In addition to the main areas of concern people looking at homes for sale will also be looking at more superficial issues. While superficial issues won't be a make or break issue for most buyers, taking care of these minor problems generally involves a small monetary investment with the potential of decent payoff. By fixing holes in walls, painting if needed, cleaning the floors and carpets, and replacing any broken windows you can really improve the appearance of your home. That improvement in appearance should correspond to more dollars in your pocket.
One thing you may want to consider if you are selling your home in Tampa is selling to cash buyer. A cash buyer is a company that is looking to buy homes as an investment. That means that they are interested in buying and selling a home rather than living in it. Because of this cash buyer companies are usually much less demanding in terms of what they want in home repairs. While a cash buyer may not offer you as much money as you could get by listing your home, the money you save in repairs often more than makes up for it.
