I found this for anyone who is still interested in this. I found that NOT pressing the home key worked as stated in these instructions:

With the device turned off, press and hold the Volume Up key.

While holding the Volume Up key, press and hold the Power key.

Release both keys when the Recovery Booting message is displayed in the top left corner and the Galaxy Tab 3 logo appears.

Press the Volume Down key to scroll to wipe data/factory reset.

With wipe data/factory reset highlighted, press the Power key.

Press the Volume Down key to scroll to Yes --delete all user data, and then press the Power key.

Once the wipe is complete, press the Power key to select reboot system now.

The master reset is now complete. The device will restart.
