Beach Retreat — Best Deal in Manzanita — Looking for Love

By Dave Leach, April 8, 2018

Ever wonder why a house does not sell? This charming 1,260 square foot house was one of those who lingered on the market looking for someone to love it. It has great bones and was located in the golf course neighborhood on one of the sweetest streets. Why no love? Sometimes things just do not make sense.  When Theo and Shelby came along I was showing them fixers for $350K. Then I said there is one house that is in great shape and at a great price. Location 10 minute walk to the village and 5 minute walk to the beach. Come on does it get better? They agreed and saw the value! We made an offer that got accepted with no counters. Easy transaction as the buyers were great to work with, the seller and listing agent were great to work with as well. Sometimes a deal just comes together and feels right. The obvious choice for a solid house at a great price was right here and many people just walk on by and do not take notice. I am so happy for Theo and Shelby as they got the best little beach cottage in Manzanita this spring. Dave Leach, Broker Living Room Realty at the coast in Manzanita —  503-704-0946.

Dave worked in academic publishing and library information management industries for years making information available to wide audiences for decision making.

Thirteen years ago he left San Francisco for the Pacific Northwest drawn by the beauty, clean beaches, outdoor adventures, and the relaxed spirit.
