Before you sell your home, your Realtor® will talk to you quite a bit about home staging, highlighting its best features, and every other aspect of the selling end of the transaction—but how do you know that your home will stand out on Tampa’s summertime real estate market?
What Buyers Want in a Tampa Home for Sale
Homes that sell quickly and at the right price have features that buyers want, but that doesn’t mean you should redecorate your home or undertake major renovation projects.
Talk to your Realtor about what sells—and what would be a worthwhile investment. Some home improvements don’t end up paying for themselves on the back end, so it’s extremely important that you discuss your plans with your Realtor to make sure you’re making choices that will pay off rather than cost you in the long run.
Small updates are often a good idea, though, such as painting or re-staining your cabinets, or replacing old faucets with new ones.
Other tips to make sure your home sells as quickly as possible include:
- Moving “excess” furniture out of your home
- Keeping your home spotlessly clean
- Putting out “show towels” and other items that you don’t use (except during showings)
- Scrubbing the windows so as much natural light as possible comes in the house
