Shelby and I were introduced by her sister via Instagram (Shout out to Sarah for making this all happen!). Shelby and her wife, Megan, were looking to buy their first home in Colorado Springs. However, they are currently living on the East Coast and were going to need to do so without ever seeing the property! We quickly scheduled a time to speak on the phone so I could run them through the process and set some expectations about the market. Within no time, we had them approved for a VA loan, paperwork signed and an online search beginning. They were able to quickly identify a great house and we submitted an offer later that day. The next morning, they were under contract in a competitive offer situation!
The deal went swimmingly and they were able to receive funds from the Seller as a credit. Also, their awesome lender, Abby McDaniel, was able to get them a “clear to close” in just 11 days on a VA loan!!! Shelby and Megan successfully closed on this cute home in under 3 weeks! Their new home features 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2040 square feet, a 1 car attached garage, a shed, 2 outdoor entertaining and enjoyment areas, 2 living spaces, newly updated kitchen and bathrooms, a 9100 square foot lot, and an incredible location! Their home is just 5 minutes from the Garden of the Gods, on the west side of Colorado Springs for easy mountain access, only a few minutes from downtown, and has a park at the end of their street for their pups.
Congratulations on the purchase of your first home, Shelby & Megan! I can’t wait to meet you both!
