Unwanted Tiny House Becomes a Cute & Desirable Home!

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1440 sf | SOLD $505,000 | 11037 38th Ave NE | MLS#1387022 Getting this home to market was definitely a team effort that started with a friend of Kelly's referring the seller to Blue Pacific Real Estate. The seller owned it for nearly 30 years. It certainly fit the description of "home with lots of potential". The property had some re-development potential so we first shopped the opportunity to our builder community.
