We Buy Amarillo Houses – Why should you work with us?

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

I know that if you are looking to sell your house that you have a lot of choices.  There are a lot of ‘We Buy Amarillo Houses’ companies out there.  I also know that at the end of the day, the highest bid is what you are looking for, and I understand that.  I want you to know that I consistently offer the most money of any investor in town.  But that is not the point that I am trying to make here.

If I were in your shoes I would probably feel a little overwhelmed.  I would want to get the best price for my house but I would also want to make sure that I was dealing with the right company.

I would like to share an e-mail that I received yesterday.   This lady had been trying to sell her house with a Realtor for months.  She had really gotten the run around!  She was shocked at how good of an offer I was able to make her and how quickly and easily we closed the deal.  I can go on and on about how I pay the most and how I am a member of the Better Business Bureau and how my deals close on time.  But really, what other people say about my company is more important than what I say about it.  So I am sharing this e-mail that she sent me so that you can see what she thinks.

Wade,

I was out of town on Saturday when my check arrived.  What can I say Wade?  You made everything so easy for us and when we had a question you were right there to answer it.  We cannot thank you enough.   We would not hesitate for one minute to recommend you.    We do hope you will find a family that will love the house as much as we did.   We moved there when I was in sixth grade and I was there until I got married.  Over the weeks when my sister and I would talk about the house and you, we both expressed the same thought, “Wade was a life saver for us.”    Do you mind if we write a review on your web site?  Thank you again and if you need anything else from us, please call.

It’s no secret that the real estate market has cooled off.  Even here in good ‘ole Amarillo Texas we have seen the housing market slow down.  Several years ago you could just put a sign in your yard and your house would just about sell itself.  That’s definitely not the case today.  Some houses are taking 6 months or longer to sell.  For some home owners waiting for months to get their house sold is just not an option.  If you need to sell your house sooner rather than later then give us a call.  We buy fixer-upper houses.  We buy pretty houses.  We buy just about every kind of house except mobile homes.  Here is what we offer.

  1.  We pay cash so we can close whenever you want.  In as little as a few days if you need to close that fast.  You are in complete control of the closing date.  There are no banks to complicate the transaction.
  2. We take the house as is.  You don’t have to fix or clean anything.  We take care of that for you.
  3. We pay all of the closing costs.  Most people don’t realize how much the closing costs on a typical transaction can add up to!
  4. We take care of all the paperwork and handle all of the details.  All you need to do is focus on your next move and then come sign and pick up your check.  We make it very easy.

Often people tell us that the biggest benefit we offer is the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your house will be sold for sure on a certain date, no if’s, and’s, or but’s!  Sometimes life can throw you a curve ball.  You get transferred with your job or you fall behind on your payments and want to avoid foreclosure.  Those are the times when you need to know for sure that you can count on your house being sold.  That is perhaps the worst thing about working with a traditional buyer.  So many times a buyer’s financing will fall through at the last minute.  Sometimes they just change their mind and back out.  We are not that way.  We close on time, every time.

So if you have a house in Amarillo, Canyon, or Lubbock that you need to sell, stop what you are doing and call me.  My web guy tells me that I need to also tell you to send me an e-mail or to visit my website at Sell My Amarillo House and so I’m telling you to do that.  But it’s just way better to pick up the phone and call me.  I’m a nice guy and I won’t try to force you to take my offer.  I can probably give you some ideas that you haven’t thought about, even if I can’t buy your house.  You can call me at 806-359-SOLD (7653) or toll free at 1-866-554-SOLD(7653).

Sell your Amarillo House Fast- How do you know which house buying company to work with?

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

I recently bought a house in Amarillo from a lady who needed to move closer to her children.  She was a really nice lady and I was happy to work with her.  When she first called me she was a little skeptical about working with a Real Estate investor.  When I drove out to take a look at her house I soon found out why.  I noticed a for sale sign in her yard and asked her if she had received any good offers.  She told me that it wasn’t HER sign, it was another investor’s.  She told me that she had signed a contract with this guy and she thought that he was buying her house.  As it turned out, he was just trying to sell it without buying it.  He wanted to be a middleman.  He put his sign in her yard and showed prospective buyers the house  but in the end, could not get it sold.  Now I understood why she was a little nervous.  Three days later when she signed the papers and picked up her check she thanked me for doing what I said I would do.  I went home and thought about it and it made me upset.  That’s why I’m writing this.

I get calls every month from people who tried working with some rinky-dink ‘we buy Amarillo houses’ company.  This investor made big promises but in the end, the deal didn’t close and the homeowner was left hanging.  They call me looking for help.  The problem is that many investors can’t get loans to buy houses, so they just try to make a quick buck by selling the house before they buy it. They just want to be the middle man.  They have no intentions of closing on the houses they put under contract.  It sounds crazy but it actually happens.  .  If you are selling to a Real Estate Investor, how do you know which company to work with?

You have got to make sure that you sell your house to an established, reputable company.  You need to make sure that they have the funds available to close and that they do indeed plan to close on the house  themselves.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

1.  Try to deal with only local companies.  This makes checking up on a company much easier.  I personally wouldn’t sell my house to someone who wasn’t local.

2.  Ask for and call references.  A good company should have plenty of satisfied customers.  I can give you a list of references a mile long.

3.  Check with the Better Business Bureau.  Just because someone has a ‘we buy Amarillo houses’ ad does not mean that they are a real company.

4.  Insist on using a local title company.

5.  Meet the person face to face if possible.  There are too many scams out there.  Meeting face to face makes it much harder to be scammed.

6. Ask lots of questions.  Don’t take anything for granted.

7.  Have a local attorney review the contract if anything looks suspicious.

8.  Don’t work with anyone who wants to put a sign in your yard and sell your house to someone else.  That is just ridiculous.  Why not just call a Realtor?

It is important to remember that not all real estate investment companies are bad.  When we write a contract on a house, we intend on closing that deal.  We have the funds available to buy it.  Sometimes we even advise people to do something besides selling us their house.  They just look at us kind of funny,  but that’s just how we do it.  We have to live and work here in this community with the same people we help.  We are very much a local company.  People can stop by our office for a cup of coffee anytime.  But the bottom line is that our deals close on time.  We do what we say we’ll do. That’s why we are still in business.

If you have a house to sell in Amarillo, Canyon, or Lubbock, give me a call.  I would be happy to make you an offer.  You can call me at 806-359-7653.
