How To Sell Your House Fast

Recently I had an experience that is a perfect example of how to get your home sold fast.  This home at been on the market with another Realtor for 6 months.  The listing expired and the sellers listed with me and it sold in three days.  Now don't get me wrong, I am not a magician.  I just know how to sell your house fast.

There are three things that come into play.  My experience is that all three have to be in place in order to get a fast sale.  

The first one is price.  As always this is the trickiest. The point of this is that neither I nor the seller determine that number. See what buyers might be saying about your house right now. The buyer has all of the control of that number. Sometimes that can be very frustrating and seem unfair but nevertheless that is the way it is. 

An experienced Realtor who knows the area can take the current market sales and competition in the a…

How Much Does It Cost To Sell Your House?

There are a lot of things to think about when figuring out how much it costs to sell your house. here are title fees, commissions, attorneys, surveyors, and a myriad of other costs.  Let's break this down a bit. Normally we use a seller's net sheet.

But before we do that let's talk about any repairs that may need to be done.  There are some costs that will get your money back and there are others that won't. Remember, we are in a beauty contest.

The absolutely most important thing, in my opinion,  is curb appeal.  Green lawns and a tree or two make a big difference.  If your driveway is dirt or gravel be sure that there are no potholes.  There should be no odds and end in the yard.  Be the buyer for a moment.  Would they like the outside of your house?

Three Bedroom Two Bath Houses For Sale Under $200,000 Amarillo TX

Three bedroom, two bath houses are the most common house you will find in Amarillo. I am finding, however, that when you go over $200,000 people are looking for maybe a 4th bedroom and another bathroom for a guest bath.

A current search of three bedroom two bath houses for sale in Amarillo shows 332 active listings, 127 pending, and 598 closed in the last six months. Under $200,000 3/2 houses shows a very robust market.  


Of those that sold the average square footage was 1609 with an average square foot price of $82.90.

You can, of course, narrow your search for changing your search, for instance to say, three bedroom two bath houses for sale between $150,000 and $200,00. It may be that they know that anything under $150,000 is not going to suit your needs.

By changing that criteria you can narrow your search to 115 active, 42 pendi…
