5 Must See Open Houses This Weekend in Portland

Open houses are a great way to get a feel for the market. They allow you to casually enter a space, without making a specific appointment, and just check out what you can get for a certain price. As always, there’s no pressure to put in an offer – it’s okay to just be looking. But if you are interested, be prepared to put in an offer! One of the main reasons sellers have open houses is to drum up interest.

So what if you suddenly fall in love with a property after seeing it through an open house? Well, you don’t want to be caught off guard. Make sure you have a trusted buyer’s real estate agent, to start. And before that, checking out properties online first can only prepare you more for what’s to come. Virtual staging is becoming more and more popular, which is great! Given the pandemic, it’s an excellent opportunity for both sellers and buyers to minimize contact (and hassle). But at the end of the day, it doesn’t replace the experience of walking through the space that could be your future home. On that note, let’s check out 5 must-see open houses that are happening in Portland this weekend!

#1 – 4612 SE 70th Ave.

4612 SE 70TH AVE

Let’s start off with this well-priced and charming home in the Mt. Scott/Lents area. This is classic Portland living, from the covered front porch (who says it’s raining?) to the beautiful wooden floors and built-ins on the main level. Outdoors, you’ll also enjoy the perks of a detached garage and a decently sized, fenced in backyard. Indoors, enjoy a dining room and kitchen made for Pinterest. This home is charm at its finest.

#2 – 5908 SE Harold St.

Next let’s take a look at a two level home just east of the coveted Woodstock neighborhood. This is a relatively new build, and on top of that has updates such as new flooring. Walk right into a cozy living room complete with a gas fireplace. Then continue on to a spacious kitchen with plenty of counter area. Outside, a large deck beckons you to relax with a cup of coffee or tea. And there’s still plenty of yard space for all your entertaining needs.

#3 – 2395 SW Montgomery Dr.


Time for a trip to Southwest, famed for its hiking trails and quiet atmosphere. This gorgeous English cottage style home offers charm in one of Portland’s most esteemed neighborhoods. Enjoy the charm and ease of built-in storage while lounging on either floor, taking in the views of the Southwest hills from floor to ceiling windows. This home features a great kitchen with a gas range as well, for any home cooks out there. Or, if you’re more in the mood for some fresh air, check out the – not one, not two – but three layered decks.

A lot of potential comes with this property. The lower level could be converted into an ADU, for example. Regardless of what you decide to do with it, this home offers ample space and beautiful views.

#4 – 5619 NE 33rd Ave.

5619 NE 33RD AVE

Given the low inventory, we’re covering the map with our open houses this week. You’ll find this home in a quaint corner of Northeast Portland. It’s near the artsy Alberta strip, but situated in a quieter residential neighborhood of Concordia. Fernhill Park is just blocks away to the east as well.

You can see the curb appeal right away with this one, especially given the delightful paned windows. Inside you’ll find the charm continues, with period accents, a warm fireplace, and vaulted ceilings. And be sure not to miss the backyard, which is huge and comes with a shed (or garage – it’s big enough for either).

#5 – 12990 SW Park Way


Finally, let’s finish with a fantastic home in the Beaverton area. Talking bang for your buck, this home has plenty of space for a very reasonable price. At only $266 per square foot, you can have all this home has to offer.

And what does that include? For starters, a beautiful kitchen with a gas stove and granite countertops. Then there’s the finished basement. Throw in three fireplaces and an oversized garage with plenty of room for storage. And last but not least, you’re looking at a large, fenced in yard, perfect for entertaining or just enjoying the outdoors on your own.
