How can I sell my house fast in Amarillo?

I wish that every time someone called me with a house to sell that I could buy it.  But that is just not the case.  Sometimes people have plenty of time to sell and their house doesn’t need any work.  In that case selling to a homeowner is the best option.

People often ask me how they can get their house to sell faster and for more money.  There are several things that you can do.  Here is the first one.

Make your house appeal to buyers. Sounds simple enough doesn’t it?  It is so easy though, to over look this point.  With the high number of houses sitting on the market buyers have more to choose from than ever.  Your house must be very appealing to buyers or it will get passed over.  Start with the outside. Curb-appeal is what gets people in the door.  Make sure the exterior is painted and needs no repairs.  Chipping or peling paint will scare off most home buyers.  Use a pressure washer to clean the exterior brick or siding.  The yard should be freshly mowed and free of any trash or junk.  Adding flower beds is an inexpensive way to make your house look better.  You may also consider adding shutters to your windows.  These little things will increase the curb-appeal of your house and help it be more competitive.  Next, focus your attention on the kitchen and bathrooms, especially the master bath.   Experts agree that these are the most important areas of your house.  If you are going to spend money on fixing up your house start here.  Remove all clutter from inside your house.  This helps buyers visualize how they will arrange their furniture.  It also makes your house appear bigger.  Make sure to fix any items that need repair.  Leaky faucets, stained carpet, old hot water heaters, and stained bathtubs are good places to start.  Just make sure that everything works.  Finally, make sure that your house is spotlessly clean and smells good.  You need to be able to show your house with little notice so keep it clean at all times.

If you ever need an outside opinion on your house give us a call.  We can probably give you some ideas that you may not have even thought about.  We buy Amarillo houses every month from people just like you.  And of course, if you need to sell your house fast, give us a call.  We would love to make you an offer!   We buy Amarillo houses every month from people just like you.Call 806-359-SOLD (7653) or visit us at Sell Your Amarillo House.

We Buy Amarillo Houses in the snow! | 806-359-SOLD (7653)

February 8th, 2011

Right now it is 6 degrees in Amarillo TX and the wind is gusting up to 50 mph.  It’s very cold.  The snow is blowing sideways and visibility is not very good.   But the good news is that I just bought a house!  I just left a house that had frozen pipes.  A line burst in the attic and flooded the house.  It was a disaster.  The lady who sold me the house called Serve Pro and they told her that it would cost about $4,000 to get the house cleaned up.  I can get it done for much less.  So it made a lot of sense for her to sell the house to me.  Instead of worrying about the clean up she will be cashing a check in about 3 days.

When we buy Amarillo houses we take them in as is condition.  We don’t even want you to clean up!  We pay  all of the closing costs and take care of all the details.  We make it a very easy transaction.   If you are even thinking of selling a house that needs repairs or needs to be sold quickly you should call us today.  Even if it is snowing outside, we would like to make you an offer!   Call us at 359-SOLD (7653) or visit our website to find out how cool we are!  We Buy Amarillo Houses

Why would you sell to a Real Estate Investor? | Amarillo TX Real Estate

February 3rd, 2011

Why would you ever consider selling your house to a Real Estate investor like me?  That is a really good question!  If I needed to sell my house I think selling to an investor would not be the first thing that would come to mind.  I would be thinking about calling a Real Estate agent or selling the house on my own.  Here is the problem with both of those ideas.

First off, let me say this… If your house is in good condition, in a good area, AND you don’t mind waiting for up to six months for it to sell then using a Real Estate agent may be a good idea.  But if it doesn’t fit all three criteria then you may be wasting your time.  If your house needs work, if it is a less than desirable neighborhood, or if you don’t want to wait for months to sell then you should consider working with me.  When you list your house with a Realtor you will usually have to pay a 6% commission.  You will also pay about 1% in closing costs plus, and this really stinks, you will need to be ready to pay at least 3% in buyers closing costs.  If you are not willing to do this you will probably not sell your house.  Most of the buyers do not have the money to pay closing costs.  So you will probably lose about 10% of the sales price.  Buyers will also get the house inspected and give you a big list of repairs that need to be made.  They will also negotiate the price down as much as possible.    I t is important to keep these things in mind.  The bottom line is that if you use a Realtor you will have to pay some fees and commissions.  This will greatly lower the amount you net from the sale of your home.  And it may take several months to get it sold using a Realtor.  If you compare my cash offer with what you actually walk away with if you use a Realtor you will see that my offers are pretty darn competitive.  It’s the bottom line that counts, not the contract price.  I can close in 3 days.  If you use a Realtor it may take months or longer.

