My wife, Kristie, and I decided it was time to move into a home we could grow into. We knew just who to contact about selling our home. We called my brother, Craig Summers of Atlanta Northwest Realty’s Paulding & Polk Team, to speak with him about selling our home. Craig and I talked over the phone and I asked him to tell me honestly at what price he thought we should list our home. He looked at comparable sales in the neighborhood and gave me a price that didn’t really please me, but before I could say anything he said, “However, the market is shifting and I believe we should list for more than that in order to see if we can get you more for your home.” That comment did interest me and we agreed to sit down and go over more details. Craig arrived with his full listing presentation and advised us he could go over that, but most of his clients preferred to know what he felt their home was worth based on the most recent home sales. We, like his other clients, chose to discuss our home’s value first. Craig went straight to the market data he found when we spoke over the phone. He showed us what the most recent sales prices were and what the homes currently on the market were listed for. He then looked at the other homes on the market and we compared the condition to ours and determined we’d list our home at the top of the market. Craig then showed us the entire Paulding & Polk Team marketing plan and we listed our home with him & his team. Within a week of listing our home, the other homes in our neighborhood began to reduce their prices, some of them drastically. Craig asked us if we felt we wanted to chase those homes by reducing our price drastically as they did. We said no; we felt we had more value in our home than they did. Craig agreed to keep our listing price strong, advising that he really felt the Paulding & Polk Team marketing would bring us an offer.After a couple of weeks on the market and several showings, Craig suggested we reduce our price slightly to generate some more interest in our home. We agreed. We reduced only $2,500 and that did the trick. Just 2 weeks later, we received a strong CASH offer. We agreed to accept this offer and sell our home!We listed our home with Craig on October 17, 2013 and in only 28 short days on the market, we were under contract! Craig was able to get us a strong CASH offer and his efforts also got the buyer to pay all of the closing costs in our home sale; that is almost completely unheard of in today’s real estate market! We SOLD our home on December 13, 2013. THAT’S NOT EVEN TWO FULL MONTHS FROM THE DAY WE LISTED! If you want to get your home sold for the most money, as fast as possible, and with very little hassle, you need to use Craig Summers with Atlanta Northwest Realty’s Paulding & Polk Team; he’ll get the job done!Clint & Kristie Summers Hiram, GA For a FREE List of 3 Plus Bedroom Paulding County Homes under $150,000 with prices, addresses, and descriptions click the link or fill out the form below.
