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

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.
