Should I rent out my personal home? | Mitchell Property Group

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

So you are buying a bigger house. Should you sell your old house or rent it out? I get this question a lot. The answer is simple. Sell it! Never rent it unless you absolutely have to. Renters will decrease the value of your home. They will not take care of it like you did. Pretty soon you will get tired of being a landlord and decide to sell it. But now it’s not your homestead so if you make a profit you will have to pay taxes. If you would have sold it while it was your homestead there is a very good chance you would not pay tax on the profit. And you will either have to make repairs to get it back in good condition or sell it at a discount. I see this all the time! If you want to be a landlord sell your house and then go buy a rent house. But never rent out your personal home. Just take my word on this!

Real Estate Investor VS Realtor | Mitchell Property Group

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

Real Estate Investors are an interesting lot. Most of them are fiercely independent and extremely stubborn. They have Maverick personalities and are not big on rules. They always think outside the box. Most of the good ones I know have a knack for being able to quickly analyze a deal and pull the trigger.

Realtors are also a very interesting group. Most of them are very “by the book”. They like to follow the rules and have a difficult time thinking outside the box. Not all of them but many are this way. The good ones have the ability to put their ego aside and get a deal to the closing table.

Every day I get to work with Realtors and Investors. It can be very interesting at times to say the least! Most of them are top-notch. Emmy has a classic Realtor personality and I have a classic Investor personality. I help her to think outside of the box and she keeps me out of jail!

The cool thing about our company is that we are able to offer our clients both options.  I can make an all cash offer to buy the house as is. Emmy can show them what she could list the house for and they can compare options.  Either way we are happy to help.  Sometimes people are on the fence and have a hard time deciding which way to go.  In that case we always recommend listing the house first to see if it will sell.  If it doesn’t sell they can always take my cash offer at any time and we will waive the Realtor fees.  This lets our clients try to sell their house for as much money as possible while knowing that at any time they can sell the house to me if they need to.  Pretty cool huh?

If you have a house that you need to sell or list or maybe a combination of the both call us.  I guarantee you we can help!  Call us today at 806-359-7653 or visit us Sell My Amarillo House.

Give your Realtor a break! | We Buy Amarillo Houses 806-359-7653

Monday, October 19th, 2015

I just got a call from an angry seller. He said he had listed his house with a Realtor who was doing a terrible job. They had received a contract on their house. The contract stated that it was an as is sale but during the inspection period the new buyer discovered that the roof had hail damage. This meant that the house was not insurable. According to the contract the buyer could now either renegotiate or back out. The seller believed all of this was his Realtor’s fault! He believed that she should have convinced the buyers to go ahead and buy the house because it was an as is sale. He said he would rather just sell it to me and not tell his Realtor. This really upset me. You see, I’m married to a Realtor and I know how hard the good ones work. I asked for the address and pulled it up on the MLS. As it turned out this particular agent was doing a wonderful job marketing his property. And she had given him great advice on how to price it. I informed him that I would never go behind his agents back and buy his house. Besides being unethical, it is illegal. I also told him to just file an insurance claim and fix the dang roof!
I see this type of thing all the time. Many times Realtors get blamed for things that are out of their control. If a house is overpriced or in terrible condition the best Realtor in the world can’t sell it. In my opinion this is what a good Realtor will do. They will advise you on the proper list price. They will advise you on any repairs that need to be made before you put the house on the market. They will market the house aggressively. They will advise you when you should lower your price. They help you through the negotiation process and most importantly they help get the deal closed. But they are not miracle workers so give them a break!
I have to admit that I have seen some agents who do a very bad job and that is a completely different story. If you have a bad agent you have some real problems. Once your listing agreement expires call me. Until the listing agreement expires they will be owed a commission if the house sells.
If you have a house that you need to sell call me! We will happily cooperate with your agent if the house is listed. We work with Realtors every day so it is not a problem. You can visit us online at Sell My House or call us at 806-359-7653.

Are Vacant Houses Safe? | We Buy Amarillo Houses

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

It was Thanksgiving night in a nice neighborhood in Southwest Amarillo. We were about halfway through an extensive remodel when someone kicked in the back door and vandalized our house. They knocked out most of the windows including a large picture window in the front of the house. They knocked holes in the sheetrock. The bathroom plumbing was all exposed because we had gutted the bathroom. They shoved old rags and debris down the toilet drain lines. Then they went outside and turned on the water meeter and flooded the house. Luckily our foreman drove by the next morning and turned off the water. Otherwise it would have gone unnoticed until Monday. The damage totaled over $10,000.

