Want to know the value of your house?

Assessed Value? Market Value? Appraised Value? What Is My House Worth?

What is the correlation between assessed value and market value on your Amarillo home?

Working with buyers and sellers every day, I often hear that the "appraised value" is such and such.  What they are referring to is the value that the Potter/Randall Appraisal District  (PRAD) bases the taxes on for each house.  

What I hear most often is (mostly from other Realtors) is that the property is priced at  X amount below PRAD.  Does that necessarily make it a good deal? I was curious about how PRAD comes up with their value so I called to find out.  

Let me say, however, that for me it was a little complicated so don't take what I write here as gospel.  If you have a question, please call PRAD yourself.  





First, let me explain how an appraiser reaches "market value" when you are selling your house.  The appraiser will visit the house in order to see what the condition of the property is.  He take pictures, measurements …

The Pink House Team presents their new listing at 2000 Havenville Dr. in Amarillo, Texas just south of Tradewinds.

What a beautiful custom built home in a quiet neighborhood just south of town. Located in a new subdivision, South Haven, 2000 Havenville is at the end of the street and on a corner lot. 


The builder is a detail person and you can see that  from viewing the inside. Every detail was well thought and executed in a professional manner.  This is not a typical new construction house.

Some of the features include, granite in kitchen and bath, stainless steel appliances, 12' tray ceiling in the living area, crown molding, tile showers with overhead shower heads, and tile and carpet floors, sprinkler system, and finished interior garage.   Each room is tastefully painted.  My personal favorite, however, is the vaulted ceiling in the master closet.  You can line up a 100 pair of shoes on the extra shelving! All of this at the v…

It May Be Easier To Qualify For A Mortgage Than You Think!

DID YOU KNOW.......?
I help a lot of people find their owner finance/investor finance house.  What you probably don't know is that more than 50% of the people that contact me about owner financing, I am able to get them financed.  The advantage to that is that you have many more houses to choose from.  And I am often able to get the seller to pay your closing costs.  On an FHA loan the down payment is 3.5%--on $100,000 purchase price that is only $3500!
Do yourself a favor and try to get qualified.  I can go down to 580 on credit scores.  If you are less than that, we can often increase the scores within 30-60 to make it work.

How Interest Rates Affect The Value Of Your Amarillo Home

How Interest Rates Affect The Value Of Your Home

Is that true?  Can interest rates affect the value of your home?  Amarillo home values can definitely can be affected by interest rates.  Let me show you how.

How Much Can I Afford?

When a buyer decides to buy a house we normally think that a buyer is looking at the priceof the house. In reality, however, buyers are looking for the cost of the house.   In other words, in most cases, the buyer really doesn't care too much about the price, they simply want to know how much it will cost per month. When interest rates are constantly fluctuating, a buyer who is qualified for $200,000 today may not be tomorrow.

The Rule Of Thumb

Buyers determine the price of a house.  Simple.  It doesn't matter what I think or you think or how much money you have in it.  It only matters what a buyer will pay.  Keeping that in mind, the rule of thumb is that for every 1% rise in interest rates buyers qualify …

Oops! I Can't Blame My Realtor For Everything!

If you are a seller in Amarillo and you are frustrated because your house hasn't sold, let me give you a few tips that might help you. Remember this is a joint effort! 

Be aware that the buyer determines whether or not the house sells.  My job as a Realtor is to make sure that your house is everywhere to be found.  Most buyers start online looking for a house so every nook and cranny must have your house listed.

Be sure that your house is easy to show.  Recently, I had a house that the seller was very anxious to sell but an out of town buyer, only in town for one day, wanted to see it and the sellers weren't able to accommodate. They bought a house that day.


Be satisfied that all areas of the house inside and out are available for pictures.  If you have a dog in the back yard be sure to move it for pictures.  Buyers love to know what the back yard looks like.

Be convinced that it is priced right.  Remember that the price has nothing…

Do You Want Me To Pre-Pack The Kitchen Sink Too?!?

Pink House Team
Keller Williams Realty 
806-340-7630 

When you go on vacation do you pre-pack the week before or do you pack the night before? The last time I went on vacation I packed the night before and forgot my toothbrush and my Via coffee from Starbucks. For me, two critical things. 

Selling your house can have the same elements. Pre-packing simply means getting ready in advance. The first 7-14 days of your house being on the market are critical. That is when the most buyers will be coming through your house. That first impression will often make or break the sale.

Here are some pre-packing tips. 

Take family photos off the walls and book stands. You want the buyers to picture themselves in their new house. 


Less is more. Anything you can live without during the time of the sale, pack up and put in storage. If you are like me I have things in my house I haven't used for years. Maybe a garage sale in advance of putting the house on the market would work. 

Make sure that …

Seller Tips For Vacant Houses

Pink House Team
Keller Williams Realty
806-340-7630

You have moved out of town and had to leave your house vacant while it sells.  There are a number of things that you can do to give yourself some peace of mind.



Be sure that you leave the utilities on and keep the payments current.  You may have to keep in touch with the utility companies until you are sure they have your new mailing address. Utility companies have been known to make mistakes. You don't want to let it slip through the cracks and have your heat turned off, especially in winter!  
Unfortunately, there are thieves in this world.  Some people ride around searching for vacant houses.  A vacant house with a for sale sign in the yard is especially tempting.  Be sure to make it look occupied. Instead of just leaving lights on, put lights in different parts of the house on timers so they are coming on and shutting off in different rooms at different times. Leaving the light on over the sink may be a viable option.Most police d…

Why In The World Should I Keep My House Hot?

KEEP YOUR HOUSE WARM IN COLD WEATHER

During the cold winter months it is normal behavior to turn the thermostat down when you leave the house in the morning.  I am going to tell you why this is a bad idea if you are trying to sell your house in Amarillo during the winter.

Picture this (and this is quite normal for Amarillo).  It is 40 degrees with a wind chill of factor making it feel like 30.  A brave and fearless Realtor (me) is showing houses to "in a hurry" buyers.  They have to buy something now.  



We drive up in front of your house and it looks nice.  By now we are all freezing and can't wait to get inside of a nice warm house.  After fumbling with the key and frozen fingers, we go into the house expecting a wave of heat only to find that the thermostat was set to 65.  That is not as cold as outside but we are all "in a hurry" to get back in the warm car and move on.

The next house looks equally as good and wh…
