Tampa’s Real Estate Market

Tampa is the second largest metropolitan area in the state and the largest port in the state of Florida. In recent years, Tampa has experienced an expanding market demand from consumers in all its core business activities, providing the perfect conditions for entrepreneurs to grow their business and build wealth.

One of Tampa’s core business activities is real estate. In the past few years, Tampa has experienced an outstanding sustained recovery and redevelopment process, at a faster rate than the general national trend. The number of transactions and the home sales prices have been increasing consistently over the last few years. Now is a great time to invest in Tampa’s Real Estate market. Investors that have been waiting for favorable market conditions are jumping in to take advantage of the wealth-building opportunities.

If you ask any real estate investor in Tampa what the market conditions are, they will tell you they are the best in many years. They would tell you how houses seem to be snatched away as soon as they hit the market, and brag about how the selling prices are steadily going up. There is no better time like today to start investing.

It is no secret Tampa’s real estate market offers great investment opportunities. A recent article in the Tampa Tribune cites a report released by Florida Realtors® showing home sales increased 11.4% year-on-year for the month of May in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area. Median home sale prices rose 12.5% during that time, while days on market dropped by 17.3%. Statistics for surrounding Hillsborough and Pinellas county mirror those in the Tampa-St. Pete.-Clearwater MSA.

Keeping up with the market and staying up-to-date on current trends can lead to, not only smarter investment decisions, but ultimately, a more successful portfolio of investment properties. At Birch Hard Money, we approve our hard money loans based on your ability to succeed, and the local market trends and indicators are some of the factors we encourage our borrowers to use to make smart investment decisions.

For example, buying a residential property where home sales are rising and days on market are decreasing, or where school ratings are high, and crime rates are low, should translate into an easier, more lucrative, real estate investment project.

Tampa Demographics

Tampa’s demographic trends promote a healthy environment for the real estate housing market. Analysts point several factors that contribute to Tampa’s long-lasting market growth. In fact, the whole state of Florida has been ranked as one of the most populous states in the country and among the 10 fastest growing in the past few decades.

Perhaps the most important factor affecting Tampa’s demographic growth is the growth in the senior population. Seniors will create new demands for affordable, accessible housing as they retire. Tampa, and other cities in Florida (Orlando, Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Sarasota), are expected to be the destination for these new retirees in the near future, which will positively impact the demand of the housing market. While there is still plenty of inventory, Investors must take advantage of the great opportunities Tampa will offer in the near future.
