How To Sell A Tampa Bay Home Quickly

Published On: June 9, 2018|Categories: Blog, Selling, Tips|Tags: |

If you want to make sure to sell your Tampa Bay home quickly, we have a few pointers. To start, home staging really does help. It does influence how quickly your home is sold. Plus, it helps bring you the most money. Here are a few tips that we’ve found help sell Tampa Bay homes more quickly.

  • Remove your family photos. People want to imagine their own family in a home, not yours.
  • Use light scents to create a welcoming smell.
  • Clean the windows and make sure they function properly. This helps make the home look better and helps assure buyers that the home is a sound investment. Many people forget to clean their windows, because it’s one of the less regular chores.
  • Repair all small issues. Small holes in the wall? Squeaky doors? You might not notice them, since you’ve been living with them. Buyers will though.
  • Keep your floors, including edges and corners spotless.
  • Make sure your grout is clean. If it doesn’t clean well, consider replacing it. Dirty grout grosses home buyers out. Even if their own grout is dirty, they don’t want someone else’s dirty grout to think about.
  • Rearrange or remove furniture until the house feels like it’s not crowded.
  • Empty your garbage every day. The last thing you need is for the lingering smell of yesterday’s dinner to turn off a potential buyer. Right?
  • Rent a storage locker to keep your boxes, seasonal clothes, garage supplies, decorations and ill-fitting furniture.
  • Use mirrors to make the home feel larger.
