Thinking of selling your home? If so, you need to get it on the market fast. Tampa Bay homes listed in the second half of April sell 15.3 days faster than the average listing and for an $1,800 premium, Zillow says. And you might do even better because Florida's prime selling season kicks off with an acute shortage of available homes right now, making it a seller's market.

Nationally, homes listed between May 1 and May 15 sell about two weeks faster than average and for a $2,400 premium. Regardless of the season, the best day to list a home for sale is a Saturday.
