Interesting Sales Last Week

There were 71 closed sales in condos, townhouses, and homes in Portland last week. Highlights this week are an examination of bungalows that are selling rather quickly in the north/northeast parts of Portland.

Was it the new exterior paint, the recently landscaped yard, the hardwood floors, or the built-ins that drove a buyer to the door of this 1,300 square foot bungalow in just two week’s time? Then again, it might have just been the price point for the neighborhood of Piedmont — this 1924-built home sold for $242K and $188/sf which was well below the average of $210/sf for the area (and only $7K below asking).

One price change and a month on the MLS was all it took for this English-style bungalow to get snapped up for $264K. The going price for this updated 1931 home with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 2,100 square feet was $124/sf.

7216 N Ivanhoe St

This 2-bedroom, 1-bath bungalow sold for asking of $175K within one month of list — that’s $130/sf for nearly 1,350 square feet. Recent cosmetic updates to paint and counters, plus new windows and furnace may have been selling points for this home in the St Johns neighborhood; however, I have to wonder if the new homeowners will pull up that carpet and refinish the wood floors beneath? I secretly hope so.
