I’ve long enjoyed walking past this lot at 1536 N Schofield St. It’s a little bit overgrown, but has some great mature trees on it. Portland Maps tells me it’s currently owned by the Frank A Morse Family Trust and was purchased for $22,500 in 1997. If I wanted to buy it and keep it a fun little hideaway, I’d have to pony up $210,000. I just ran some mortgage numbers and with a $5000.00 down payment and a 15 year fixed rate mortgage, I would have to pay $1900.00 per month. So I’m guessing this will be a large infill house very soon.
Ooooooooo! I said as I caught my first glimpse of the stucco siding. So pretty! And it will look great against the grey skies of winter. Assuming it ever rains again in Portland, Oregon.
