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

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

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?

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.

10 Ways to Avoid Being Scammed by Real Estate Investors Amarillo TX | 806-359-7653

December 19th, 2012

Well another big Real Estate Investor seminar has blown through Amarillo.  I always cringe when I hear their advertisements that promise to show people how to ‘get rich flipping houses with no money down.’  Now it won’t be long until we have a whole new wave of so-called Real Estate Investors. These people do not have the money to buy your house but they have just enough training to look and sound like a real investor.  I can tell you right now that you do NOT want to get involved with this type of person.  No wonder Amarillo Real Estate Investors get a bad name.

So how do you know which company to work with?  You have got to make sure that you are selling 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.  Make sure that they aren’t trying to sell their contract to another investor.

Here are the top 10 ways to avoid being scammed:

  1. Deal only with local companies.  This makes checking up on a company much easier.  I personally would never deal with 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 doesn’t 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.  If you were going to do that you should have just called a Realtor!
  9. Ask for at least $500 in earnest money and a short closing date.
  10. Do not sign a contract with a long option period or a long inspection period.  Anything over 5 days should be a red flag.

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.  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.  We can give you dozens of references.

 

If you have a house to sell in Amarillo or Canyon,  give us a call.  We would be happy to make you an offer.  You can call us at 806-359-7653. You can also visit us online at Amarillo Real Estate Investors.

Amarillo House Flipping a Scam? | We Buy Amarillo Houses 806-359-7653

December 5th, 2012

Well I guess it was bound to happen again.  Another Real Estate training company is coming to town.  They have blasted commercials for the last month over just about every radio station in Amarillo.  “Make big money flipping houses right here in Amarillo!  You don’t need any cash or credit!  Come to our FREE seminar!”  In other words… “Get rich quick flipping houses!”

Recently News Channel 10 called me and asked if they could come interview us and ask a few questions about these types of seminars.  I hate being on camera but I would be crazy to turn down that kind of free publicity.  I asked them why they chose us.  They told me that they had done their research on my company and that, in their opinion, we were the most established and reputable company in Amarillo.  They knew that we have been in business for over 10 years.  They called around and checked us out with the Amarillo Association of Realtors and the Better Business Bureau.  They liked the fact that we have an actual office with regular business hours.  They just felt like we were the real deal.

During the interview they asked us many questions about Real Estate Investing here in Amarillo.  But their main focus was on the ‘free seminar.’  They wanted to know if it was a scam or not.   They also wanted to know if House Flipping in Amarillo was a scam or not.  I gave them my honest opinion.  There is no business in the world that can be a success without hard work.  I also told them that in order to have a successful house flipping company that you would need some capital and good credit.  I told them that a lot of people were going to have their hopes dashed once they found out that the ‘free’ seminar was just a big sales pitch.

But I also told them that if they were looking for victims that they were looking in the wrong place!  Sure many people would get caught up in the hype and excitement of this seminar and they would max out their credit cards.  Some would succeed and some would fail.  But the real victims are the unsuspecting home owners who would try to do business with these newly-trained, eager, so-called Real Estate Investors!

Every time a seminar like this comes to town there will be dozens of would-be Real Estate Investors that pop up.  They know what to say and they seem legit.  They know just enough to be dangerous.  The problem is that they have no money!  I mean, after all, isn’t that  what the seminar was focusing on?  People with no money and no credit?  How can this person possibly be a ‘House Buyer?’  They simply want to tie your house up with a contract and try to resell it to a real investor, like me.  They want to be a middle man or middle woman.  But make no mistake, they do not have the ability to buy your house.  They are a waste of your time.  The really sad thing is that they are dealing with people who are in really desperate situations.  People who have lost their jobs.  People who are facing divorce or foreclosure.  People who desperately need to sell fast.  These are the people who can least afford to play games when it comes to selling their house!  In the end, it is the unsuspecting homeowner who falls victim to real estate seminars and the fly-by-night investors that they create.

If you need to sell your house fast, make sure you deal with a real company.  A company who has been in business for years.  One who can give you many references.  One who is a member of the Better Business Bureau.  Ask lots of questions and do your homework.  If you would like more information on how to avoid being scammed click here  Are Real Estate Investors Trying to Scam You?  Of better yet, give me a call at 806-359-7653.
