Amarillo Home Buyer | Amarillo Real Estate

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Usually things slow down as summer draws to an end.  But the last few weeks our phones have been ringing off the hook! Why are people looking for an Amarillo Home Buyer?  And do you REALLY need a realtor?

  1. The Real Estate market for ‘fixer uppers’ is still slow. The market in Amarillo is better now than it has been since 2008.   Nice, pretty houses are selling.  If you have a house that needs work however, it is a completely different story!  The market is flooded with foreclosures.  These are distressed properties that are priced at a discount.  This is your competition if you have a house that needs work.  This segment of the market is very slow.
  1. People are tired of using Realtors. The best Realtor in the world can’t guarantee that your house will sell.  Most Realtors do a good job. It just takes them several months to get your house sold.  Sometimes it is because they are not marketing the property correctly or following up on showings. Other times it has nothing to do with the Realtor.  When you use a Realtor you can count on multiple showings.  Some people don’t want to keep their house neat and clean at all times.  Many Realtors will want you to make repairs before they take on the listing.  For some people this is just not an option.
  1. People can’t afford their property. Many people have no idea just how expensive it can be to own a home.  First you have your house payment, then property taxes (which will be due in January), and then you have insurance.  These are the big three.  But don’t forget about maintenance!  It just flat out 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.  Or visit me online at  Amarillo Home Buyer

How can I sell my house fast in Amarillo?

Selling your house is not nearly as easy as it once was.  But even when the market was at the peak it still took about 3 months from start to finish to get a check.  Now that our market has slowed down it is taking closer to 6 months for many houses to sell.  Part of the problem is that the economy in general is not as good, but the main problem is that the banks don’t want to make loans on houses the way they once did.  It’s pretty hard to get a loan unless you have very good credit and you are buying a house that is in great condition.

Another problem is that there are a lot of houses for sale right now.  This means competition!  There are more bank-owned (Foreclosure) houses for sale than ever.  These houses usually need some work and can be bought at a big discount.  So if you are selling a house that needs work you need to look at what bank-owned foreclosures are selling for in your neighborhood.  This is your competition.

What does all of this mean to you?  Well, if you have a house that you need to sell fast these are some facts that you should consider!  You need to understand the market and you need to know your competition.  For some people, selling to an investor like me makes a lot of sense.  Especially if you need to sell fast and your house needs repairs.

Every month I buy houses in Amarillo and Canyon from people who don’t want to wait for months and months to get their house sold.  I can pay cash and close in a few days if you need me to.  I take the house in as-is condition so you don’t have to make any repairs.  I pay all of the closing costs and take care of all of the details.  Even if I am not able to buy your house I can probably give you some good information that will help you.  If you would like a fast, confidential, all cash offer on your house call me today at 806-359-7653.  And don’t worry, I’m not the kind of guy who will try to twist your arm and convince you to sell me your house.  I will just give you some good information and you can do whatever works best for you and your family.  You can also visit my website at Sell Your Amarillo House.
