Five Home Selling Strategies for Selling Faster in 2020

In 2020, it pays to be strategic when selling your Tampa home.  2020 is expected to be a year of changing real estate markets so If you are thinking of putting your home on the market in 2020 we have some ideas to share with you.

  1. Preparation Strategy--It is best, in any market, for your home to be move-in ready for the next owner BEFORE it goes on the market. Buying a home is an emotional undertaking and Buyers warm up to properly prepared homes. Depending on your home's condition, it can take weeks of deep cleaning, decluttering, making repairs and painting. We have many tips to share for getting your home ready for sale.

  2. Timing Strategy--My recent research for a townhome community near SR56 Outlet Mall indicated more units sold during May-June-July and had less days on market (for two years in a row) than at any other time of year.  Spring and early Summer are great times to sell because children are out of school and more people move during that time.  Assuming the market is not flooded with homes like yours in your neighborhood any time is a good time to sell in Florida, but we will share our research for your neighborhood with you.

  3. Pricing Strategy--Smart Sellers will have a pricing strategy and will be Pricing their homes right in 2020.  I recommend Price it Hot!  Contact me for a free download.
