This gal looked long and hard in inner NE Portland to find the right house at the right price (plus a little more). We were so excited to pass off the keys to these first-time home buyers and are pleased to report that they found what they were looking for, an affordable home in a great location! Homes in Alberta Arts and other NE neighborhoods are selling as quickly as they list, making the finding and then buying process sometimes a little lengthy. Rejected offers are the norm and it can be pretty deflating. Patience and wherewithal are important for those wanting to live in Portland’s Eastside, but it can and does work out!
