We spoke with a friend of ours about selling our home. He passed our contact information to Craig Summers of Atlanta Northwest Realty’s Paulding & Polk Team. Within a short time frame, Craig called us. We told him we needed to do some repairs before we’d be ready to sell. He said he understood, but also said he’d be happy to come and take a look at what we thought we needed to repair in order to sell. He told us we might be surprised that we didn’t need to repair some things to sell, but he’d definitely be able to show us what we did need to repair to sell. We thought this was a great idea and set up a time to meet. Craig was great; he showed up and had his full listing presentation prepared; but before he went over that, he asked us to show him around the home and point out the items we thought needed repair. We did. And after discussing these items, we had our repair list set. Craig then asked if we wanted to know what he felt our home would be worth once the repairs were complete. We did and he went straight to the market data he used to determine what he felt would be the best price for our home. After he showed us the market data, we discussed what he felt we should list our home for after our repairs. From there, Craig showed us all of the marketing the Paulding & Polk Team would do to sell our home. It was an impressive marketing plan, so we decided to get our repair list completed and list our home with his team. We completed our repair list in a short amount of time and advised Craig we were ready to list our home. We listed our home with Craig on Wednesday July 2, 2014. We thought we would immediately began to have showings, but that wasn’t the case. We were worried, but Craig explained that our home was just slightly above the sweet spot in the market for our area. He said he felt we’d get an offer and we should continue to be patient. He would call us every couple of weeks to go over what the market was doing since our last conversation and give us his thoughts on what we should do going forward. We did our best to remain patient, but then Craig called and advised of a large change in the percentage chance of selling our home and suggested we lower our price just slightly to see if that would generate some more interest. It did; and just a couple of weeks later, we got an offer for our full list price. The buyer had a home inspection completed and found some issues they wanted us to address. We agreed and Craig coordinated everything with us and the seller’s repair vendor. Craig’s detailed knowledge of the real estate market helped us manage our price and get more for our home than we thought, even when we were nervous that it wasn’t going to sell.
