As we approach Thanksgiving it's easy to focus on things for which we are thankful, things both large and small.
Today I am focused on being thankful for smooth real estate transactions.
In both cases the buyers were ready and anxious; in both cases the selling agents were good, on the ball, and communicated delightfully well. In both cases the lenders came through as promised, after keeping us informed along the way. To make it more sweet, both closed early, ahead of schedule.
These smooth transactions couldn't have happened to more deserving sellers. One seller is a Senior who moved out of the area into an assisted living community after being in her condo for 43 years. The other sellers had just purchased and moved into a home two weeks earlier, from which they were evacuated for 8 days due to the wild fires that scoured Napa and Sonoma counties. Stressful days to say the least for both sellers. But the escrow periods on the sale of their properties weren't stressful, for which I am definitely thankful.
