Sold! Part-Time Residents Close on Highlands Ranch Residence

Congratulations to Ann and Tom on the purchase of their new Highlands Ranch condo! Ann and Tom reside out of stat. Their children reside in South Metro Denver and are expecting a baby in a few months. Ann and Tom wanted a second residence nearby so they can comfortably spend time with their family and new grandchild.

After vetting many properties online, a virtual tour was set up and the property was found to fit their needs perfectly. Their offer was accepted. All contracts and disclosures were shared and signed electronically. The inspection was performed, and report sent online. Closing was performed virtually for everyone’s safety.

Securing a residence as an out-of-state buyer can add a level of difficulty to the purchase process. Coupled with the complexity of the stay-at-home order, this scenario could prove challenging. Availability of and proficiency with virtual tools plus cooperation from agent partners, lenders and the title company made this transaction smooth and successful.

We are happy to welcome Ann and Tom to Colorado as part-time residents and are proud to be a part of the process to ensure their smooth transition to our great state.
