In July of 2012, we were renting for $750.00 and decided it was time to buy a home. We began searching online and we found www.pauldingandpolk.com with an online form for a FREE list of 3 Plus Bedroom Paulding County Homes under $150,000 with PRICES, ADDRESSES, & DESCRIPTIONS. We filled out the form and received a call from Craig Summers of Atlanta Northwest Realtys Paulding & Polk Team. We explained to Craig wed had a business take a down turn with the economy and we lost a tractor trailer in the process. We were aware this was an issue, but this would no longer be an issue in May of 2013. Craig said he understood, hed had several clients that had faced issues due to the economic downturn and he would continue to follow up with us until we were ready to move forward. Craig did just that; he followed up periodically to make sure we were still on point to purchase our home. Even as the Paulding & Polk Team grew, Craig made sure Keisha Cline, one of the team members, followed up with us regularly. They both advised us of exactly what we needed to do in order to move forward with our home purchase. Finally in January of 2014, wed followed the guidance of the Paulding & Polk Team and our credit was in great shape. Lavon called Keisha and she got us right over to their lender. We were pre-approved! Keisha set a time for us to meet with Craig and look at homes. Craig was great; he got us set up on a custom home search and showed us homes that day. Then he had Keisha follow up with us each week to see if wed seen any homes in our custom home search that wed like to go see. After several weeks, we werent seeing any homes we liked and I let Craig know. He changed our home search and we were looking again. Unfortunately, the market changed pretty dramatically and our rent went up to $900 a month, so we had to increase our price range a couple of times to begin seeing homes in our home search that we liked enough to set appointments to see. Craig explained the dramatic change in the market was caused by competition for the best homes in our price range. We understood and we made several strong offers on homes we liked but were unable to get one under contract because other buyers were willing to offer more. We were disappointed, but Craig told us not to give up and he kept showing us homes. Then, we found a fully remodeled home for a great price and we offered on it the day we saw it. Craig called us the next day with great news, our offer was accepted! We were under contract to buy this home! We went back the next day to check out the neighborhood and another agent was showing the home. We explained wed gotten the home under contract and asked if we could walk through it while the agent was there and they agreed. Unfortunately, we found water damage in a finished basement room. We immediately called Craig; and he told us not to worry. He negotiated with the sellers agent to have the water issue corrected by a professional water proofer who would provide a lifetime warranty on the repairs. We were extremely pleased! With Craigs help we got: 1. A fully remodeled home for a great price!2. $3,000.00 in closing costs paid by the seller! 3. A payment of $730 a month, which is $170 Less than we were paying in rent! 4. Our first house payment isnt due until 32 days from our closing! Thats a great list, but there was more!! Craig also gave us the Buyers Advantage Program, which includes a 12 month Sell for Free Guarantee, A Free Home Warranty, and Free Owners Title Insurance. We recommend Craig Summers and the Paulding & Polk Team for all your real estate needs!
