We Buy Amarillo TX Houses | What Should You Expect? 806-359-7653

Monday, August 5th, 2013

I get a lot of calls every day from people who need to sell houses in Amarillo.  I always try to put myself in their shoes.  And actually, I’ve been in their shoes quite a few times.  I have made a lot of bad buying decisions over the years and have found myself in situations where I had a house that I needed to sell quick fast and in a hurry!  So I always ask myself… if I called a We Buy Amarillo Houses Company, what would I expect from them?

  1.  The first thing I would expect is honesty.  Real Estate Investors across the nation have earned a reputation as being shady.  And for good reason.  I have never seen an industry attract so many con-artists!  Selling a house is a big deal.  I would insist that the company I was dealing with was honest.  I would ask for references and check with the Better Business Bureau.
  2. I would expect them to be nice.  We have an office policy.  We don’t deal with mean people.  If someone is a jerk we try very hard to avoid them.  We treat people like we would like to be treated.
  3. I would expect them to have the ability to buy the house.  I know it sounds silly but many so-called investors don’t have the ability to buy houses.  I would ask to see a proof of funds letter or talk to their bank.  This would eliminate most of the con-artists.
  4. I would expect them to take care of business!  I would want them to show up when they said they would show up and call back when they said they would call back.  I would also expect them to close on time and I would want my money at closing, not several days later!
  5. I would not want them to be pushy!  I would want them to give me all of the information, including their offer, and then back off and let me make a decision!  Nobody likes to be pressured.

We have been buying houses in Amarillo and Canyon for over 10 years.  We have been very blessed to make a lot of friends along the way.  I believe that one of the keys to our success is that we treat people like we would want to be treated.  If you have a house that you need to sell please give us a call.  We would love to visit with you.  Call 806-359-7653 or visit us online at We Buy Amarillo Houses

We Buy Amarillo Houses for Cash | Home Buying Scam Amarillo TX

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

You would be crazy to sell your house to one of those We Buy Amarillo Houses for Cash companies right?  After all, they are just a bunch of scam artists.  Listing with a Realtor is ALWAYS your best option.  After all, they are professionals and they help you get top dollar.  Right?

Recently I read an article on the internet advising home owners to steer clear of We Buy Amarillo Houses companies.  The author who was a licensed Real Estate Agent, went on and on about how it is NEVER a good idea to sell to an investor.  She said it is ALWAYS better to list with a ‘Professional.’  I strongly disagree.

First let me start by saying that every person selling a home has a unique situation.  It is not wise for anyone to give them ‘one size fits all’ advice.  Let me also say that many times it IS in fact better for a homeowner to list with an agent.  If the house is in good condition, in a good neighborhood, and the seller has plenty of time to sell then a Realtor is probably the way to go.  But if the seller has a house that needs work, or is in a bad neighborhood, or they need to sell fast, then I highly recommend that they get an offer from a reputable Real Estate Investor.  Then they can decide for themselves which way to go.

Realtors are always quick to point out how terrible it is for investors to make what they consider to be low offers.  But what they need to realize is it is even worse to mislead a homeowner by promising them an unrealistic price for their house.  This is one of the oldest tricks in the book.  An agent will recommend a high listing price just to get the homeowner to list with them.  After the home has been on the market for a month or two with no showings the agent will recommend a price reduction.  A few months later the agent will recommend another price reduction.  At this point the homeowner is very frustrated but they are locked into a listing agreement.  In my opinion this is much more deceptive and dishonest then offering a low price.  But nobody ever talks about it and it happens all the time!

Another thing that Realtors need to remember is that not every house can be sold on the MLS.  Many people who call investors like me have a house that needs a lot of work.  These houses will end up being sold to an investor anyway so why involve a Realtor and pay extra commissions?

It is also important to remember that timing in a Real Estate transaction is just important as price to some people.  If you look on the Amarillo MLS you will find that many houses listed with agents have been on the market for over a year!  Some people need to sell their house in a week, that’s why they call me in the first place.

In the end, I believe that more information is better than less information.  More options are better than less options.  I always encourage homeowners to consult with a Realtor.  But I also think it is good for homeowners to get a written offer from an investor.  Especially if they have a house that needs a lot of work or that needs to be sold fast.  There is nothing that FORCES someone to take that offer!  I have found that people are not stupid.  If they can get enough good information they can make an intelligent decision.

If you would like to speak with me about receiving an all cash offer on your house please call me at 806-359-7653.  Or visit me online at We Buy Amarillo Houses Cash. After all, how could it hurt to just get an offer?

 

Amarillo Home Buyer | Call 806-359-7653

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Spring has sprung and people are getting the ‘house bug!’  If you need to sell your house fast then you need to call an Amarillo Home Buyers!  Here’s why…

  1.  ‘Fixer uppers’ don’t sell very fast!  Pretty houses are selling without a problem.  If you have a house that needs work however, it is a different story!  There has been a surge in foreclosed properties hitting the market.  These are distressed properties that are priced below market value.  This is your competition if you have a house that needs work.  This segment of the housing market is very slow.

 

  1. Realtors take too long!  I love Realtors.  Good ones, like my wife, are worth their weight in gold.  But even the best Realtors can’t guarantee that your house will sell.  Many Realtors do a terrific  job. It just takes them several months to get your house sold.  Often times they are not marketing the property correctly or following up with potential buyers.  Whatever the case may be, it will it will usually take them several months to get your house sold.

 

  1. People can’t afford their property.  Owning and maintaining a home is very expensive.  House payments, property taxes, and insurance are the big three.  But don’t forget about maintenance!  It just costs a lot of money to keep a house up and running.  Things break and need to be repaired.  All of these things add up.

When I get calls from people looking for an Amarillo Home Buyer, I know what they are thinking… They think I am just trying to steal their home.  But that’s just not the case.  I do the combined job of both a Realtor and a General Contractor.  But the big difference is that I am not a Realtor, I am a buyer, and they are a not!  I buy the house, they list it and hope for a buyer.  When you compare my offer with what you would actually walk away with if you were to use a Realtor, you will see that I am actually a pretty aggressive buyer!  Especially if your home needs some work.

So if you need to sell your house fast to an Amarillo Home Buyer, give me a call at 806-359-7653.  Mitchell Property Group—Amarillo Home Buyer

Sell Your House Amarillo | Sell Your House in 3 Days! 806-359-7653

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Most of the time when people call us they need to sell their house in two to three weeks.  But occasionally we get a call from someone who needs to close as fast as humanly possible.  It typically takes about 30 days to close a Real Estate transaction in the State of Texas.  Anything shorter than 30 days is considered to be a quick sale.  A two week close is just about unheard of and a 10 day close is almost impossible to pull off.  The main reason that it is difficult to close this fast is because it just takes time for the title company to get all of the title work completed and for attorneys to draw up the deed.  If there is any financing involved it really slows things down.   The average buyer just cannot pull off a fast close.  But we are not your average buyers!

When we buy Amarillo houses we pay cash so we don’t have to worry about the bank slowing us down.  Since we deal in such a high volume we have special arrangements with our local title company and attorneys.  They understand the urgent nature of our closings so they push us to the front of the line.  That is how we are able to move so quickly.  As long as there are no complications with the title work we can close in about 3 days if you need us to.  That means if you call us Monday morning we can possibly close by Wednesday afternoon!

If you need to sell your house fast in Amarillo give us a call.  We can help.  We pay all of the closing costs and we buy the house as is.  We make it simple to sell your house.   Call us today at 806-359-7653 or visit us online at Sell Your House Amarillo

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!
