Madison Heights, MI (PRWEB) October 18, 2006
Darrick Scruggs looks happy and relaxed, although he has a lot of competitors in Michigan worried sick. He just got off the phone from doing an Internet interview about his promise to give away a brand new Jeep Liberty SUV if a renter buys a home from him during the upcoming FirstTime Home Buyer Octoberfest that his mortgage company, Granite Financial Group, is putting on in Southfield on October 28, 2006.
He remember his own days as a renter when, fresh out of college, he was living in Detroit and the dream of buying his first was, well. just a dream.
"No one gets up in the morning, rolls over to there honey and says, 'You know we are lucky to be renting.'," Scruggs said. "Owning your home is an American Dream and in Michigan right now."
Darrick goal is to empower 1,000 new homeowners over the next 36 months to live the American Dream of becoming an homeowner. With thousands of sellers lined up for somebody to buy their home, this is the easiest time to go and get a great deal.
But even on this, Darrick has changed the traditional way of buying a home. Everybody typically calls up a real estate agent to find them a listing of houses that are for sale in the area they want to live. The problem with that is that most buyers in Michigan need "a little help" with the down payments and closing costs and most traditional seller have no equity in their homes.
"I sat and saw a good two dozen dreams fall apart in front of my eyes when a first time home buyer could not get their dream home, only for a lack of a couple thousand dollars," said Scruggs. "Well, I got a bunch of people with tons of equity."
Darrick works exclusively with several real estate investors, who have bought bank foreclosures, renovated them and then sell them for a profit. Since they are not your typical mom and pop sellers, they have equity, and Michigan renters buying a house from them can get all the help they need to get the keys to their dream home.
"This is going to rock," says Mark White, who is the other half of the Granite Financial Group executive team. "I decided to throw the book out that says that buying your first home has to be a boring and stressful. Instead our Octoberfest is about getting you educated and getting your home and a new car- all the same time."
Mark and Darrick have gone as far as providing entertainment & gift bags for the children while their parents get qualified, get approved and pick a new home with the color of their new Jeep Liberty truck.
