Adding Space…In Style!


One of the things I dedicate myself to when getting a house ready to be sold is the preparation. And, sometimes, that's what a new homeowner will take on with their dream house. Especially in Northeast Portland where I live and work, historic homes and their restoration is a common topic. 

Aram Irwin is a historic home designer. He has outlined the levels of what it takes to renovate from least to most involved and expensive. It's an interesting and worth the time to look at his style levels and strategies.

It’s Saturday…in St. Johns

It's Saturday, and weekends are for fun! When was the last time you took a stroll in St. Johns? I really do love the St. Johns neighborhood, and now is a great time to be out in it. 

Take some time and wander the cute shops…

And while you're at it…. now is a perfect time to stop by City Farm to give your garden a plush boost!

And when you're done with all your walking and shopping, stop by the local Stumptown and try your favorite flavor. 

Go to St. Johns this weekend and check it all out! There's so much more….

Northeast Portland Snapshot

As I write this post, Northeast Portland is a happening spot! I suspect it always will be the case, but spring is an especially hot market. Inventory is low, and buyers are looking like crazy for that specific place to call home. 

The graph below is a snaphot of the last year in the Northeast Portland real estate market. Although every neighborhood is a subset of the larger market and worth taking a look at separately (contact me for specific areas and/or criteria), the overview always paints an interesting picture.

May Home “To Do” Checklist

One of the things I love best about real estate is preparing a home to sell. And, as a homeowner, proactive maintenance is an important piece of the puzzle. This checklist has several ideas for this spring month. Maybe it will inspire other ideas as you look around your home.
