We Buy Amarillo Houses | Why Are Investor Offers So Low?

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Every week I make a lot of offers on a lot of houses.  I end up getting many of them accepted.  Often times people ask me to explain how I come up with what price to offer.  I know that what they really mean is, why is my offer so low?

First it is important to understand a net offer as opposed to a gross offer. Many times a homeowner will hear that their neighbor’s house sold for a certain price.  Let’s just say $100,000.  But what they don’t realize is that their neighbor actually walked away with much less.  They had to pay 6% to their Realtor, 2% for their own closing costs, 3% in buyer closing costs, and they had to make repairs that added up to $3,000.  So they actually netted $86,000.  Since I pay all of the closing costs and don’t require any repairs to be made my offers are net offers.

Second it is important to understand the difference between the list price and the sales price.  Often times a Realtor will advise someone to list their house for entirely too much money.  Let’s use the neighbor for example.  A Realtor may have advised them to list their house for $115,000.  Three or four months later the homeowner realizes that they have over-priced their house and lowers it to $105,000.  Now it is priced correctly.  But the national average for negotiating is about 5%.  So it ends up selling for about $100,000 and they walk away with around $86,000.  Big difference!

When we buy Amarillo houses we pay all of the closing costs.  We take the house as is.  We can close very quickly.  We must be able to buy the house at a price that will allow us to make repairs and sell it for a profit.  When you compare our offer with the amount that you would actually walk away with if you used a Realtor you will see that our offers are actually not that bad and our terms are outstanding.  If you would like a free quote give us a call today at 806-359-7653 or visit us online at We Buy Amarillo, TX Houses.

We Buy Amarillo Houses | Why Use a Realtor?

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Why would anyone ever sell their house to a ‘We Buy Amarillo Houses’ company?  Why not just sell it with a Realtor?

This is actually a great question.  It is a question I am frequently asked.  There are actually several reasons why working with an investor may be a better option than listing with a Realtor.

  1. Timing.  We buy Amarillo houses and close in as little as three days if needed.  No Realtor can get a house sold that fast.
  2. Condition.  Some houses are in such bad condition that they will not qualify for a bank loan.  There is very little chance that they will ever sell with a Realtor.
  3. Hardship.  Sometimes people fall behind on payments.  Sometimes people get divorced or get a job transfer.  There are many hardship situations that investors are much better suited to handle.  In most of these situations people just need to know that on a certain date that their house will close.  No ifs ands or buts.
  4. Area.  Some neighborhoods in Amarillo are in decline.  It is very difficult to sell in these areas.  Most of the houses in these areas are rentals.  Realtors often have a hard time selling houses in these areas.

Now don’t get me wrong.  I like Realtors.  Heck my wife is a Realtor so I understand how hard they work.  If you have a house that is in good condition, in a good area, and you don’t mind waiting for several months so that you can get top dollar then you need to call a Realtor.  But if you find yourself in one of the situations mentioned above then give me a call at 806-359-7653 or visit me online at We Buy Amarillo, TX Houses.

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.

We Buy Amarillo Houses in the snow! | 806-359-SOLD (7653)

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Right now it is 6 degrees in Amarillo TX and the wind is gusting up to 50 mph.  It’s very cold.  The snow is blowing sideways and visibility is not very good.   But the good news is that I just bought a house!  I just left a house that had frozen pipes.  A line burst in the attic and flooded the house.  It was a disaster.  The lady who sold me the house called Serve Pro and they told her that it would cost about $4,000 to get the house cleaned up.  I can get it done for much less.  So it made a lot of sense for her to sell the house to me.  Instead of worrying about the clean up she will be cashing a check in about 3 days.

When we buy Amarillo houses we take them in as is condition.  We don’t even want you to clean up!  We pay  all of the closing costs and take care of all the details.  We make it a very easy transaction.   If you are even thinking of selling a house that needs repairs or needs to be sold quickly you should call us today.  Even if it is snowing outside, we would like to make you an offer!   Call us at 359-SOLD (7653) or visit our website to find out how cool we are!  We Buy Amarillo Houses