So what about selling it For Sale By Owner.  The short answer is that it is not a good idea.  I list every house I sell with a Realtor.  Realtors have all of the buyers.  They also are able to list your house on the MLS which give it way more exposure than you could ever give it.  Several years ago when the market was hot you could sell it on your own, but not in this current market.  If you are able to pull it off you are still going to pay closing costs and make repairs just like you would if you used a Realtor.  So even though the contract price may be higher than my cash price you will not come out that far ahead.  And, just like I mentioned before, it may take six months for it to sell.  Add up you house payment, insurance payment, and monthly taxes and deduct that from the amount that you will net.  See what I mean?

Many times people call me months after I have made them an offer and tell me that they wish they had taken my offer.   They ended up selling it to a home owner but after they realize that they netted the same as they would have if they had taken my offer they are just sick.  Sometimes I end up buying the house for the same price that offered six months earlier.

There are several advantages to selling your house to a Real Estate investor like me.  I can:

  • Close on whatever day you want. You are in complete control of the closing date.
  • Take the property as-is. You don’t have to fix or clean ANYTHING.
  • Pay all of your closing costs. This saves you a ton of money.
  • Take care of all the details and paperwork. There is no stress for you.

How long does it take to sell a house in Amarillo TX? | Sell your house Amarillo TX.

January 4th, 2011

This has to be the question that I am most often asked.  How long does it take for a house to sell in Amarillo TX?  Well first off, that is just about impossible to answer.  Not all houses are the same.  It depends on the area, condition of the house, time of year, marketing, and on and on.  You can look at statistics and reports but they are just averages.  No house is just like your house.  Most reports that I am looking at show about 3-6 months.  That is if you are listing with a Realtor and is in good condition.  If you have a house that needs repairs it may take a very long time to sell.  Houses like that are taking up to a year to sell. 

Everyone knows that our market has slowed down quite a bit.  If you want your house to sell you need to price it aggressively and make sure that it doesn’t need any repairs.  You need to realize that there is a lot of competition out there.

So what if you can’t wait 3-6 months or longer?  What if you need to sell it this week?  If that is the case then give us a call.  We specialize in buying houses that need to be sold quickly, or that need work, or both.  We pay cash, close whenever you want, and pay 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.  We can close whenever you want and take the house in it’s as is condition.  You don’t have to fix anything or clean anything.  It is very easy.  If you need to sell your house this week give us a call at 806-359-7653 or visit us online at Sell My Amarillo House.

Amarillo Home Buyers Company | Are you trying to steal my house?

November 18th, 2010

I just got a call from a guy who I talked to about 6 months ago who wanted me to buy his home in Amarillo.  We couldn’t come to terms so he listed it with a Realtor.  He is a really nice guy, and despite not being able to work with him, we made friends.  I told him to let me know how everything went.  This is what he told me.  In the end, he walked away with about $5,000 more than what I had offered him on his home.  It took him 6 months to find a qualified buyer and get his house sold.  The contract price was higher, but by the time he paid his Realtor 6%, paid 3% in buyer closing costs, and 1% in his own closing costs, he didn’t get as much as he thought he would have.  But here’s the bad part.  He had to keep making payments for 6 months while his house was on the market!  His payment with taxes and insurance included came to about $716 per month (This was about a $100,000 house).  So he paid $4296 in payments over that 6 month period.  And to add insult to injury, he had to paint the trim of the home so that it would pass the bank inspection.  As you can imagine, this guy was a little frustrated.  He told me that he should have taken my offer and ran!

When I get calls from people looking for someone to buy their home in Amarillo, 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 a buyer, and they are not.  I have to get it for a good enough deal that I can fix it up and resale it for a profit, but 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 are looking for a home buyer in Amarillo give me a call.  I can go over the numbers with you and if it makes sense for you to do business with me then great.  If not then that’s ok too.  You can call me at 806-359-7653 or visit my website at Sell My Amarillo House for more information about my company.
