Portland Property Pick of the Week | NE Portland Homes in Montavilla

Great NE Portland Homes for Sale

Each week I select a property that just makes sense to me. As an Exclusive Buyers Agent I DO NOT take listings or represent the sellers. EBA Portland, LLC represents buyers 100% of the time. I was showing homes for sale in NE Portland this week and thought to showcase a NE Portland Craftsman Home for sale.

Since I'm always looking at property, touring homes, checking listings, running comps, and watching the market. For this reason, I love to take my pick and this week we're in NE Portland looking at nice homes for sale.

Montavilla is a syllabic abbreviation of "Mt. Tabor Villa". Montavilla is a neighborhood in the NE and SE sections of Portland, Oregon.

For condition, price and location, this NE Portland Craftsman, which is a wonderful home for sale in the Montavilla Neighborhood, is my pick.

Hey Carla!  Your 71st Ave home featured is a charmer.  I've always loved the bungalows for the front porches.  Of course i'm in fairy land to think that we could sit out on our porches in the summertime here!  Have a great weekend!

Carla--Though I am not an exclusive buyer's agent, I do represent the buyer often. It is very interesting when you find these market "gems". A good buyer's agent can spot these opportunities on the market!

What a great pick!  Love the house...I'm a sucker for Craftsman's and have wanted one of my own forever. Your featured house posts are a great idea.  I bet the listing agents love you for it. I know I would!

Hi Brenda . . . I love all the bungalows and craftsman style homes in that area!

Hey Tammy -- and you know, until I wrote this post, I didn't know about the Mt. Tabor Villa assocation.  Mt. Tabor is a very lovely area too.

Hi Teri . . . I typically make that disclaimer in the "pick" blogs because I don't want anyone to think I'm advertising this as my listing.  I always have permission from the owner and/or listing agent and/or RMLS to post.  YES, good buyers' agents know how to pick 'em too!!  ;-)

Hey Laraine -- our MLS has a section for agents to yeah, or nay, blogging.  And why wouldn't a listing agent want to have their listing exposed?!?  ;-)

Hi Juli . . . it's a rehabbed beauty.  The company doing the refurbishing is amazing.  They do very good work.

Hey Marie -- thanks!!  And coming from a home stager/home refresher, I'm glad we agree!!  ;-)

Hi Michelle . . . thank you so much.  I appreciate the encouragments.

Hey Marge -- thanks but this almost picked itself, if you know what I mean!!  LOL
