My wife and I were paying $890 a month rent on a small apartment and decided it was time to become homeowners. Craig Summers, with The Paulding & Polk Team, was recommended to us by Steven Driver, who’d bought a home with Craig’s help several years ago. We got in touch with Craig. He asked some quick questions and told us he was confident he could help. He advised he would get our information to his lender to get us pre-approved for a home loan. Once that was complete, we set an appointment to see a home.
When we met, Craig went over the buying process and created a custom home search website to fit our needs. Once we were finished with that, we went out looking at homes. We looked at a several homes and made a few offers and eventually got one accepted.
This home was fully remodeled and looked like new, with just a few minor issues, which Craig asked the seller to fix when he made the offer. We decided to see if the appraisal would find any major repair issues before ordering a home inspection. The appraisal came back without any repairs, but the value was lower than our agreed to price. Craig went right to work and negotiated with the Seller to get the full reduction. Even when the seller didn’t want to reduce their price, Craig dug in and was very detailed with the seller and got them to agree to the full $5,000 reduction.
Craig’s work in negotiating got the seller to pay $5,000 in closing costs, do a few minor repairs, have the Heating & Air Conditioning fully serviced, and pay for a one year home warranty! Then with the lower appraisal, he got the purchase price reduced by $5,000! Craig’s hard work on our behalf greatly helped us with the purchase of this home; it paid off HUGE! With Craig’s help, we saved OVER $10,000!!!
Craig also arranged the closing so our first house payment wasn’t due until 34 days later AND gave us the Buyers Advantage Program, which includes a 12 month Sell for Free Guarantee, A Free Home Warranty, and Free Owner’s Title Insurance. We highly recommend Craig Summers and The Paulding & Polk Team to everyone who is looking to buy or sell Real Estate!
