I hope you’re all gearing up for a great weekend ahead, full of sunshine and merriment before the rain returns. I’ll be spectating at the Portland Marathon (which my sister and brother-in-law are running) and hopefully putting a deal together for some amazing clients! Here’s some fun real estate news that popped up this week:
- Remodelista and Gardenista showered Portland with love this week, profiling local retailers Bee Thinking, Cloth and Goods, Pigeontoe Ceramics, Pistils Nursery and Maven Collective, eateries The Woodsman Tavern, Broder, See See Motor Coffee Co., showing us a cool kitchen remodel and garage-turned-studio project overview and offering an insider’s guide.
- An interesting article about forced insurance from lenders from The New York Times.
- Zillow has a new refinance calculator, which can help you determine whether a refinance is a good step for you.
