Torelli Realty’s Anne McCasland Unites Buyer and Seller

Real Estate Timing for the Seller

Torelli Realty real estate agent Anne McCasland recently experienced the joy of good real estate timing. She had a listing on a property that had a special circumstance: the seller decided to list the home in May 2010 and was unable to move until December 2010. Timing in real estate deals can be very stressful for buyers and sellers. This client decided to list the home over six months ahead of schedule in hopes of avoiding headaches.

Real Estate Timing for the Buyer

Of course, many buyers want to in right away so a wait like that can be a turnoff. Luckily, the perfect buyer came along. This buyer always wanted to live in the Mesa Verde Inner Loop and fell in love with the charm of the home. In fact, it reminded him of his childhood home. In this case the house was worth the wait.

Happy Buyer

The Happy Buyer

Uniting Buyer and Seller

Since the buyer and seller were so pleased with the arrangement, Realtor Anne McCasland took them both out to dinner at local restaurant. The seller of the home entertained the buyer with stories and the buyer was thrilled to have the chance to hear all about the home from the former owner.

Cheers to all!
