If you’re thinking of selling your home this year, here are a few tips to help you prepare during COVID-19:

1. Cleanliness. Statistics show that the longer a buyer stays in the home, the more likely they are to buy it. If you want them to spend enough time to form an attachment to your listing, make sure it’s clean so they feel comfortable lingering. That includes giving it a nice, inviting scent, too. In addition, it’ll be a good idea to have hand sanitizer placed strategically around the house for buyers who come through, and to also provide masks for anyone who forgets or neglects to bring one.




      We definitely have a plan for sellers who request special accommodations during this time.


2. Unique features. If your home has any extra-special features that would stand out given the times we’re living in, like a particular kind of air-filtration system, be sure to highlight it. Explain the feature to your agent and have them help you accentuate it.

3. Find an agent with a plan in place. We definitely have a plan for sellers who request special accommodations during this time. Make sure the agent you hire has a plan in place to require certain things, like buyers wearing a mask in your home and possibly even gloves and those booties that go over shoes.

If you’re a seller who doesn’t want to deal with the hassle of listing due to COVID-19, we can help you with our Instant Cash Offer program, where we’ll give you a cash offer for your home and buy it immediately.

You can learn more about how we help our sellers on our website. In the meantime, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

A lot of people don’t realize that we’re in such a strong seller’s market here in Tampa Bay. Bidding wars are back, homes are selling above asking price, and even the luxury market is moving quickly.

Although this sentiment sounds sales-y, it’s the truth. If you would have talked to me a few months ago I wouldn’t have believed it. However, the limited inventory we have right now when combined with the high demand we’re seeing from buyers is making our market very strong.




The No. 1 way to make sure your home sells fast in this market is to price it right.


Although sales were down for the last few months, inventory has decreased as well. The No. 1 way to make sure your home sells fast in this market is to price it right. Don't give the consumer any reason to believe that something is wrong with your property. If the home’s overpriced, the consumer will go down that road, whether it’s valid or not.

We can help you sell your home for top dollar in the traditional way, but we can also buy it from you directly with our cash offer program.

If you have questions for us or any real estate needs that we can assist with, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. We look forward to hearing from you.

Tampa Bay Summer Real Estate Predictions

Here’s what we expect to see this summer in the Tampa Bay housing market.

Everyone thought that the Tampa market was only going to get worse due to everything happening with COVID-19. Granted, there hasn’t been as much inventory for buyers to choose from, but there have been plenty of buyers out looking because interest rates have dropped so low.

In short, the pandemic helped generate pent-up demand, and now it seems like all those sellers who previously withdrew from the market are coming back in droves to put their homes up for sale.

On top of that, as the country starts to reopen, there’s the fact that many people who have spent way more time at home than they ever planned to have decided that they want to move to the suburbs and other, less-crowded areas. People were already flocking from New York to Florida before the pandemic, but that’s a trend that we expect to continue as we move through the summer.




All in all, ours is still a robust market, and we anticipate it to remain that way for quite some time.


If you’re a homeowner who plans to sell this year, know that you’re in a great position to fetch a premium price for your property simply because there isn’t a lot of inventory from which to choose. Even if more sellers started putting their homes on the market, it would still take a while for the inventory to catch up to the demand.

All in all, ours is still a robust market, and we anticipate it to remain that way for quite some time. Homes are selling quickly (many with multiple offers), interest rates are low, and demand is high.
