I had an especially nice St. Patrick's Day, as today I had a closing in the newly named San Tan Valley. This area is East of Gilbert Arizona, and used to be a part of the Town of Queen Creek. I was fortunate enough to work with a wonderful buyer, and was lucky enough to get the transaction closed. This was an investor owned home that was purchased less than 90 days ago, and was being sold at more than 20 percent of the investor's purchase price. Needless to say, we had some hurdles to overcome.
I am just thankful that the seller stuck with us, as he had a cash buyer waiting in the wings. The transaction took longer than anticipated, but the seller provided all the documents necessary to satisfy the lender, and it eventually closed.
I will be very happy to turn over the keys to the buyer when she arrives in town on Friday! She will also qualify for the first time homebuyer tax credit, which is an added bonus to getting this deal done. If we would have had to start over, I don't think we would have made the deadline.
Now I am ready to do another deal in San Tan Valley, or perhaps start getting some listings to sell in the newly named San Tan Valley.
