How do I find out what my home is worth in Amarillo?

There are a few ways to find out the value of your home--or at least a general idea.  Each way has its value but only a laser focus appraisal will tell you what it is worth. 


Here are some examples of places to look

I randomly picked a house that just sold and this is the information that I found.

Property was listed at $136,900


Zillow Zestimate        $129,000Potter/Randall Appraisal District  $130,661Comparative Market Analysis  $136,500The property sold for $134,500

Here is another example:

The market value of your house is really only, "what a buyer will pay in an open market based on the value they see".  That is the ultimate test and the bottom li…

Owner Financing. Smart Thing For A Seller?

Pink House Team Keller Williams Realty 806-340-7630
OWNER FINANCING AND SELLERS
Is owner financing something that sellers should consider?  There are many advantages to owner financing also called seller financing.  Let's talk about a few.
I am not an accountant but if you talk to yours you may find that selling your house and receiving a big lump sum of money may have  a bigger tax liability than if you financed and took the money over a period of time. Your banker may say that they can take the money and put it into a CD and pay you peanuts.  It is safe but not working for you. Your financial adviser may say put it in a money market and stocks.  We have all seen how that can work out. Owner financing may be the answer you are looking for.
In a seller financing transaction, you the seller are acting as a bank.  A buyer comes in and gives you a down payment and you receive monthly payments of principal and interest.  The interest rate is higher for you because there is some risk.  Some …

First Time Home Buyer Does Not Automatically Mean Low Credit Scores.

Pink House Team Keller Williams Realty 806-340-7630
FIRST TIME HOMEBUYER
Just because you are a first time homebuyer does not mean you automatically have low credit scores.  Just because you have medical collections does not mean that you have low credit scores.  Just because you made some bad choices years ago does not mean you have low credit scores.
Many of the people that I help get into homes don't really believe that they can get a mortgage.  They may be discouraged because they applied for something and got turned down.  Or maybe someone told them that it was really hard to get a mortgage so they never try.

One of my specialties is mortgages and financing, including owner financing.   If you are a first-time homebuyer (or even if you have purchased  before) and aren't sure what to do, my job is to help you meet your goals.  And that may be to buy your first home!
There are steps that we take to accomplish this:

Mature Trees On Your Front Lawn In Amarillo Could Cause A Problem

MATURE TREES IN AMARILLO

Amarillo does not have a lot of trees.  They either get blown away or die of thirst.  Because of that, many people when buying a house want mature trees.
The only place mature trees can be found are in older,established neighborhoods.  

The obvious reason for this is that the trees were planted when the house was built.  Being in a close environment, it is harder for the wind to whisk them away during normal Amarillo wind.  There is, however, another reason. It may be less obvious.

Trees need water.  According to US Climate, Amarillo receives an average total of 20.31 inches per year. According to the American Forests Website  "In one day, one large tree can lift up to 100 gallons of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air."

My math skills may not be up to par, but my gut tells me that there is not enough water in the ground for the average large tree.  So where does the water come from?

1013 S. Carolina Is Not a House.  It Is A Home.

Haven't you felt the difference?  This home has had lots of love and family and friends that have made it a home.  Unfortunately, the current owners have to make a move and they want someone that is looking for a home to love it as much as they do.

Let me show you a home!

You Are Selling My Amarillo House So What Is That Blue Thing On My Door?

When the Pink House Team lists your Amarillo house, in addition to putting the sign in the yard, we put a blue thing on your door.  This is the box where your key is kept and other Realtors need a magic key to open it.  Here is a short video showing you how it works.






Hope that was helpful!  Give me a call and I will put one on your door, too!

Selling My Amarillo House Was A Nightmare!

Pink House Team
Keller Williams Realty 806-340-7630
SELLING MY AMARILLO HOUSE WAS A NIGHTMARE.....
And it still isn't sold.  Recently I was told this story (paraphrased) by a very dissatisfied seller.
"We wanted to sell our house because it is simply too small. We called the Realtor we used when we bought the house because she was awesome.  Well, she retired and referred us to another Realtor.  That is when the problem started.
My husband and I work different shifts so he is home asleep during the day. We needed some notice so that he wouldn't be in bed.  Apparently that never got relayed because two different times a Realtor just walked in and caught my husband in his boxers.
The Realtor put a sign in the yard but it broke and he never came to fix it. The only description we saw about the house anywhere was that it was a 2/1.  In effect, no one even knew it was for sale.
You contacted us and told us our listing had expired.  We didn't even know that.  Very dissatisfied."…
