None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I was left feeling that the only thing this guy cared about was getting me off the phone, and avoiding directly answering any question about the property I was interested in. He gave me the access code for the lock and told me if I had any other questions I would pretty much find the answer(s) at the property but that he did not know anything about the neighborhood, the city, or even the property but the purchase price. I won't deal with them again.

Lou was spot on. My partner and I have bought many properties but had not dealt with anyone like econohomes before so we were skeptical. Lou stayed in touch and kept every thing on track. We will be buying more properties from Lou when the opportunity arises.

Today we closed on our Econohomes investment property and the complete process was professional, courteous, straightforward and fast! Our sales associate, Lou, was prompt with calls, precise with information during the negotiation process and kept us informed during our entire experience. If you are a due diligence investor who doesn't mind researching for yourself and understand the AS IS disclaimer on these properties, then I firmly believe that Econohomes can help you find a home for a great price.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
To begin with; I had to press for a response. Then, was passed from one contact to another. After a couple weeks or more passed; we finally began negotiations. The contact, put me off weeks at a time claiming a daughter got the flu, then he got it. That would be understandable. But then, he claimed wellness, was going to call back with info I requested on the property. He never called back, and after weeks of non professional nonsense i moved on. A local Agent tried to make contact on my behalf, and was never acknowledged. I decided to forget the property, though it had many qualities I was looking for. I've purchased 2 other properties through my local agent, both deals went well. Less ... More

I have nothing but good things to say about Econohomes. I recently purchased my first investment property and went through Econohomes to do so. My sales rep was Lou Cuneo and he did an amazing job for me. I was a little green when this whole process started but Lou did a great job of educating me on how the whole process worked and showed tremendous patience and understanding. I felt like he always had my best interest in mind. In these situations I'm always concerned that someone is trying to pull the wool over my eyes and swindle me out of my money but that was never the case with Econohomes. They were honest and upright throughout the entire process and I give them my highest recommendation. Less ... More

Contacted Brandon about a house today and immediately made a full price offer with the condition that they provide short term financing that they advertise and provide clear title. This is on a remote property that is in poor condition in the photos that were taken who knows when. I received this reply "I'm sorry but we cannot accommodate those terms." That was it. When I contacted again to ask "so...is that it?" He asked if I could get financing and have I talked to a bank? Well they were the ones advertising everywhere short term financing for investors. Do they really thing a bank is going to lend money on house with a bad roof that's been neglected for years? This is what I get for dealing with these mickey mouse operators on craigslist who don't disclose their terms upfront of provide any details about their properties. It's like getting your teeth pulled trying to get any information from these bozos and I guess that's by design. This place will fall to the ground and they can sell the land eventually,..I guess.

Response fromEconohomes LLC
Good Afternoon Mr Melosky, I am sorry you feel we did not disclose our terms up front or provide details on our property. All of the information you would need to do business with us can be found on our website at www.econohomes.com; including a description of each property and financing terms available. It is my understanding you were asking for terms of $900 down and $500 a month for 36 months and Brandon responded that we could not accommodate those terms. We have worked with investors in the past that have been able to get personal or rehab loans to purchase our properties which would explain why Brandon asked you if you had spoken with a bank. If there is anything else we may be able to further explain or if you have any questions, please contact me directly at 512-334-1461. Less ... More

I found my home while driving around, had never heard of Econohomes before. When I placed the call, the agent was very helpful in explaining to me the details about the home, the process in which Econohomes operates, and all the specifics of attempting to purchase one of their properties. I learned more than I ever expected from this agent, and he was very helpful in guiding me along. The entire purchase process took exactly one week from offer acceptance to close, and I moved into my home that same day. I would highly recommend doing business with Econohomes. Less ... More

I am a new investor, and this is my first non-occupancy home. (I have bought four houses for myself previously.) The folks at Econohomes were easy to deal with and made the process as painless as a real estate transaction can be these days. Things moved at a pace I could handle, and every message was replied to with politeness and professionalism. I don't know if landlording will suit me, but if it does, I would not hesitate to purchase from Econohomes again.

These guys seem ok at first, but watch out for extra fees and hidden costs that they don't tell you about until you read the fine print! I tried to buy a house in Waco from Econohomes. We agreed to a price via email at $21,000 plus an approx. $1000 transaction fee. Now this sounds like a steal, but it's a normal price for the neighborhood, and taking into consideration that the house is trashed & not livable. But that's fine. I know how to fix it up. It's worth maybe $50k in good condition. When I got the paperwork I realized that they had tacked on $2,800 in property taxes to my purchase price. This was never mentioned during our extensive negotiations via email. Eventually they took off the back taxes after I complained alot and they sent new paperwork. It was only then while reading through the 30+ pages of fine print that I saw that their financing adds a $995 "renewal" fee to the loan EVERY YEAR until it's paid off. Not only that but it adds 3 more points to the loan every year. This is on top of the 18% interest (which is what I had agreed to). I think these guys are completely underhanded, shady, and I wouldn't touch a financing deal with them at this point. Who knows what other "surprises" or bait & switch are hidden in the fine print.

