In real estate, a “closing day” is always a good day for everyone! There are happy Seller’s that have sold their home and happy Buyers that are going to be moving into their new home! The process should be an easy one, but that is not always the case.
SOLD Ansley Above The Park Number 914
MyMidtownMojo.com is pleased to have helped Jim, Natalie and Emily call this stunning, three story condominium at Ansley Above The Park home! Natalie was not able to come to Atlanta on the house hunting trip, so Jim and I looked at the options and he sent photos and video back to Natalie in California. She just walked through the door and saw if for the first time this past Saturday morning! She was excited and pleased!
Their closing was an unusual one! They were not only not able to be in Atlanta for closing (so we do what is called a “mail-away closing”) but Jim was in Nevada and Natalie was in New York…so it was a DOUBLE mail-away! Our team at Ganek, Wright and Minsk, Closing Attorneys did an outstanding job of finding our Buyers locations to sign their documents. And they each had to sign the SAME set of documents, so they had to go from ATL to Nevada to New York and back to Atlanta! Whew!
Jim’s lender, John Markham with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage did an incredible job with his team to have a loan package ready and to the attorney for the mail-away process to begin. Here’s a funny side to the story however…and just goes to show that in your real estate purchase, your lender is worth their weight in gold in making your closing be smooth! The SELLER used Wells Fargo to close on their new home purchase and they had a total disaster. They ended up having to delay their closing twice, and almost lost the home they had found! All because the loan officer did not have their “ducks in a row!”
When we work with Buyers, this is one of the very reasons we work with them and recommend the various players they need to have on YOUR TEAM! After all, everyone IS on YOUR TEAM to help you find, and buy the home of your dreams!
Congratulations again to our Buyers and we look forward to seeing them around Midtown!
