Pamela MadoreThe Pamela Madore GroupPink House Team806-340-7630http://pinkhouseteam.com Are You Married Or Not? That should be an easy enough question.  At least I would think so.  I had a wedding ceremony and signed the papers and everything.  I am married. I think.  The minister was "The Minister of the Golden Keys."  My mother-in-law chose him. The younger generation doesn't always know what that line is. More and more of that generation aren't getting married but are still living together.  That is when the line can get a little blurred. Remembering,I only ask so I know who to put on the contract and who needs to be on the mortgage. Here are some of the responses I get when I ask the question "are you married"? I don't know No, but we have been together ??? years Yes, but I am separ...

It is hot here in Amarillo.   During this time of year in Amarillo it is very important that if you want to sell your house fast, you will turn down the air.  I know it may cost you a couple of hundred dollars extra by keeping it low but if it takes you 2-3 extra months to sell your house you have spent more than $200. Picture this.  It is 102 and I am showing potential buyers houses. We have narrowed their search down to 3 houses that fit their needs.    We go to house #1.  It meets all of their needs as we knew it would but by the time we have walked through the house once, we were so hot we left just to get into the air conditioned car. The thermostat was on 79.  They liked the house. House #2 equally matched their needs.  They were really interested in the back yard in this house. ...

Pamela MadorePink House TeamThe Pamela Madore GroupKeller Williams Realtyhttp://myamarillohomes.com806-340-7630 Owner Financing May Be A Viable Option When Buying Your Amarillo Home There are a number of reasons why you might need owner financing.  Some of these include credit issues, recent bankruptcy or foreclosure, self employed and can show no income. I get many questions about how this works so here are some answers. Simply put, the seller acts just like a bank.  You have a down payment and then you make monthly payments to the seller.  Often the down payment and the interest are higher  than if you went to the bank.  The reason for this is that the seller is taking a bigger risk.  If you can't qualify at a bank then that means things aren't perfect. Another thing to remember is th...

Pamela MadoreThe Pamela Madore Group806-290-1920http://myamarillohomes.com Oh No! Where Is My Property Line? The Tree Fell Down! When you are buying or selling real estate whether it is a house or land, it is important to have a survey.  Most lenders will require a survey because they want to know what they are lending on.  The survey will show you where your property lines are.  You can hire a local surveyor to go out and do their survey and stake the lines. Understanding how a survey is done is a little above my pay grade but I believe that surveyors base their surveys off from a reliable point that is staked and then measure from there.  Or something like that. I remember years ago when I sold real estate in Palm Beach County Florida, where was an area that the surveys overlapped.  T...

Pamela MadoreKeller Williams Realty806-340-7630http://myamarillohomes.com 6 Steps To Success Recently I watched a video done by Arnold Schwarzenegger (spell-check couldn't get that one) as he talked about 6 Steps To Success.  I really liked the information so I thought I would share it with my own twist. Who Do I Want To Be?   There is a BIG distinction between "who" and "what".  I hadn't really thought much about that but when it was pointed out it was an "aha" moment. This is something that we have to reach down really deep to figure out what the answer is.  And then it takes a lot of thinking.     The more I thought about it the more I knew that the answer was "to be someone who selflessly helps other to be better".  As much as I work and strive to build my business, I realize it is ...

I have two cats.  They hate me and they hate each other. This morning I was at my desk working on my computer.  I have an external mouse.  All of a sudden my cursor was jumping all over the place on my screen.  Every time I moved it, it moved right back.  It makes it very hard to get anything done that way. One of my two cats was really frustrating me because she was laying on the floor near me beating up my computer bag.  It was just too much.  This computer has been a lot of problems for me anyway. As it turned out, I have two external mouses (mice?) and one was in the computer bag. Apparently, the one in my bag was also turned on. My cat was playing with my mouse.  Go figure.