My experience with Econohomes has been fabulous... The only two issues I experienced were two relatively important discrepancies; the property informed me electrical was working and intact, yet when visiting the property we noticed all wiring had been removed. I asked about reducing the price, only to be informed (at their end) they had notes informing them wiring was not intact. Second issue- while reviewing the contract papers regarding payments, they did not match from the site to the actual. To me, 'both' are/were very important factors, they both relate to the main issue- money, and I don't like those kind of surprises. I/we did close on the property though.....with the as is...

Overall A. Why not A+? Because it takes a while for them to work all the deeds, title work etc. If you don't want to wait then look elsewhere. However many of the reviews are very unfair. One's own ignorance is used as a reason to blame the company. The company is very good. One just needs to understand, "as is" means "as is". Also it appears when they buy in bulk they may not be actually buying but buying the right to sell it. However you want to say it this is a great company that I would be very happy to work with again. Bill McM. Less ... More

I viewed a house on Zillow so I contacted Econohomes for more information. To my dismay, the customer service rep had no knowledge regarding the home. I inquired with some specific questions, but the rep advised me that he knew as much as was stated on Zillow, and nothing further because he has never actually viewed the house. Of course not, the company is located in Texas! The rep stated that, after I view the house and if I make an offer, more information should be provided. I cannot understand making an offer on a house without knowing the particulars, and to make a 3 hour drive to view a house with such little information at hand is absurd! Less ... More

Econohomes was great to work with. We are just average people looking for a great house at a great price that we could raise our family in. The process of buying a house from Econohomes is differant than buying through a realtor but if you do your homework and understand the whole process it is a breeze. I do suggest: DO YOUR HOMEWORK on the property you are wanting to buy. Look it over with a fine tooth comb, call the city and county and inquire about back taxes and any other fees attached to the house. Do your own independent title search, buy title insurance and to be sure all the paperwork is in order and everything is in place close with a closing company. I DONT feel like econohomes was trying to hide anything or "pull one over on us", Brandon Tully was very helpful, understand to all of our concerns and was on top of everything for closing. Our experiance with Econohomes was a very good one and we love our new house!!! Less ... More

I would never recommend a company that sells a property, makes you pay for a clear title, then find out they failed to disclose Econohomes did not notify the buyer failed to notify the buyer of back taxes. Also, Econohomes sent a sheet notifying the buyer that the commission was paid to the local agent...when in fact it was not...I would not trust this company in any additional dealing.

My rep was Amber W. she was great. The whole deal with EH is a little tough. I have real estate experence.( Prior Agent) and I still hired an attorney to help with due dilligence and handle the money transfer.I still think this was the best way to go. Cheap peace of mind. also got tittle insurance. If you understand what you are buying(distressed property) from whom you are buying( NOT a listing agent) you should be able to make a smart buy. This is not for first time buyers, people who should work with an agent or someone who need bank fin.(the trailing title is a bugaboo for most banks).

I'd submitted an inquiry (with 3 brief questions) via Zillow to Econohomes regarding a property I was considering as an investor. The next day I called to ask if they could get any information on whether the plumbing or electricity worked at the site. The first Econohomes rep insisted rudely that Econohomes had no such property (I assured him I was looking at it on Zillow), and if they did, that they would know nothing about my questions on the property. He demanded to know which agent I';d been assigned to (I was not yet assigned, so I did not know). He seemed combative & argumentative (the initial phone contact should be someone with a better phone manner, who can better represent the company). He eventually realized he'd made a mistake entering the property number, and acknowledged that Econohomes did list the property with Zillow. I've worked with many real estate agents, and was shocked by his lack of basic professional courtesy, so I did some research on the Internet and read both positive (was not sure if they were legitimate) & negative reviews about Econohomes. A few days later, a VERY pleasant, informative agent called. We made arrangements for me to view the property (he gave me the combination) and my husband and I looked it over. We considered buying the property, but it soon sold. Less ... More

I have been purchasing properties from Econohomes for over two years. I am very pleased and have benefitted significantly from this business relationship as they have enabled small time investors like myself , with not much capital, to benefit from low real estate prices . I have purchased properties way below market value and have benefitted tremendously from their in house financing. This in turn has allowed me to grow my rental business. Their staff is very courteous and displays a high level of professionalism. My account representative Traci Stradford is always prompt in responding to my queries. I have also found her to be very honest and forthright in her responses.

