Words I Love to Hear: Clear to Close

Real Estate Agent with RI Real Estate Services ~ 401-529-7849~ RI Waterfront Real Estate

Words I Love to Hear:  Clear to Close.  There is nothing better than the ring a linging of those three words.Charlestown RI Home in Sales Contract  When the buyers lender called me up today to let me know that we were good for a Monday morning closing. It is time for this Charlestown RI home for sale that is just right for these buyers.

This home has special meaning to me since these young buyers are buying a Freddie Mac foreclosed home that has taken 4 months to get to the closing table.  THey are just waiting to move into their Rhode Island living home.

Nothing was easy about this home..from the inspection to the radon in the water to the bacteria in the well...Oh, it just went on and on.  The buyers have work to do in this home but they have great expansion possibilities in the upstairs that has been all roughly finished for them.  With 2 acres of land and low real estate taxes and just 10 minutes from town, they are planning their future with the words I love to hear: clear to close!!

We also are getting a present from the Bank I am told...not going to spoil it because it will definitely put the cabash on it at this point!  Even with all the issues to get this sweet Charlestown RI home to closing, the REO agent and her team were very cooperative with  getting things done (well I am a sweet talker) to please my buyers lender prior to closing.  And we have no snow...shhh!

So I'm counting the hours with my buyers until we get there...lets see that is 123 hours and counting down....think I am a bit crazed by this point...oh no...this is how a North Kingstown real estate agent celebrates!  Words I Love to Hear:  Clear to Close

Nice ring to those words! Way to hang in there with your clients. It is encouraging to know that Freddie Mac and the REO agent were willing to work through all of those issues with you.

Clear to Close--  or "C2C"  if you're texting/e-mailing  (not while driving).  :)

Sometimes it feels like you'll never get there, and this deal sounds especially challenging...  The only phrase better is 'YOU ARE CLOSED...  CONGRATULATIONS!'

Good luck on Monday!

Way to go.  Sticking with it for your clients is an in-valuable asset. That is what it is all about.  Stay with it and get over each hurdle as they come up and you will almost always be a winner.

They're some of my favourite words too, Ginny, but, as with Melissa, I've seen files fall apart between the time Title Recorded and Funds disbursed.  It's not over until the fat lady sings.

Ginny - I love those words as well.  Raymond (#37) is correct, however.  Around here, until the deed is actually recorded in the county courthouse, it deel isn't closed.

Congratulations on your clear to close bell!! That was a well-earned commission and you probably have earned clients for life. It takes a lot of communication to keep buyers with a home over that period of time with difficult items that pop up on the home inspection. High five!

Hi Ginny, I agree on those words.  And with all the issues we have these days, we sure do earn every penny of our commissions.

I beg to differ - there IS something better than those three words, and that is that it actually has closed and the deal is officially done :-)  But, I too do love to hear that there is a clear to close and the done deal is imminent.  :-) Kasey
