Should I Sell My House or Rent It? | Sell My House Amarillo

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

First let me start out by saying that I think everyone should own a rent house.  There are a lot of headaches but the long-term benefits are great.  But what about renting out your personal home?  Is that a good idea?

Here is a classic scenario.  A young couple wants to sell their starter home and move into a bigger house.  Their house is in great condition and they have built up some equity over the years.  They owe $80,000 and the house is worth around $100,000.  They rent their cute little house out  for $1000 per month and that covers their payment of $800 and leaves them $200 left over each month.  Everyone is happy.

Fast forward three years down the road and the picture is not so bright.  They have gone through four tenants in a three year time period.  Two had to be evicted.  Their house has been destroyed multiple times.  They have spent nights and weekends painting and making repairs every time the tenant moved out.  They had to replace a sewer line and an air conditioner condenser.  In other words, they are broke and tired.  So they decide to sell.

The problem is that now their house is no longer worth $100,000.  Now it is worth about $75,000.  So they will have to either completely remodel the house or sell it for a loss.  Neither of which they are excited about doing.

It is usually a terrible decision to make your personal home into a rental.  It is much better to sell it while it is in good condition.  If you have lived there for over two years (one year for fist time home owners) you will not owe any taxes on your gain.  This in and of itself is reason enough to not convert your home to a rental.

If you want to get into the rent business find a house that is best suited for those purposes.  When you have a chance to sell your personal home, take the money and run!

Sell Your House Without a Realtor | Amarillo Real Estate 806-359-7653

Monday, April 14th, 2014

The real estate market in Amarillo TX has greatly improved from what it was just a few years ago.  This is great news if you have a house to sell.  The biggest problem right now is finding someone who can get approved for a loan.  During the Real Estate boom of the early 2000’s you could sell your house by simply putting a sign in the yard.  But now the Realtor have all of the buyers.  So this brings me to my point.  How can you sell your house fast without using a Realtor?

I am probably asked this question at least once every day.  I could go on and on for hours about the mistakes that I see home owners make, but the biggest mistake of all is pricing the 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 the first critical step to getting it sold.  You have got to get the most you can 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, 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 would like more information on this subject visit give me a call at 806-359-7653.

If you have a house that you need to sell fast you can also 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 sell your house fast Amarillo

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

Sell My House Amarillo TX

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

I just got a call from a guy who I talked to about 6 months ago.  He said “I’d like to sell my house in Amarillo TX, are you the company who does that?”   I laughed and said that he had the right place.

We weren’t able 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.

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 2% 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 said “I would have been better off to just sell my house to you!”

If you find you self thinking, “I really need to sell my house in Amarillo TX as fast as possible,” then give me a call.  Sometimes it’s just better to sell your house to an investor like me, especially if it needs work.  Remember, it’s the bottom line that counts!  Call today at 806-359-7653!  Mitchell Property Group—Sell My House in Amarillo TX.

Why Sell Your Amarillo House to a Real Estate Investor?

Monday, September 17th, 2012

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 think 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 you don’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.  It 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.  I can close in 3 days.  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.

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 much more exposure than you ever could.  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 your 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 I offered six months earlier.

There are several advantages to selling your house to 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.
