How to Sell Your Home Without a Realtor | Amarillo TX 806-359-7653

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

The real estate market in Amarillo TX has picked up.  2012 was a great year and 2013 is starting out the same way.  But is our market so strong that you can sell your home in Amarillo without using a Realtor?

The short answer to this question in no.  I do not think it is wise for anyone to try to sell without using a Realtor.  Realtors have all the buyers right now.  And they can expose your house to many more buyers than you can.  But if you decide to sell it on your own you need to make sure you avoid the number one mistake that sellers make.  Pricing your house incorrectly.

Many people price their house at what they would like it to be worth, or what it used to be worth, or what their neighbor’s house sold for three years ago.  They rarely take the time to do research.  Pricing a house correctly is a big key to getting it sold.  I know that you want to get as much for it as possible but you also have to be realistic.  You need to look at market comparables in your neighborhood.  Try to look only at houses that are within 20% of the same size as yours, the same style, in the same condition, and that have sold within the last year.  If you price it too high you will miss out on the first 30 days on the market, which is the time that your house will get the most exposure.  Price it aggressively if you want it to sell quickly.  Even if you are just 5% below the rest of the competition your house will stand out.

If you have a house in Amarillo that you need to sell fast you should call me and let me make you an offer.  I can close very quickly and I take the house as is, so you don’t have to make any costly repairs.  I would be happy to give you more information.  You can call me at 806-359-7653 or visit me on line at How to Sell Your Home Without a Realtor Amarillo

Our Real Estate market has picked up here in good ole Amarillo Texas!  That is great news if you have a house that you need to sell.  But what if you have a house that needs a lot of work?  Are those types of houses selling fast?

 

This is what the experts don’t always tell you.  There are really two Real Estate markets.  One for the pretty homes and one for the distressed homes that need a lot of work.  The pretty houses are selling much faster than the distressed houses.  The ‘fixer upper’ market is very saturated right now because there are still a lot of foreclosed homes for sale.  This is not good news if you are trying to sell a house that needs a lot of work.  It is important to keep this in mind when you hear people talking about how the Real Estate market has improved.  So the bottom line is that if you list a house that needs repairs be prepared for it to take a while to sell.

 

If that doesn’t sound fun, give us a call.  We specialize in buying homes that need to be sold quickly, or that need work, or both.  We pay cash, close whenever you want, and pay all of the closing costs.

 

When you compare our offer with what you actually walk away from the closing table using a Realtor you will be shocked.  If your house is in perfect condition, you want top dollar, and you don’t mind waiting for months then a Realtor will work fine.  If not, sell your home fast to us, don’t list it.

 

If you are even thinking of selling call us today at  806-359-SOLD (7653) or visit us online at Sell My Amarillo Home.

 

Amarillo Cash For Houses | How Fast Can You Sell Your Home? 806-359-7653

Friday, January 11th, 2013

I get a lot of calls from people who need to sell their home.  Many people want to know how fast we can close.   Since we pay cash for houses in Amarillo  we don’t have to worry about dealing with the banks.  We can close on most deals in as little as three or four days.  Most people don’t need to close that fast but it is nice to know that if you need to sell your home fast we can definitely help!

The Real Estate market in Amarillo was much better in 2012.  And the good news is that according to the experts 2013 is looking very strong.  Keep in mind though, that these stats are for houses that are in good condition.  If your home needs a lot of work it may still take months to sell on the open market, if it even sells at all!  So if you have a nice home in a nice part of Amarillo that doesn’t need work then you should probably list with a Realtor so that you can get top dollar.  Especially if you don’t mind waiting for a few months.   But if your home needs work or if you need to sell it fast you should give me a call.  I would be happy to make you an offer on your home.  You can visit my website at Amarillo Cash For Houses if you would like more details.  Or you can give me a call at 806-359-7653.  Call me today!

Cash for Houses Amarillo | Scam or Solution?

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Today I googled the term ‘Cash for Houses Amarillo’ just to see what would come up.  I saw that there were many people who said that the ‘Cash for Houses’ advertising is nothing but a scam.  At first this really upset me.  But then I realized that many people do have very negative experiences with Real Estate Investors.  It is just a sad fact.  So I thought I would respond to the three biggest complaints that I kept reading about.

  1.  These companies are just trying to list houses, not buy them.

Here at Mitchell Property Group we buy Amarillo houses.  We buy lots of houses actually.  Yes, my wife Emmy is a Real Estate Broker (and a darn good one I might add!).  Yes we can list your house if you really want us to.  But our main focus is buying houses.  When you call us we are not going to try to get you to list your house with us!  We want to buy it!

  1.  Nobody ever called me back.

It is our goal to answer all calls that we receive during business hours.  But we are still just a very small family business.  We can’t answer them all.  We are out looking at houses every day.  So we try to call everyone back within a few hours.  Sometimes we are out of town or we are closed for a holiday.  But believe me, if you call or e-mail us, you will most certainly get a call back from us asap!

  1.  The offer was ridiculously low.

I have written many blogs about how we make our offers.  You can read one of them at We Buy Amarillo, TX Houses.  You can read another one at Are We Buy Amarillo Houses Companies Scam Artists.  But the bottom line is that we do not offer 50 cents on the dollar.  Our offers are very fair and our terms are excellent!  We do the job of a general contractor and a Realtor.  And we take all of the risk!  Every year we end up losing money on several deals because we make very aggressive offers.

 

I want people to know that not all Real Estate Investor companies in Amarillo are the same.  I want people to know that we are different.  If you have a house that you need to sell give us a call.  We would love to hear from you.  Call us today at 806-359-7653 or visit us online at Cash for Houses Amarillo.
