Are Real Estate Investors Scam Artists? | Real Estate Investors Amarillo TX

If I needed to sell my house to a Real Estate Investor I have to admit that I would be a little skeptical.  And for good reason!  It seems like there is always some investor making the news who tried to scam home owner out of their house.  It also seems like a lot of Real Estate investors are, well, for lack of a better word, just plain weird.    Considering the fact that your home is probably your biggest asset, it pays to chose wisely when considering Real Estate investment companies!

Let me say this… just because someone says they are a Real Estate Investor doesn’t always mean that they are a legitimate company.  I could tell you plenty of stories of people who tried to work with a rookie investor who ended up regretting it!

So how do you know if you are dealing with a reputable company?  Here are some suggestions:

1.  Try to deal with only local Real Estate Investors.  This makes checking up on a company much easier.

2.  Ask for and call references.  This is so important.  A good company should have plenty of satisfied customers.

3.  Check with the Better Business Bureau.  This isn’t always a completely reliable source, but it is still a good place to start.

4.  Insist on using a local title company.

5.  Meet the person face to face if possible.

6. Ask lots of questions.  If something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t.

7. Have a local attorney review the contract.

It is important to remember that not all real estate investment companies are bad.   We buy Amarillo houses but we also help people.  Sometimes we advise people to do something besides selling us their house.  They just look at us kind of funny.  But that’s just how we do it.  We have to live and work here in Amarillo 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.

If you are looking for a legitimate Real Estate Investor give me a call.  I would love to visit with you about your house.  You can call me at 806-359-7653 or visit my website at Amarillo Real Estate Investor.