Econohomes is the ultimate real estate broker. I have to be honest and state that I was highly skeptical when I first began dealing with Econohomes. The process seemed too easy. My real estate attorney warned that Econohomes' non-traditional way of doing business was too risky. Against their advice, I went forward with my first purchase and couldn't be happier. My experience with Econohomes and John has been exceptional. They are honest, trustworthy, experienced and prompt. I've purchased two properties from Econohomes in the past year and I'm negotiating the purchase of a third property now. Econohomes makes home purchase affordable and easy. I highly recommend Econohomes. Less ... More

If you're ready to get started working on homes, Econohomes can give you that edge in the market. No bidding wars, No banks, No BS. The process is professional, personable, and quite painless. They deliver on their word with great customer service and reliability. The process is ideal for those who don't want to direct mail to a particular market. I would definitely recommend Econohomes to anyone looking for simplicity in buying bank owned homes and rehab properties. Gabrielle

Tracy makes you feel very comfortable in doing a purchase of a home that is not the norm. (paying for a home and holding for mo's with out obtaining title for up to 6 mo's.) I know at first I was very uncomfortble with doing it this way but the more I talked to her the more assured I felt. Thanks Tracy!! Rex Riedel

I've worked with Jordan Fankhauser on several properties and things went smoothly. He takes care of the details and gets the closing done in a timely manner - buying several more from him as we speak. Great company to work with if you want a good deal on real estate!

Econohomes is the real deal! We have purchased two homes from them in the last 3 months and they are great! Very professional, and even more importantly honest.We are new to the buying process and they have made things easy and affordable for us to get into investing. I would highly reccommend them to anyone looking into purchasing either their own home or an investment property. John Campbell has been a huge help every step of the way!

Those guys are the truth. They get things done. They have high professional skill in the work they do. I bought a house from them and pay it off in 10 months. That definitely beats the 30 year mortgage thing. They are the go to person if you ever decide to buy a house. Thanks Stanley

I am working with Econohomes currently- from the title side. We have worked with Michael Sanders, David Barnhart, and Israel Castillo. They have all been fantastic to work with. We receive responses back immediately- and all 3 sales representatives are very knowledgeable! The closing department at Econohomes has also been fantastic! As a title company, we look forward to closing more transactions in the future!

Traci with Econohomes is more wonderful than words can describe. She supported us through the whole process and made everything really simple. All questions were answered promptly without hesitation. She made herself available whenever we needed her within reason.(We all have lives outside of work.) She even kept watch on a property for us while another buyer was looking at it. When it became avaiable,we got lucky homes go fast, she was there to make sure we could get in on the deal. all homes are fairly priced and there are no hidden charges or fees. All information is valid, and you even can check out the place as proof. The whole experience overall was memorable and I feel everyone will have a good experience. While the process is a little different then conventional home buying everything goes smoothly and there is no pressure. Less ... More

I was so excited to see my childhood home on the market after it foreclosed on. Econohomes helped me to get the house back into the family. The experience was scary in the beginning but in the end I am 110% satisfied. I have now secured a future for my family with my investment. Thanks Econohomes and a special thanks to Michael. Michael went above and beyond to make sure this property became mine.

A couplle friends and I have started an investment partnership to buy foreclosed homes or distressed homes rehab them and present them back to the public for purchase.I've been remodling homes for more than 20 years and have never had an oppotunity to purchase outright a house.Econohomes has made that possible with outstanding service, a large selection, paticient and understanding staff and rapid sale.Thier rep Travis Hubbard walk us through numorous possibilities until we found the one we wanted.From start to finish with all the paperwork and searches the process only took a week.We've already started looking for or next house through Econohomes.I read an articale and blog "Callahan's Cleveland Diary",clearly the author of it didn't do much research.Except to find what he could down play,I wonder what he paid for his house and how much does it cost now.Sure Econohomes makes a proffit,they're a business with a legitamate product for sale to a legitamate market.I have seen a trimendous savings in my purchase and if econohomes made money on that,THAT'S JUST GOOD BUSINESS.The process of buying a house through Econohomes was much easier that trying to respond to Callahn's blog. Thanks Econohomes and thank you Travis Hubbard,I see a long lasting relationship and friendship. Less ... More

David was reeal easy to work with and very friendly,yet professional.In fact he gave me a heads up on the last prop and kind of made me feel special.I would recommend this company to a first time investor or an old dog like me.But as a rule of thumb one should always buy title ins?

I have been investing in real estate for a little over 10 years, I have bought several houses through various entities (HUD, Fannie Mae, FSBO's, auctions...). Unlike some of the institutions I have worked with in the past EH always provided me the right person to contact with specific questions. Tracy (my salesperson) did a great job, while we did have a problem with our purchase that was out of the control of EH, Tracy always provided us with an prompt and honest answer to our questions and did so in a professional manner and I would/have highly recommend her to anyone considering a house for sale through Econohomes.

Dealing with EconoHomes has been a flawless experience. Our first purchased property was almost to good to be true due to the pleasant dealing with my sales agent Traci and with the rest of the staff and the speed of the entire purchasing process. Having purchased our second property (with in 1 month of each other) Traci, once again was extremely professional and placed a personal touch to ease the purchase. Once again proving the ease and speed of the entire process. It is great to deal with a reputable company with excellent staff at all levels. I gives me as an investor peace of mind so that I am able to focus on the next project. Thanks guys. Less ... More
