchase short sale homes, foreclosure homes, and distressed properties in general – if they are looking for an investment project. Buyer beware! Make sure you have excellent representation. There is no end to the number of potential problems you could inherit in your next home purchase. Make sure to get that Portland home inspection and any additional recommended tests. Know your options and talk with your Portland buyers agent.

Here’s hoping these homes were fixed up by the new owners!
