Hot Wednesday- Lionhead Bunny.  Yes, you heard it right there is such an animal that is the cutest thing & so affectionate.  My clients had me over for a celebration of their new home they bought with me as their Charlestown RI real estate agent. They have done an incredible job of making it home, enlarging their animal base & clearing land.  First, the 3 cat crew came with them.  Next it was the baby chicks which are all different varieties and will soon start laying eggs.  Lastly (for now), is the lion bunny name Bo.  Bo was being given away on craigslist because the owners couldn't keep him  when they moved.  Of course, he now is part of the family.   Bo has a lions mane!  Yup, that is the deal...soft, cute and personable.  Plus he is litter trained.  That is no small feat with a lio...

Words I Love to Hear:  Clear to Close.  There is nothing better than the ring a linging of those three words.  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 finishe...

Another Pending Charlestown RI Home - Let the Inspections Begin... my buyers have the signed purchase and sales back from Freddie Mac and have been busy scheduling inspections for the home...FINALLY.  This is one of the next steps in the process of saying a yay or a nay in the go ahead with this foreclosed home purchase for my buyers. BUT....even before we begin this process I have had the title attorney go through the title chain and make sure everything is in order here which it is.  One of the important steps to be done is to identify if the title to the property is free and clear of liens, encumbrances, etc. prior to making it to the closing table. WELL...the only thing that can delay this closing is if the lender decides they do not like the outcome of the home inspection report.  ...