The crazy thing is that this has happened to us many times over the years. It can happen in good and bad neighborhoods. Sometimes the damage can be much worse. Thank goodness our insurance policy covers vacant houses. Unfortunately most homeowner policies do not. The only thing worse than vandals is squatters. We have had many people squat in our houses over the years!

If you have a house that is vacant you should call and make sure your insurance policy covers vandalism. The best thing to do is sell it, rent it, list it, or move into it. Bad things happen when houses sit vacant too long.

How to Sell Your House Amarillo | Call 806-359-7653 today!

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

The Real Estate market in Amarillo is booming!  That is great news if you have a house that you need to sell.  But what if you have a house that is in bad condition?  How do you sell a house like that?

 

This is what the experts don’t always tell you.  There are really two Real Estate markets.  One for the pretty houses and one for the distressed houses 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 houses 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 it 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 House.

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

How can I sell my home fast in Amarillo TX?

If you need to sell your home you obviously want to get as much money as humanly possible.  That’s a no brainer.  If you mention selling your house everyone always focuses on price.  But what about the timing?

Timing is just as important as price in a Real Estate transaction.  Sometimes timing can even be the most important thing of all!  When you close is just as important as how much you get.  This is certainly true if you are dealing with a job transfer, divorce, or foreclosure.  Sometimes people do not have an emergency that causes them to need to sell fast, they just don’t want to wait for months and months!

If you need to sell your house fast give us a call.  We can close in as little as three or four days if necessary.  We pay all the closing costs and we take the house as is.  You don’t have to worry about fixing anything or cleaning anything.  We are very easy to work with and we are very aggressive when making offers.  Call us today at 806-359-7653 for more information.  Sell My Home Fast Amarillo TX

How Can I Sell My House Fast in Amarillo TX?

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

The worst thing about Real Estate is that it just seems to take so long to get a house sold!  I worked in sales before I became a Real Estate investor.  I remember how cool it was to meet a customer and close a sale in the same day.  When I started selling houses it drove me crazy that the process took so long!  From the time I would list a house for sale until we closed would usually take a minimum of three to four months.

What if you don’t have three or four months to sell your house?  What if you need it sold in a week?  If that is the case give me a call.  I buy houses in their as is condition, I pay the closing costs, and I can close in a week or less if you need me to.  Even if I can’t buy your house I can probably give you some great information that would probably help you.  Give me a call today at 806-359-7653 of visit my website at Sell My House Fast Amarillo TX

I Buy Houses Amarillo TX | Sell My House Fast 806-359-7653

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

2012 has been a very encouraging year for Real Estate sales.  There is little doubt that artificially low interest rates are driving the housing market.  People who have been nervous about buying a home have taken advantage of ridiculously low rates.  This means that sales are up.

I get calls every day from people who need to sell their house fast. They pose a very interesting question.  If our market is so good, why has my house not sold?  In my opinion there are several reasons.

There are still a lot of houses on the market so competition is fierce.  To make matters worse, it’ still not that easy to get a loan.  Even though rates are low buyers are more picky than ever.  And they want a deal!  The houses that are selling right now are the ones that are in great condition AND priced at a great deal.

In my opinion, the segment of our market that is still very slow is fixer-uppers.  Houses that need work are very difficult to sell.  There are still tons of bank foreclosures on the market.  These houses present the greatest competition because they usually need work and they are priced at a discount.  In the past a person could list a fixer-upper on the market and it would sell.  Now it is not that easy.

So if you have a house that needs work you better be in it for the long haul.  Don’t expect it to sell quickly.   If you are thinking ‘how can I sell my house fast’ then we need to talk.  I buy houses in Amarillo and Canyon TX.  I buy houses in all price ranges.  Even the big nice pretty ones.  But the ones we buy the most of are the fixer uppers.  These are the houses that really have a hard time selling on the open market.

If you need to sell your house fast, or if you have a house that needs a lot of work, give me a call.  I buy houses in Amarillo TX from people just like you all the time.  I pay all of the closing costs and take care of all the details.  I buy the houses as is so there is no need to fix anything or even clean up.  Give me a call today.  I bet I can help.  806-359-7653.
