There is good news on the housing market. More “For Sale” signs are getting that magical “SOLD” sign running across the sales placard on the front lawn. According to a report from the Commerce Department in August 2012, U.S. new home sales rose 3.6 percent in July. That number matches May’s two-year high of 372,000 new-home sales.

Flying in or out of Tampa International Airport provides passengers the opportunity to see how beautiful Tampa actually is. The lovely yards, homes and buildings dot the landscape, displaying pools and lush vegetation in yards, parks and even planted to decorate traffic islands on the roadways. One of the advantages of living in an area with a semi-tropical climate is the humidity that encourages plant growth and the intense colors of leaves and flowers.
Getting a great deal on a house isn’t a dream, with today’s housing market, especially in hard-hit areas, like Florida. You need to keep a level head about you, if you want your home to appreciate, in the long run. Sometimes, a foreclosure home in Tampa may be a good deal, but expenses to repair it could outweigh costs associated with purchasing a new home in Tampa, as an example.

De-cluttering and packing trinkets is another common step to take, when preparing your home for sale, besides de-personalizing your living space. This means packing away family pictures, too.
If you want to sell your home quickly, buyers need to see themselves living in your home. This means it needs to look like a model home, in today’s marketplace. Newspapers and magazines should be out of sight and shampooing… Continue reading
