We were going to tear down our South Tampa home in Sunset Park, but we decided to put it on the market "as is" thinking everyone would want to tear it down. What we have learned is that there has been a shift in the market, builders do not want to pay the premium prices they were paying for tear downs, and people want to move into a home that is "move-in" ready. Now, this may or may not be the situation with your home. There have been several responses to your question, but I wanted to give you the name and number of our realtor who has been amazing though this process: Carol Pooley. I would recommend her without any reservation as she is definitely about representing the "homeowner" to obtain the best price and value for your home. Furthermore, she has also made excellent recommendations regarding the renovation of our home while being extremely cautious about spending too much money. Be sure to do your research, so the home is not stolen for a low price from you! There is a market for the size home you have and it may/may not be worth the time and energy to fix what's ailing it to be sold for the best possible price. If you need any further information, do not hesitate to reach out. We are doing some remodel right now to get our home back on the market. Best of luck!
"Selling my “unique” home had become a challenge. In a nine month period, it was shown twice, without any interest. I felt I needed an aggressive, award winning realtor. Carol’s 15 years experience was a perfect match for selling my home. She advised me on staging and uncluttering. Her knowledge of the current market was invaluable in the negotiation process. Carol completed the transaction smoothly and handled each issue through the closing with finesse. She also negotiated a condo lease for me and handle that with the same professionalism. Carol Pooley will always be my recommendation to anyone in selling and buying a home. She’s awesome!"
"If you are looking for a professional and honest realtor that will work hard for you to get the best deal and make YOU the most money, then don’t look further – Carol Pooley is the answer.
When I spoke with Carol about what I was looking for in profit and areas of interest for our new home she gave me more than just her honest opinion, she was knowledgeable and pulled local comps along with immediately working on a list of homes that would fit our new needs and our budget. Beyond her knowledge The Tomlin St Cyr Real Estate Team stood out as well; they spend a lot of their efforts ensuring your home is visible in the community: their social media presence was strong, and I could tell they put a lot of work into their listings. They never post a home unless the photos are of professional grade showcasing your home and highlighting the points that will help you get those extra dollars. As well they carry themselves in the community with a level of professionalism and involvement that was important for me when aligning myself and my home.
The first time we saw our listing we were blown away. Carol’s hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. The first buyer that saw our home in person put in an offer. At one point, we had 5 offers within the listing being up for 2 days.
Our house went under contract 3 days after we put it on the market at 3% over asking price. We accepted and Carol walked us through every step of the closing process and more importantly was PRESENT for every inspection, appraisal, and walk through that needed to happen. She was always readily available and spent hours on and off the phone educating us on the market and both the selling/buying process we were engaged in. I don’t think we could have purchased a new home and sold our home in a span of just 2 months total if it wasn’t for the dedicated support of Carol.
When purchasing our new home, Carol worked to get our entire closing costs covered by the seller and purchase a home in a prime South Tampa location for well under the market value. Carol wasted no time pursuing the listing agent for that home and negotiating back and forth to get us EVERYTHING we wanted out of the deal. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience and this entire process has made Carol apart of our family forever.
I've recommended Carol Pooley to everyone I know. She is the epitome of a true professional and a genuinely good person in our community. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor."
"Carol was absolutely fantastic through our first home buying experience. When there were any hiccups in the road she handled them like the ultimate professional that she is. When you are navigating trying to buy a new home, especially in a new area, I cannot say how important it is to research, trust, and have confidence in your realtor. Carol is now family, and I would not for a second let anyone I care about use anyone else."
"I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how wonderful Carol Pooley was to work with selling my home. She went above and beyond the call of duty to get everything listed beautifully, the pictures she had done made me remember why I loved that home! She even went room by room to stage them to show the best. Due to her brilliant skills we had a contract on the house within a couple of days of listing the home, and sold in about a month. When any inspections or work had to be done during work hours she made sure she was available to help if I was not able to be there. All in all she the whole home selling process a piece of cake! If you are looking to buy or sell a home she is definitely the lady I would recommend calling to get it done."
