What Sets Us Apart

Ready to hit the "Easy" button?  When your seller's accepted offer comes back with multiple and often difficult repair requests, this is not the end of the road.  Clear 2 Close Contracting can pick up from this point and excel at completion of any repairs needed to keep your client's contract alive.  From the repair request list and a copy of the inspection report, we can price and execute agreed upon repairs and since Clear 2 Close specializes in repair request work, we are readily available when you need us.  This creates a professional, one-source contact for you as the listing agent so you can remain busy listing and showing other houses.




+ Buyers


Your buyer client has just had a home inspection completed,... but how do you place a value on the noted defects?  Clear 2 Close Contracting will create a budget for negotiations.  These estimates can be turned around quickly and submitted with your repair request list to ensure optimal negotiating power for your buyers.  This forces the seller to come up with contractors that can complete the repairs or negotiate based on your figures.  The perfect situation for your buyer.


Prelisting Preparation for Home Owners


Do you know everything about your house?  Don't worry, most homeowners do not.  But that is okay.  Clear 2 Close Contracting has developed a unique process that involves a prelisting evaluation to identify issues that may negatively effect the sale of your home, estimates for repairs needed and completion of these repairs prior to listing your home to ensure top dollar for your upcoming sale.  Not getting your home evaluated prior to listing is the largest single mistake home owners make when selling their home because unknown issues allow the buyer to have power over negotiations once the issues are found by their inspector.  Clear 2 Close Contracting can assist you and your agent in maintaining monetary control over the sale of your home.
