My wife, Nicole, and I decided it was time to move closer to our family. I had noticed an old friend of mine, Craig Summers of Atlanta Northwest Realty’s Paulding & Polk Team, was always posting real estate information on Facebook, so I reached out to him to talk about selling our home. Craig and I talked and at first he didn’t feel as if he would be able to sell our home for the price we were asking based on recent market sales in our subdivision. However, about a week after our conversation, Craig called me back to tell me there were several homes under contract for much more than what the homes had been selling for and he felt those sales would help us justify the price we needed to get in order to pay off our mortgage and make our move. After this conversation, we arranged a time for him to come over to discuss it further.Craig arrived and had his full listing presentation prepared, but asked us if before he went over it if we wanted to know what he felt our home was worth based on the most recent home sales. Of course that’s what we wanted, so Craig 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 price he felt we should list our home for and was even willing to help us get as much as we could. From there, Craig went over the entire Paulding & Polk Team marketing plan to sell our home and we listed our home.Within a week, we had our first showing and within three weeks, we had an offer. We accepted the offer and awaited our appraisal. It came in low, but Craig and the buyer’s agent put a plan in place to overcome this issue and still move forward. Unfortunately, the buyer lost his job and could no longer purchase our home. Craig told us not to worry; he would continue marketing our home and get us another buyer. Within two weeks, we had another offer and we accepted that offer as well. However, this time the buyer simply got cold feet and backed out. We were so frustrated. Craig was very understanding and assured us we would get our home sold.Although it seemed like an eternity before the next offer came in, it was only 5 weeks. We accepted this offer and this final time, things worked in our favor. We had absolutely no issues from this point forward; we simply waited for our closing date and closed. I guess what they say is true: the third time is a charm. Although we had unfortunate circumstances with our first two buyers, Craig and the Paulding & Polk Team got our home SOLD! We urge anyone who wants to sell their home to use Craig Summers with Atlanta Northwest Realty’s Paulding & Polk Team! They really do have an amazing marketing plan; after all, they got us 3 offers and they got it SOLD.
