With a median listing price around $160,000, Tampa’s housing market is affordable and offers residents plenty of options. Plant City is a perfect choice for those who prefer rural living, while suburbanites can find their niche in the communities of Carrollwood, New Tampa, and FishHawk, to name a few. Urban dwellers will enjoy the “city life” feel of downtown and the Channelside district, as they walk to and from work, restaurants and attractions alongside the Hillsborough River.
Residents are able to choose from a plethora of communities, and the housing market gives buyers a lot of home and land for their money. For a 2,400 square foot, four-bedroom, two-bathroom home on an 8,000 square foot lot, the average price is $221,461, a figure well below the national average and the third lowest price in the state. Zillow has ranked Tampa the number one market in the U.S. for first-time home buyers and Wallethub recently deemed it the second best city in the nation for first-time homebuyers.
Our multitude of communities creates the ideal environment for all ages and backgrounds. New Tampa has the largest concentration of master-planned communities, including Tampa Palms, ranked the “Top Master Planned Community in the U.S.” by the National Association of Homebuilders, and Hunters Green, named the “Top Master Planned Community the Southeast” by the National Association of Homebuilders at the Southeast Builders Conference. Carrollwood, the first major development in North Tampa, offers residents a strong sense of community and neighborhood, while the second oldest suburb, Hyde Park, is a unique blend of historic Tampa and modern influence.
Tampa also offers plenty of renting options for residents in just about every community. The average rental price for a 950 square foot, two bedroom apartment is around $840 a month.
