Whether you’re buying a home or selling a home, especially in the Tampa Bay area, having up-to-date information is crucial to saving time, money, and headaches. Sometimes, though, it can be hard to find the resources and the insider’s perspective when you need it! Luckily, there are a few tools out there that will change the way you search for homes, learn about the local real estate market, and find the buying and selling tips you crave.
In-Depth Tampa Bay Area Guides
Moving to Tampa and need to know about the different areas of the city? Selling your home and want to keep an eye on the competition? An insider’s guide to the local real estate market certainly comes in handy!
As part of our mission to redefine exceptional real estate service, we’ve launched our brand new website, TomlinStCyr.com, that includes invaluable tools and easy-to-find resources. Our Tampa & St. Pete Area Communities guide, accessible from “Area” on the menu, offers all kinds of information about sub-communities, available homes for sale, trending home searches, and fun things to do.
A Way to Keep Track of Properties
Maybe you want a way to save the homes you like, or maybe you want to receive email updates the second a home with all your must-haves is available. Having some sort of online account that can do this will keep you from missing out on your dream home.
On our new website, you can create a Property Organizer account that lets you favorite the homes you love, save multiple search criteria, and sign up for email alerts for homes with specific features. You can create your own Property Organizer here.
An Ultra-Customizable Home Search
We think more options are better when it comes to searching for homes. An exceptional home search tool is one that has dozens of ways to search for homes, from something as simple as a price range to something more meaningful like community features.
With our new website, you can easily find the home of your dreams. Just a few available features you can choose from include water frontage, type of property, school assignment, community amenities, architectural style, and more! Our interactive map search will allow you to identify exactly what location you prefer, as well.
Helpful Resources on Property Pages
We think that property pages shouldn’t just have a few photos and a quick description. What about directions to the property in case you want to drive by? What about a monthly payments calculator so you know if you can afford it? What about a way to contact a real estate agent for more information?
On our website, we offer plenty of resources just on our listing pages! Visitors can take a virtual tour, browse through HD photos, find the property on a map, view a detailed list of features, calculate their monthly payments based on their own mortgage, and even request lending information.
A Personalized Home Value Tool
The problem with many online home value tools is that they’re automatic, so they only give you an estimate of what your home is worth. Since the Tampa real estate market is constantly changing, this kind of home value can be off by thousands of dollars! That’s why, instead of using an automatic home evaluation, it’s helpful to request a Comparative Marketing Analysis from a local real estate agent.
We offer an easy-to-use Comparative Market Analysis right on our homepage for that reason! All you have to do is tell us a little about your home, and we’ll be able to determine what your home is currently worth based on recent sales in your community. If you’ve made recent upgrades or improvements to your home, you can always fill out a longer questionnaire about your home’s unique features.
