Virtual Real Estate in Denver

We recently completed a virtual transaction for a client who never saw the house she bought, except via e-mail and virtual tours.

She was located in Anchorage and had asked her Realtor there if he knew anyone in Denver who could help her buy a home as a rental that her brother would look after. Niel Thomas ( & I have been roomates at a couple of Cyberstar Summits and he freely offered my name to her.

Once we had done a telephone interview, we started by getting the signed agency documents to her via e-mail as well as the required definitions etc. These were received back with her electronic signature and I did the same using my tablet PC.

We then connected her with a local lender that approve the loan electronically and with in a few days she had a pre-approved loan and a letter stating such.

I offer 4 different e-mail search engines for the Denver property listings. Knowing her OS she and personality from our phone and e-mail I decided on MyBuyingBuddy and shipped off 50 homes to sort through. She high graded those and sent her brother her "top" candidates. He drove past all of them and selected 5 of the "best".

There was one that was the "best" and it was available so a showing to Mom & Dad & Brother & Sister in Law plus the kids was arranged (NONE of these folks will live here) and it was decided that this was really the one that would best meet their objectives.

I spoke with the client, got my directions, prepared the offer to buy and sent it to her via e-mail. We received the signed document back via e-mail and forwarded it to the Listing agent across town. They forwarded it to the Seller, a bank. And within 24 hours we had a response and acceptance.
The inspection got done and it was attended by the brother but the report was sent to the buyer via e-mail.

The appraisal was ordered, and the documents assembled. They were all sent via e-mail and then signed in front of a notary in Alaska and then overnighted back to the title company while the funds were wired in and the deal was closed.

I met the Buyer at the house two weeks later when she came to town to see what she had purchased and to get it ready for her tenants.
Once again the whole family was there working on the home.
