When it comes to selling your Tampa house, the murky waters of the real estate market can make it a daunting prospect. There are a ton of things to consider:
Who to trust to list your home?
How long will it take?
What repairs should I make?
But the most common concern about selling your Tampa house is probably – How much is it going to cost me?
Just like when you bought your house, there are costs to consider and knowing what those costs are before you decide to sell, can be the difference between a rocky road and smooth sailing!
Fortunately, you can avoid “seller’s remorse” by arming yourself with knowledge. First, let’s get you informed by exploring some of the most common costs associated with selling your Tampa Bay home.
Fees, fees and more fees – When you bought your Tampa home, you likely paid somewhere in the neighborhood of 6% in plain old agent commission. This number can take a big bite out of the profit the sale of your house might bring and is one of the biggest costs home buyers and sellers encounter. And don’t forget title, escrow and closing fees!
Keeping the lights on – If you’re in the situation where you’ve already closed on the house of your dreams and are ready and rarin’ to move on and move in – the ongoing mortgage & utility payments for the house you haven’t yet sold can be quite the burden. Not to mention the cost of keeping up with landscaping or pool maintenance in some cases.
Nobody look behind the curtain – Or at the roof for that matter. Often times, in order to sell your property, you’ll need to complete expensive repairs that can really hurt your wallet and your schedule.
Buyer Bargaining – Like when your prospective buyer expects you to eat the closing costs, or their agent’s fees. Depending on your situation, overzealous haggling by buyers can really be a financial hurdle.
Let’s face it, in most cases, it isn’t “free” to sell your home. And sometimes, if you need to sell in a hurry due to an unforeseen life event and your home doesn’t sell quickly, it can create havoc in your life.
